Even if you were lucky enough to attend the London 2012 Games, there will undoubtedly be areas of the Park that you want to explore for the first time and learn more about. Perhaps where the Athletes' Village was located, how all the venues fit together or maybe just the energy of the site. All of this and much more can be discovered in our London 2012 Park Trail, complete with audio and guides.

Host to the handball, modern pentathlon fencing and Paralympic goalball competitions during the 2012 Games, the Copper Box Arena is one of London’s most flexible indoor venues and home to London’s only professional basketball team, the London Lions.
Having hosted the wheelchair tennis at the 2012 Paralympic Games, the Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre opened in May 2014 boasting world class hockey and tennis facilities. Open to the public all year round; the centre offers court/pitch hire as well as a wide range of programmes in both sports for all ages.
Centred on the iconic, award-winning, 6,000-seat Olympic Velodrome, where Sir Chris Hoy and his Team GB compatriots set the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games alight, Lee Valley VeloPark also offers a brand new one-mile, floodlit road cycle circuit, the remodelled and floodlit Olympic BMX track and 8km of mountain bike trails.
The iconic symbol of the Olympic Games, the rings are designed to represent the five continents of the world. You can see the Olympic rings in the north of the Park by the Lee Valley VeloPark.
A key feature during London 2012, the Agitos, symbolising the Paralympic motto ‘Spirit in Motion’ meaning ‘I move’ in Latin is back on the Park. Situated on the main bridge in the north of the Park and measuring nearly four metres high and three metres wide, it’s a spectacular sight.
“We are delighted that the original Agitos from London 2012’s incredible Paralympic Games will be displayed in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and that visitors can strike a pose in front of this iconic symbol.”
