Sports fans are being given the chance to have a look at the Olympic Park before it reopens to the public in July.
They can buy tickets for a tour of the site in Stratford, east London, set to run on weekends and school holidays from March 29 to the May 6 bank holiday Monday.
The Park In Progress Tour includes the ArcelorMittal Orbit tower, which stands next to the Olympic Stadium, according to the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) which is in charge of the economic future of the Park.
The site has been shut since the 2012 Games ended in September ahead of work to transform it into the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, with housing, businesses, parklands and venues to stage sporting, entertainment and community events.
Adults will pay £15, concessions for pensioners and students are £10, and tickets for children up to 17 will be £7. There are also special rates for groups of 10 or more.
London mayor and LLDC chairman Boris Johnson described it as “a fantastic opportunity to relive our summer like no other and look ahead to an amazing summer series of concerts and sporting events”.
The Park is set to reopen in phases from July, with concerts and sports events from the first anniversary of the London 2012 Games.
