To The View Tube For Lunch With Culture

After Pudding Mill Lane it was just a short walk to the top of the Northern Outfall Sewer and the ViewTube.

I went primarily to have a look at the photo exhibition there called What The Gamesmakers Did Next.

It was worth seeing and afterwards I decided to have a coffee or a soft drink. In the end, I had this delicious scrambled egg, smoked salmon and salad with some gluten-free bread.

It was well worth the trip to this end of the Olympic Park.

My only complaint is that the fact that they can handle gluten-free food is not on this sign.

But that’s minor and only affects me!

I also find it sad, that there is no notices up, which say you are standing on top of Joseph Bazellete’s great creation that still moves North London’s sewage to Beckton. But then the only smell at this time of year is that of the wild flowers. We should be proud of our engineering heritage!

If you feel you need a walk, this is also a good point to start a walk, across the Olympic Park towards Hackney Wick and Victoria Park.

I also heard on my visit to the View Tube, that when the Olympic Park is fully developed, it will be linked by a pathway to the park.

  1. Good to hear of somewhere that caters for those of us who need wheat-free.

    • There’s a lot of good gluten-free food in East London. Especially cakes! So you can put on weight and not get ill!
