London Olympics: The View TubeFind out how the London 2012 Olympic Park is progressing with a visit to the View Tube overlooking the Stratford site. A short walk from Pudding Mill Lane DLR, the View Tube is a social enterprise and community venue located on the Greenway, a public walking and cycling route overlooking the Olympic Park from where you can see the new venues and parklands for yourself. Made from luminous green recycled shipping containers, the View Tube provides exhibition opportunities for artists together with a classroom and The Container Café. An excellent second-floor viewing room affords panoramas over the Olympic Stadium, the state-of-the-art Aquatics Centre, with its neighbouring Water Polo Arena, and the towering ArcelorMittal Orbit sculpture, made from a lattice of red steel. As well as a shop selling official London 2012 merchandise and souvenirs, there's an excellent sheltered walkway with maps, commentary, pictures and information plastered across the wall. The outside garden space boasts many interesting artworks, chairs and tables, while another raised viewing platform affords views back over towards the City, with the Gherkin and the new Shard skyscrapers both prominent on the London skyline. Follow the Greenway for a walk through the Olympic Park, before picking up the riverside path to Hackney Wick Overground. The many paths are all clearly signed and there are many interesting walks to take your pick from - and if you fancy an audio commentary, then don't forget to download a podcast narrated by the world recording-holding British triple jumper Jonathan Edwards on the London 2012 website. The View Tube will close temporarily from 17th May 2012 to September 2012. For more information please visit www.theviewtube.co.uk.
