Queen Elisabeth Guiding Services!

Queen Elisabeth Guiding Services

Over 70 volunteers have received the training and are ready and raring to be a guide!

As part of the Paralympic legacy, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park has been designed to be as accessible as possible for all visitors.  Thanks to a partnership with Guide Dogs, the community sighted guides form an important part of the Park’s wider Park Mobility service.

“Guide Dogs London are pleased the Park is continuing to develop its trainers and volunteers in sighted guide skills and to be working in conjunction with them to increase accessibility of an iconic site.” – Craig Weeks, Guide Dogs

What can we offer?

  • Meet and greet at Stratford Station
  • Free tours around the Park* – comments on what’s around them, sounds and smells
  • Sighted guides with an incredible knowledge and passion for the Park
  • First class customer service!

“All the volunteers really made the whole experience enjoyable for everyone with their knowledge, friendliness and understanding. I would highly advise others to utilise such a wonderful service.”  – Laura Ross, East London Vision
