It’s huge, it’s in Hackney (and the other host boroughs, of course) and it’s happening this summer. Yes, the Games are in town. Take a walk with us through artist-haven Hackney Wick and see how industrial East London is evolving. Hear about historical firsts; underground movements past and present; revolutionary toymakers; who the winners and losers are in the gentrification debate; and take in the views of National Stadium and evolving Olympic Park as it draws ever close to completion. As featured in our Guardian newspaper tour, but does not include Middlesex Filter Beds.
