2012 Venues endorsement

TPG ran this 8 day course for 6 years starting in 2007. Our aim was to ensure that there were enough qualified guides with a good knowledge about the Olympics & Paralympics and the Olympic Park area and other London venues to satisfy the demand from visitors for tours of this type in a variety of languages.

Blue Badge tourist guides who passed this endorsement are able to:

  • Describe the background to the Modern and Ancient Games
  • List the different sports and venues for the 2012 Games
  • Give insights into funding of the venues & 2012 Games
  • Guide visitors by coach and car around the London venues
  • Guide visitors by public transport and on foot around the London venues
  • Explain the vision of the 2012 Games as presented by stakeholder organisations.
  • Explain the legacy and transformation of the Olympic Park .

More than 450 guides hold this endorsement, speaking 25 languages between them. Many of these guides worked for sponsors and stakeholders during the 2012 Games, enhancing their experience by providing knowledgeable and friendly professional guiding services. Guides continue to show many companies, schools and individuals around the area.
