A true London style ceremony! I don't think even America could have created something so magnificent

The industrial scene and the forging of the rings was spectacular.

You must be bloody tall if your head is at risk of touching the roof at the back of the top tier at Wembley! Having sat right at the back, I can assure you there is plenty of headroom, and the view is fantastic. It truly is an iconic stadium.

If you have been to Wembley, please let me know if you disagree. If you haven't been, please don't.

Was in the Olympic village the other day before the games and it has all been cleaned, I was more amazed at the Westfield shopping centre than the park itself - also the Stadium is very nice to look at

I was part of the opening ceremony as one of the volunteers in the industrial revolution. So glad that most of you people enjoyed it and got the britishness (always my worry about how it would work on the world stage).

Has been a life changing experience and will miss the people and rehearsals I have been doing for the past 3 months.
