Take a dip at the London Aquatics Centre

Fine-tune your front crawl in the epic Zaha Hadid-designed building where Tom Daley still trains. The centre has three top-notch pools for you to dip your toes in – budgie-smugglers optional.
London Aquatics Centre. Stratford. £4.95-£5.20.

Slide down the ArcelorMittal Orbit

You won’t break any records whizzing down the world’s longest and tallest tunnel slide, but if you rock up on July 29 you will get free ‘rush-enhancing’ ice cream before your ride. Champion.
ArcelorMittal Orbit. Stratford. £16.50, £10.50-£13.50 concs.
