The View Tube contains a café, education, arts and information spaces located on the Greenway, a permissive path running through the south corner of the Olympic Park. The View Tube with its viewing gallery was set up to allow visitors to observe progress on the Olympic Games site. The building also includes a cycle hire business. East of the Café is a small area laid out as a garden for visitors, particularly for school parties. Guided parties are frequent visitors. The building and café itself use sustainable and recycled materials.
