Boating tours of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park are to give community groups a sneak peak of the development before it opens to the public next year.
The trips, running in July and August, are to offer curious locals a glimpse into how work in the Park is progressing.
London Legacy Development Corporation’s chief executive Dennis Hone said: “This ongoing construction work means we are no longer able to run public bus tours around the site.
“So, we are taking to the waves and running boat tours of the Park for local community groups. This means local people can still see what’s going on in the Park whilst we complete our work to transform it into this great new part of London and deliver a great visitor destination and a real legacy for east Londoners.”
The 90 minute tours will be available throughout July and August to groups from Newham, Tower Hamlets, Hackney and Waltham Forest.
