The Park in Progress experience will open to the public from March 29 and Superbreak has packages on sale for agents to promote.
The tour offers the chance of a behind the scenes sneak preview and witness how the former Olympic Park will transform to become Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Prices start from £134 per family of four including one night’s accommodation and tickets to the park.
Tours start at the visitor centre at Pudding Mill Lane (a station on the Docklands Light Railway) with a bus journey into the Park. The buses will pass through the south of the park, taking visitors close to the Stadium and the Aquatics Centre. Guests then take lifts to the top floor of the ArcelorMittal Orbit, some 80m above the attraction. From here London’s skyline is revealed, including St Paul’s Cathedral, the Shard, Canary Wharf, and the Queen Elizabeth II Bridge.
Descending to the lower viewing platform, visitors are given an insight into the history of the park and how it is evolving into London’s newest space Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, as well as the ArcelorMittal Orbit itself. The energetic can then descend its 455 steps winding around the structure to ground level, or opt to take the lift.
Available at weekends and school holidays, prices start from £134 based on a family of four (two adults and two children) sharing a room at the Travelodge Docklands including breakfast and a ticket to the park for all.
