Fuengirola, Espana (PressExposure) July 06, 2011 -- A holiday in London this summer will have plenty of interest for those who are just bursting with anticipation and interest on seeing just how our Country will stage the most important sporting event in history. While the rest of the world waits for the 2012 Olympic Games to come around next summer in the UK, those of us living in the UK have a home advantage to visit many of the venues now.
Maybe not many people are aware that guided tours of venues that are to be used by the athletes from around the world are available, for example the most familiar landmarks, such as Wembley Stadium is easy to take a guided tour, this is where the football will be held, the tennis courts at Wimbledon, currently staging the world famous Wimbledon tournament, and Lord's Cricket Ground where archery will take place, of course these venues can only be seen on guided tours.
Other venues can be viewed without a tour, just wander round and see for yourself, Greenwich Park which will be home for the equestrian events, also the Royal Artillery Barracks next door will host the shooting.
Anyone can visit one of the world's top purpose-built canoe courses in North London's Lee Valley Park, the bonus is that it is free entry to this riverside centre and its gardens, how great to stroll around the course at leisure, and see where top canoeists will compete in the summer of 2012.
The Olympic course is now open to the public, and you can enjoy white-water rafting sessions down the course, also canoeing and kayaking, and more importantly you can hire boats, paddles, lifejackets and helmets, great, what fun, to run the course of famous athletics of our time.
If holidaying in the City visit the parkland next to Windsor Castle, and either watch the canoeists or have a go yourself as Dorney Park next to the Thames in Windsor is open all year for the public to enjoy.
Although the Olympic Park is still sealed off it is possible to take a twice-daily guided bus tour, you will be thrilled to see the new Olympic Stadium, the Velodrome and the world's biggest restaurant the athletes' canteen, and for those preferring to walk, a guided tour around the edge of the side is on offer.
A spokesman for Dolphin House serviced accommodation London part of the Dolphin Square complex said "there is a lot happening in London just now, and this summer would be the perfect opportunity to book one of our luxury serviced apartments London for a break and get a good feel for where it will all happen, especially if you have been unlucky with the allocation of tickets, we can offer one, two, or three bedroom serviced apartments in London that are great for families who want to explore London and learn more about our capital city".
Much has been written about the Olympic Games and venues for certain events, residents in the UK do have a huge advantage of checking it all out before the games begin, or maybe enjoying some of the activities first hand, serviced apartments in London are excellent value for money, much more so than booking into a London hotel. It is an opportunity to take a break in London, for a most informative and interesting time.
