Free Olympic Park tour tickets for Hackney residents

HACKNEY residents are being given the opportunity to get an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, before it opens to the public in July.   

Five-hundred free tickets are available for Park in Progress tours on 28 March, giving visitors access to the former Olympic site, as well as the chance to take a trip up the ArcelorMittal Orbit sculpture, designed by Anish Kapoor.

Around 130,000 people visited the Orbit during the Games and this is the first opportunity since the end of the Paralympics for the public to travel up to its viewing platforms.

The Council, working in partnership with the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC), secured the tickets for residents.

Tickets are strictly limited to four per household and you must live in Hackney to apply. Children 16 and under must be accompanied by an adult. Tickets will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

To be in with a chance of winning, e-mail: parktours@hackney.gov.uk with your name and address along with the number of tickets you would like.

Winners will be notified by e-mail with instructions on how to book their 28 March tour – slots are available between 9am and 3pm.

Tickets are also on sale for regular Park in Progress tours, which begin on 29 March, and residents can claim a discount by using the code ‘MyPark’ when booking tickets for 2pm sessions from 2-5 April and 8-12 April.

There is a maximum limit of four discounted tickets per household, and proof of address will be required.
