After £11 billion and seven years preparing for the Summer Olympic & Paralympic Games, the London 2012 Olympics will present 32 stunning venues throughout the city – from the ultra modern to the historic transformed. A high speed Javelin train and a brand new Thames Cable Car will greet millions of visitors and a multi billion global TV audience.
When the 2012 Olympics begin – with a lavish Opening Ceremony by Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle – on Friday 27th July, London will become the first and only city in the world to host the modern Olympic Games three times, following previous Olympics in 1908 and 1948. But the 2012 Olympics in London are unlike any previous Olympics because of the city hosting them. No spectator in central London will ever be more than 30 minutes away from an Olympic venue, with some of the capital’s most iconic landmarks acting as stunning backdrops for the greatest sporting show on earth.
The illustrated map, created by LondonTown.com shows how the Olympics have brought together well known London visitor attractions and new sporting venues not only in East London but throughout the city. The thoughtful juxtaposition of new sporting arenas alongside historic sites will be the true hallmark of the 2012 Olympics as the whole city opens itself up to 805 different sporting events.
