Olympic Park

London 2012 has been the catalyst for transforming 2.5 square kilometres of land in east London. What was once industrial land has been rapidly transformed over the last few years into green space that both visitors to the Games and local residents can enjoy.

As well as being home to eight venues – including the iconic Olympic Stadium, Aquatics Centre and Velodrome – the Olympic Park will host a range of exciting attractions and events during the Games.

To help visitors find their way around, the Olympic Park has been divided into four different zones. Each of these zones has its own unique atmosphere – from how they look, down to the type of food and drink available to buy there.
