Well worthwhile, it was a great day out and at least I / we can say "We wre there".
The journey down to London was awful, we opted to go by coach. As our tickets were for the morning session 10am-2pm, it meant an early start.
Up at 3am, coach departing at 4.30am from B'ham Airport. Little did we know the coach was full of workers. It  was not a pleasant journey what-so-ever.
I won't go into too much detail except to say body odours and many had made beds out of using two seats.

That apart the rest of the day was great, we had breakfast just around the corner from Victoria Bus Station and made our way by tube to the Olympic Park.
Got to say the queues were long but very officiantly we passed through in no time.
All in all a great day out and well worth the minor problems at the begining of the day. I'll try and get a few pics on later.

After 2pm were walked around the Olympic park and later did the usual tour de-London... it has to be done.
Even meal right on Trafalgar Square and back to the coach station for 6.30pm....arrived home just after 10pm....sh..ssh....shattered....

Would we do it again......you betcha.....but not by early morning coach...
