10 Years On,
marking London 2012's anniversary

2022 marks 10 years since the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games and we invite you to mark this important anniversary with us!

A decade since that unforgettable summer and our three London 2012 legacy venues are at the heart of the enduring sporting legacy from the Games. More than 11 million people have visited Lee Valley VeloPark, Lee Valley White Water Centre and Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre since they opened to the public – to cycle, raft, paddle, play hockey and tennis in stunning settings, to watch friends take part, to see the world’s best at an almost non-stop series of major international events, or just to glimpse where history was made.

Find out more about our venues as well as what else we're doing to mark this occasion below.
