Olympic Park saw 2.5 square kilometres of industrial land transformed into a sprawling green space with world class sports facilities like the Aquatics Centre in time for London’s largest sporting event in 2012.
Organisers were keen that Olympic Park be used long after the games and helped form part of the legacy of the games. For visitors on a weekend break in London, a trip to Olympic Park is a must.
Guests staying at the Radisson Blu Portman Hotel, London can get to Olympic Park very easily on the London Underground. The hotel is minutes away from either the Marble Arch or Bond Street underground stations.
Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park
Rather than being simply a museum piece, Olympic Park is a bustling space which holds exciting events and offers visitors the chance to use its excellent facilities. Art in the Park has made sure that the space helps to showcase stimulating artworks, installations and sculptors for visitors to enjoy.
