Things you should know...

  • Eton Dorney is hosting Olympic Rowing and Canoe Sprint events from 28 July to 11 August and the Paralympic Rowing competition from 31 August - 2 September.
  • Windsor, Eton, Slough, Maidenhead and South Buckinghamshire will be very busy at certain times and locations during the Games.
  • There'll be lots going on and the atmosphere will be exciting, however, getting around may take longer than usual.
  • As London 2012 is aiming for all spectators to travel to events by public transport, the transport arrangements for accessing Eton Dorney and areas around the venue will be different from usual.
  • Parking and road restrictions will be introduced when events are taking place. Shuttle buses will run from local rail stations and park-and-ride sites to the transport hub at Windsor Racecourse, which may affect roads and traffic in the area.
  • With around 30,000 extra people per day travelling in the area, the transport network will be much busier than usual. Transport and roads in the area will be particularly busy before the start and at the end of sessions. If possible, the times to avoid travelling are 7-10am and 12.30-4pm. However, session times may vary depending on weather conditions, so travel may be affected later into the evenings.
  • If you are travelling into London, your end destination may also be busier than usual, so make sure you check the London pages to plan your journey and plan to avoid the busiest times and places.
  • We want to give you as much information as possible, as early as possible. However, not all the finer details about transport operations around venues are available yet, such as information about spectator access to venues or restrictions to parking and road access. This is because some of the plans for the Games are still being finalised. The map on this page will be updated as soon as we have more detailed information available.
