Olympic Park photographs

Olympic Park London04For the many people frustrated that they haven’t been able to buy a ticket to the Olympic Park, I’ve created a page with some photographs I took this week.

The photographs concentrate on the park, rather than sport.

Please share, there are a lot of people who are missing out on this surprising new addition to London’s park life.

St Johns Church Tower Tours advertisementFrom this week (5 July 2012) St John the Baptist Church in the centre of Leytonstone is offering sunset tours of the tower every Thursday evening.

From one of the highest points in London the tours combine the chance to enjoy the stunning panorama towards the Olympic Park, Greenwich, Canary Wharf, central London and Epping Forest.

Refreshments will be available and each tour will also be entertained by local professional musicians. Times will vary according to the season and to coincide with the sunset, so please check the church website for details of opening and how to book. Full price tickets are £12.50, concessions are also available.

The church which is just one minute’s walk from Leytonstone tube station on the Central Line (Zone 3) also has free weekly lunchtime concerts and a churchyard trail.
