Greek National Tourism Organization & Aegean Airlines host Westfield event

Following the hugely successful event where a Greek beach drew thousands of visitors to the River Thames last June, the UK and Ireland Greek Tourism Office is launching “Visit [email protected] London.”

From the 19th until the 27th of March 2011, Westfield London in Shepherds Bush will feature a 1,000 sq. m Greek Theme Park on its ground floor atrium. All of the park’s activities will be complimentary to the public, in a lively, interactive celebration of Greece’s unique characteristics as a major tourist destination.

The Greek Theme Park will offer a range of fun and educational activities, making it a great family day out. Children’s activities include athletic games on a specially constructed Greek beach, a simulated archaeological dig and face painting.

The Greek Theme Park exemplifies that Greece is a year-round tourist destination offering an unlimited variety of holiday experiences. Visitors can play golf in a game simulating state-of-the-art golf courses, challenge themselves to rock climbing, explore the Greek islands via a sailing simulator and treat themselves to a relaxing spa treatment in our Thalassotherapy and Spa Center. The Greek Theme Park features a sandy Greek beach where visitors can relax while they sample cocktails prepared by world-class mixologist, Aristotelis Papadopoulos or Greek wines recommended by a certified sommelier.

For a short time only, the Greek Tourism Organisation in London brings you all of Greece. Combining a greatly diverse geographical landscape with a wealth of culture from past and present, Greece offers countless opportunities for educational, gastronomic, athletic and leisurely activities. We invite you to sample dishes made from acclaimed Greek chefs Stelios Parliaros and Christophoros Peskias who explore modern takes on traditional Greek dishes.


Come watch performances by Mamma Mia! who will be performing live daily at 18.30 pm and three times per day during weekends at 13.00, 14.30 and 16.00pm.

“Visit [email protected] London” will reveal Greece’s unknown treasures that are there for each and every tourist to discover on their next visit to Greece. Enter competitions for big prizes to magical Greek destinations!
