The extraordinary summer of 2012 has come and gone and the Discovering Places project has come to an end.

Over 250,000 people actively took part in a Discovering Places activity in their local community, with many 1000’s more joining in on line!

Across the UK we …

  • Found over 400 links to all 206 Olympic and Paralympic countries
  • Meet 4,600 different species and created over 12,000 biological records
  • Discovered and Explored the Great Glen and Lee Valley

Online, offline, indoors and out, communities joined in and discovered their local spaces and places.

You can read more about the successes of our project in the final report.

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