Geographers visit the Olympic Park

Dr Alma Clavin took third year geography students to London to explore regeneration in and around the Olympic Park.

The first stop was the Carpenters Housing Estate. We then had a walking tour of the Olympic Park, led by Sarah Birt (Planning and Development Manager at London Legacy Development Corporation). After lunch we had a tour of the Velodrome. There was then just enough time to do a liveability survey of the East Village site (formerly the Athletes' Village).
