Surrey 2012 Legacy
It’s not just about a few weeks of sport next year. Find out about what is happening in Surrey to preserve the Olympic inspiration.
With 20 Olympic and five Paralympic accredited pre-Games training and preparation camps in Surrey, there are facilities and services to suit all athletes and teams. From the new Surrey Sports Park in Guildford to the National Shooting Centre in Bisley, Surrey's training facilities are world class.
The Olympic and Paralympic Games will be on Surrey’s doorstep, and with this comes new business opportunities for local companies, cultural and educational benefits for all our communities, and improvement to the health and well being of our residents. Visit the Go Surrey website to find out more.
