15:20 No queues at the Belgium House right now. Come in and watch some Olympic action on the giant screen or go on the walk of fame to see the Belgian athletes exhibition.
The Belgian House will welcome all Londoners to Middle Temple Lane from July 27 until August 12 to take a look at Belgian culture and bring together two distinguished cycling nations.
Entry to Belgian House costs £5 and visitors will be able to follow the games and athletes’ performances every day from 11am to 2am live on a big screen whilst savouring Belgian beer on offer. (For those who wish to sample more than one, the nearest Tube station is Temple Station, only a few minutes’ walk away.)
Belgium is the birthplace of cycle racing, and Belgian House will be running an interactive exhibition called The Belgian Cycling Paradise which is open every day from 11am until 7pm (taking place in Fountain Court outside Middle Temple). The free entry event will take you on a virtual cycling Tour of Belgium in such places as ‘Flanders Fields’ in Ypres, on the Grand Place in Brussels and the stunning area around Waterloo. Furthermore former world champion Eddie Merckx and a number of Belgian sports personalities will arrive at Middle Temple on the opening day of the Olympics after cycling 317km from Brussels.
