With 8.8 million tickets on sale for over 600 sporting sessions millions of people from across the Globe will descend on London between 25th July and the 12th August. Over 2.5 million tickets will be available for £20 and under so visiting the London Olympics doesn’t have to cost you the earth. However as with previous host cities prices in London are expected to increase during the Olympic period so finding an inexpensive meal or London hotel could be a challenge.
The majority of Olympic events will take place around the Olympic Park in East London but some sporting events such as Mountain Bike Racing and Sailing spread out into other areas of the country. The football events take place in Manchester, Newcastle, Glasgow, Coventry and Cardiff as well as the infamous Wembley stadium.
London last hosted the prestigious games in 1948 but only won 23 medals, three of them Gold. While at the last Olympics in Beijing Great Britain won 47 medals, 19 of which were Gold. Will you be going to the London Olympics or hiding away from the hustle and bustle? Do you think Team GB will triumph at the games?
