London Olympic Mania
Many hotels near Stratford – where the games will take place – will be offering good deals, and you’ll really feel a part of things if you’re right in the centre of town. However, you may find that you need somewhere away from the congestion and inevitable traffic and transport chaos that is likely to ensue. Luckily, London is surrounded by lovely counties including Hertfordshire and Essex which have much to offer the visitor.
With just a handful of weeks to go before the start of The Olympics, last held in London in 1948, the excitement is building all over Britain, not just in London. There are cultural, sporting and artistic events planned throughout the year in every city. Many of these are free and certainly worth a visit. The fact that so many events have been organized means that even if you don’t have tickets for the 100 metees final or the opening ceremony, you can be part of this historic moment in Britain’s history.
