Despite various hiccups leading up to the event, the actual London 2012 Summer Olympics were a immense success and it marked one of the few events in recent history that the famously cynical people of London were visibly united in pride. The Olympic Park was built from the ground up in a rather neglected part of east London called Stratford (not to be confused with Shakespeare’s hometown of Stratford-Upon-Avon) " sweeping a generous, gentrifying hand over the area in the process. Within the park you’ll find the Olympic Village, Olympic Stadium, Aquatics Centre, Velodrome, as well as Anish Kapoor’s 115-metre high, red Orbit sculpture and observation tower (to be re-opened for visitors in late 2013).
