SAMPLE 3-Day ITINERARY
Free time for some shopping and exploring.
Victoria Herriott, Blue Badge Guide.
You will circle the Olympic Park - the main focus of attention during the games - for your students to see the ever-changing developments, including the Olympic Stadium, the uniquely designed Aquatic Centre, the Velopark and the Olympic Village. Your group will also be taken on a short walk by their guide to a fantastic viewpoint.
I have to say that no project has ever excited me as much as London 2012. Exploring the area around the Olympic Park and touring around the various venues has been great fun.
On this tour, your Blue Badge guide will provide a wealth of information about the areas you pass through as well as the planned and present Olympic sites. This is our suggested tour, but we can arrange for you to go wherever you like around the city.
Your coach will pass though Stratford, London’s most multi-cultural borough, and see the huge developments that are underway here, including substantial new rail links to reach the site.
