London Pleasure Gardens

Tuesday, 29 May 2012

East London will revive the tradition of the British pleasure garden during the Olympics, with an ambitious project set on a 20 acre riverside site.

The London Pleasure Gardens open on 30 June, and the 35,000-capacity venue will play host to circuses, DJ sets, an urban nature reserve, boutique hotel and even a floating cocktail bar this summer. Watch the video above for a taste of what's in store.
