Introduction: The Jubilee Greenway Walk
Connecting central London’s 2012 Olympic and Paralympic venues with some of the capital’s best parks, attractions, heritage and views by walking or cycling the 37 mile (60 km) Jubilee Greenway Walk, much of it along the Regent’s Canal and the River Thames. Designed to celebrate Her Majesty The Queen’s 60th anniversary this is one of the best ways to get to know London, see the city and meet its people.
You'll pass by the O2 Arena, which hosted the gymnastics, trampoline, basketball and wheelchair basketball events or make a short detour to Greenwich Park where the equestrian and modern pentathlon events took place. Stroll or pedal your way alongside the river to Whitehall to see Horse Guards Parade which was transformed into courts for beach handball. Dip your toe - or more if it's warm enough - into the Serpentine at Hyde Park where the 10k open water swim took place and imagine the speed and excitement of the road cycling which reached its conclusion in Regent's Park.
