Olympic Viewing Gallery

I was lucky enough through my work last week to get up to the Olympic Viewing Gallery in Stratford. My office over looks the site with the stadium about a 1/4 of a mile as the crow flies. The Olympic Viewing Gallery though provides a much better view of the whole site. It is built on top of a 21 story Council tower block providing sheltered accommodation for elderly residents. Many dignitaries have been up there including the Queen, the now ex- PM and Seb Coe.

Above you will see the main 85,000 seater stadium, the curved roof of the Aquatics Centre and the main body of the new Westfield Shopping Centre, which will be the biggest shopping centre in Europe and house top end stores John Lewis, Selfridges and the biggest M&S store in the UK.
