How To Book a London 2012 Olympic Park Tour  June 24, 2012 – 08:45 am
London Olympic Site Tour - Book online | VisitBritain Shop

Updated Information
The London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games have been and gone and the Olympic Park in Stratford - now called the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park - is closed as a building site until July 2013.

Due to high demand, bus tours are starting from 21 November 2012. The tours will run on Wednesdays, Thursdays and some weekends. There will be three tours a day during the winter months and in the spring and as the days get longer, a fourth tour will be added. People living closest to the Park will be given priority when booking tours (although I wasn't asked when I booked). But I can report that the tours are free.

People interested in booking a tour should contact parktours@springboard-marketing.co.uk or call 0800 023 2030.

You will not be allowed off the bus as this is a 'hard hat' building site but the tours will offer views of the work in progress. I took a couple of bus tours while the site was being prepared for London 2012 and these photos are from March 2010. I took one of these new post-Olympics bus tours the week they started and have some November 2012 photos. I've been back for another bus tour and took these photos in February 2013.

As before, security is very tight so you should expect to have a bag check at least once. The Security Guards I met were all polite and efficient. Also, if you do not bring the correct ID you may be turned away and not allowed to join the tour.

Park in Progress Tours
From 29 March to 23 June 2013 you can book a Park in Progress tour which includes a bus tour and a trip up to the ArcelorMittal Orbit for the excellent views of the Park and beyond. These tours cost £15 and must be booked in advance. I've tried a tour so here's my Park in Progress Tour Review

Olympic Park Walking Tours
There are Blue Badge guided walking tours around the developing 2012 Olympic Park every day from Bromley-By-Bow tube station. The walk lasts 2 hours and happen whatever the weather. Find out more, including how to book, from the Olympic Tour Guides site. You can also book a tour with the VisitBritain Shop (Buy Direct).

Want to know more about the area outside of the Park? I've tried a tour of Stratford and can recommend it.

Romney struggles to stem his own Olympic fallout

LONDON (AP) — Mitt Romney struggled Friday to stem political fallout at home after insulting Britain's handling of the London Games.
The confluence of events — just as the world focused on London's opening ceremonies — confounded Republicans.
They wondered aloud how the former Massachusetts governor could have complicated the opening leg of a three-nation tour carefully crafted to highlight his diplomatic strengths and personal Olympic experience.
"You have to shake your head," GOP strategist Karl Rove said Friday on Fox News.
He certainly stoked talk in political circles in Washington, of political tone-deafness, and he raised questions about his readiness to stand on the world stage
