Loved the architect, beautiful open spaces. You could get the feel of the place and how it would have been for the olympics.

We went for a walk around the Birds Cage stadium, The Cube Swimming Centre saw the media tower. Viewed the wall dedicated to the winning Olympians of 2008. If you like sports it is good to see

We were only able to see the outside, having rented a local mini bus like contraption to take around all the Olympic sites. On a tour, would have liked to have spent more time inside.
