At this point it’s public knowledge that once the Olympics are complete, the stadiums of the host site quickly become unused and oftentimes abandoned entirely. While this is a shameful waste of resources considering how outrageously expensive the venues are to create, these sites also have the capability to become quite eerie after years of neglect. The following are the 10 creepiest abandoned Olympic sites. While these stadiums are wonderful to look at during the Olympics, the aftermath of years of withering and decay causes the once-beautiful area to become unpresentable.
10. 1948 London Summer Olympics
Many of the venues that housed the 1948 Olympic Games were destroyed, but there are still some decaying remains located in London. The 1948 Games followed a 12-year hiatus for the Summer Olympics due to the Second World War. They were the first Summer Olympics to occur since the infamous Games in Berlin during 1936. As such, it was quite a privilege for London to host this monumental affair and the pride was evident in the construction of the stadiums. Unfortunately, time has not been kind to these out-of-date buildings that now appear downright scary. The Wembley Palace of Engineering, which held the fencing competition, is a perfect example of a creepy leftover building from the Olympic site. The building was partially demolished, but, inexplicably, a rusty portion remains that serves as warehouse space and also happens to be incredibly creepy.
