'Tech & Tour of the Olympic Park'

Open House London 2017

Ask any local resident and she will tell you about how awful the Queen Elisabeth Park site was before the 2012 Olympics came to Stratford. City Steps Guided Tours’, 40 minute tour will not only explore the history of the Park but also the innovations and cutting edge technology used to ensure this stunning area is fit for all the 21 century has to offer and beyond.

Learn about the Aquatic Centre design, the man behind the ArcelorMittal Orbit and the arrival of West Ham Football Club; plus you'll have the opportunity of visiting the Orbit viewing platform and experience the famous slide for just £15 per person: (bookings for the Viewing Platform and Slide must be made in advance).

Learn about the Aquatic Centre design, the man behind the ArcelorMittal Orbit, not to miss a tranquil River Lee Cruise and of course Afternoon Tea is a must.
