Private Guided Tours for the 2012 Olympics

Tours in the area of the games

London’s professional BLUE BADGE TOURIST GUIDES can take you on a guided tour of the Olympic park area with views of the main sites for the 2012 Games.

Venues right across London and beyond will be used for different sports, however most events will be concentrated in the 500acre/200ha new Olympic Park in East London.

Our tours will show you how this former industrial part of London has been transformed into a green corridor, connecting the River Thames and the beautiful new Thames Barrier Park, through the Olympic Park, to another large area of sport, leisure and nature – the Lea Valley.

Construction in the Olympic Park is now complete and ready for the Opening ceremony on 27th July. Various test events have already taken place in the different venues, trees have been planted across the parklands and you will view some of the iconic Olympic buildings from the perimeter of the park (no admission to the interior of the park).

Discover the history of London’s Royal Docks, as you travel to the Boxing, Judo, Weightlifting, Wrestling, Table Tennis and Taekwondo venue. View the North Greenwich Arena, venue for Artistic Gymnastics and Basketball finals.

Cross the River Thames to the Shooting in Woolwich and picture horses jumping in front of the Maritime Museum in Greenwich, set in its splendid Royal Park. Enjoy the panorama from the Old Royal Observatory above.

You can experience any of the above by car, coach, public transport or on foot.

Spend a day or half a day visiting the Olympic venues, or fit an Olympic briefing into your East London or Greenwich sightseeing tours. We can also plan tours with emphasis on particular sports or urban regeneration, and engage specialist guides to provide technical information.
