Greenwich

Greenwich Park provided an iconic backdrop to both the equestrian and modern pentathlon events during the Games, and what’s so fantastic about this Olympic and Paralympic venue is that it is already back in the hands of the general public to explore and experience! Take a look at the Royal Greenwich and its Olympic Sites route and others below to see how you can take in some of the great sights around the Games venues.

The Royal Borough of Greenwich also plays host to a wide number of sporting opportunities ranging from swimming to fencing. Take a look at some of the sporting options under the “12 Hour Challenge Sports” tab to see just some of the many opportunities near you.
