London 2012 Olympics River ZoneA short ride in the DLR from the Olympic Park is London 2012's River Zone, a selection of venues scattered either side of the Thames in and around Greenwich. South of the river, the venues include the beautiful World Heritage Site of Greenwich Park, the multi-purpose North Greenwich Arena and the historical Royal Artillery Barracks. Across the river on the Royal Victoria Docks is the huge ExCeL Centre, which will host seven Olympic sporting events and six Paralympic events. There is talk of linking the two sides of the river with a Cable Car from Greenwich Peninsula to the Royal Docks - although it now looks like this will not be ready in time for the Games. Spectators can reach the River Zone by tube, DLR or river boat from central London.
