The Record 2012

In the build up to London 2012 and the Cultural Olympiad, many sporting and cultural activities took place across the UK, from celebrations at national and regional venues to local school and community projects.

We have brought together a picture of activities which took place before, during and after the event through an online exhibition of websites to create a digital legacy of the Games.

Activities are arranged by seven main themes, which are divided into smaller groups of activity. Click on the tabs at the top of the page to browse between the themes.

We have also created a research guide to help you find records relating to the Olympics, Paralympics and sport history in The National Archives and other archives across the UK.
