‘The Story of the Games’ exhibition brings the development of the Paralympic Games to Regent Street, London. Explore the history of the Paralympic Games, from its origins at Stoke Mandeville Hospital, to the upcoming Games in Paris this summer. This exhibition includes a range of images, objects, athlete testimonies, and links to our digital content – such as the recently launched Global Virtual Museum. The display is part of the Crown Estate’s Summer of Sport festival, which includes screenings of the Olympics and the Paralympics. We will also be holding events as part of this programme.
