Join us on the river to see the QE Olympic Park transformation
NB: The operator required all bookings and names for this tour by Wed 24 July 5pm so bookings are now CLOSED, sorry. However a reserve list is now open (which you can book by clicking GET TICKETS) and we will be in touch if we are able to add you to the guest list. Photo ID will be required to board the boat.
Construction work is ongoing to turn the former Olympic site into Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, a fantastic new part of London. The Park will open fully in spring 2014, however to enable people to access the Park as soon as possible some areas will open in phases as construction work gradually completes.
The first area to open will be parts of the north park, whilst the south of the Park including the Aquatics Centre will continue to be worked on until next year.
The London Legacy Development Corporation have offered community groups an opportunity to have a look at the ongoing transformation work in the south of the Park as parts of the north Park start to open.
The tour will pass along the River Lee Navigation from Three Mills (Bow) to the southern entrance of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park; taking in the sights of the Stadium and the ArcelorMittal Orbit.
The boats are fully accessible. Participants must meet at 9:30am at Three Mills Pontoon, Three Mills Lane, E3 3AF promptly for a 10am departure, returning to Three Mills at approximately 11:30pm. There will be no opportunity to disembark once the tour is underway. Names of all attendees will be required by the tour operator by 19 July.
FREE to all Hackney Society members, their friends and guests.

Maximum 50 people. The operator and LLDC require the name of each individual attendee you book for and the age of anyone under 16. Photo ID for each adult will be required on the day.
To reduce the administrative burden on the Society's volunteers we are trialling this third-party, online booking system from Billetto. You do not need to register with Billetto to purchase tickets but it may make booking future events easier.
