London 2012 Sights and Sites

We all know that London is one of the most fabulous cities in the world.  It's just not possible to walk around London without tripping over some incredible historic site, thus it's definitely hats off to the Olympic Committee for setting as many of the events in places of great historic interest.

Our intention with this blog is to paint a picture of the sights and sites of London 2012, starting with the Olympic Torch relay going through South West London on Monday 23rd July.



The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe theatrical event which is being held in Kensington Gardens was mentioned in the London 2012 blog.  This is what the location looks like.


From a tourism perspective (it's not only about the games) many countries have elected to erect temporary villages at many of the historic sites.  You can find the Africa village in Hyde Park



With Russia being the hosts for the 2014 Winter Olympics they've taken over a substantial part of Hyde Park...here's a view of the building work currently taking place.  


Stands being erected in for fortunate attendees of the Marathon Swim and Triathalon



Take a moment to enjoy the beauty of some of the Royal Parks...the pond in Kensington Gardens


How about heading over to the London Eye as seen from Hyde Park, with the newly built Shard in the background?


If you're in the market for a new car, you may find what you desire in Knightsbridge.


With the Games beginning on Friday 27th July 2012, there will definitely be more sights and sites to be seen.
