Using the Olympic Park closed until the beginning of the Olympic games (as well as then it’ll simply be available to event ticketholders or individuals who’ve compensated an entrance fee towards the Park), there’s not really much to determine from the park right now. There is a place around the new road from Bow to Stratford where there is a good look at the Olympic stadium, Marine Center and also the Orbit, and that is about this. Now, that’s not saying that the walk company can’t offer an Olympic walk using the view because the grand finale. But you should know the region well to exhibit punters other activities of great interest en-route. Regrettably most walk companies appear to not have that understanding. Most start at Bromley By Bow subterranean station, where they place their clients for any stroll across the awful fumed-clogged Blackwall Tunnel approach road, then within nasty underpass and thru a Tescos carpark! This really is to get towards the admittedly charming and fascinating Three Mills. But you then walk along an ungroomed river without a penny but old workshops and small factories to determine. Then it is increased traffic fumes while you negotiate the Bow Road, a lengthy boring walk across the featureless new route to the stadium. And that is it! £9 to determine Three Mills and something good look at the Olympic Park.
One company steer clear of the Blackwall tunnel approach et al by beginning at West Pork station, and travelling to the Olympic Park across the Greenway, a brand new walkway. The only real the issue here is that about this route you do not even see Three Mills. Or other things except a unique Victorian pumping station which was once known as the “Cathedral of Sewage!”
The guides do, obviously, let you know lots of stuff concerning the Olympic games. Actually spent much of your time listening and almost no time walking. But the thing is, it isn’t said to be a lecture, it’s said to be a stroll. A stroll with things of great interest en-route.
Actually there are numerous interesting items to show people within easy walking distance from the Olympic Park, but you’ll need a guide you never know the region to exhibit these to you.
