Some photos of the Olympic Orbit Tower at various stages.

The Orbit Tower was due to be left closed during the rebuilding phase of the Olympic Park, but now there are moves afoot to allow it to be open to
some visitors by bus.

They’ll need to have booked tickets in advance.

Olympic officials have said that there are 100,000 to 150,000 tickets still available for Olympic events, excluding football. The London organising committee said they will be no new kiosks set up to sell them – so how can desperate fans get their hands on the remaining tickets?

Olympic Games tickets: how to get hold of them

I have spent countless hours on the website, to no avail.

I want to go to the Olympic Park & I want to visit The Orbit, so I need 2 tickets for the same day.

I want to soak up some atmosphere & support Team GB & get some amazing photographs.

(according to my tracker app, i have spent, in total, 479 hours on the website)

The Olympic Park Legacy Company was created to manage this:

The Olympic Park will be at the centre of London’s growth this century, and a vibrant focal point for events, sport and leisure. Its connections, sporting facilities, parkland, waterways and family housing will form a unique mix – building on the best of London’s traditions to create a ‘21st Century garden city’ and linking into surrounding neighbourhoods to promote convergence, regeneration and prosperity in east London.
