From 29 March to 6 May members of the public will be able to enjoy a guided tour of the London 2012 site before it officially begins to reopen in July.

The Park In Progress Tour will include a site briefing and a visit to the ArcelorMittal Orbit viewing platforms where an interactive experience tells the story of the park.

Tickets will cost £15 for adults and £7 for children. A number of free tickets will be distributed to local residents.

In the coming months whole sections of the Park will be transformed with new cafes, community centres and gardens for people to enjoy.

Boris Johnson, Mayor of London and chairman of the London Legacy Development Corporation said: "The Park In Progress Tours are a fantastic opportunity to relive our summer like no other and look ahead to an amazing summer series of concerts and sporting events in this new part of London. Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park is going to be a top visitor destination and a great legacy for east London."
