England Olympic Venues

The sporting action won't be limited to London in 2012. A total of eight venues are dotted around England, outside of the capital, making it easy to experience a very different side to the 2012 Games. From sailing the high seas at the Jurassic Coast in Weymouth, to catching the sporting action with some four-legged friends at Hadleigh Farm, there are some very exciting possibilities and we'll be sending our athletes to explore just a few!
