“I would like to pass on the thanks of everyone in our group for such an enjoyable tour of the Landscape and Gardens at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park yesterday. It was very interesting to hear the ideas and concepts underlying their design and planting. I think we were all surprised at how much development and building work is still in progress. It was exciting and very appropriate to finish our tour at the Velodrome, especially in light of what happened in the cycling in Rio yesterday evening”Anne Jones
