Can we find them all?


You don’t have to wait until the summer to get involved with the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Discovering Places is London 2012’s Cultural Olympiad campaign to inspire people in the UK to discover their local built, historic and natural environments.

On your own doorstep you can…

  • Discover one of the 206 Olympic, Paralympic nations or sbobet mobile
  • Unlock hundreds of years of history
  • Meet thousands of species.

Online, offline, indoors and out, communities are joining in and discovering their local spaces and places – we hope you will too.

Discovering Places takes its inspiration from the London 2012 values of active participation, collaboration and sustainability to bring the Games to your community.
