London is in!
LONDON 2012….It’s now or never!!
If you’ve been thinking about going to London this year, either for a holiday or to make that decisive step you’ve been pondering over for the last couple of years, now’s the time to go. This year’s full to the brim of exciting events that are sure to make your trip more enjoyable than ever.
The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee will give you the chance to soak up the atmosphere of a city celebrating Queen Elizabeth’s 60 years on the throne. From the start of Spring you will be able to visit famous buildings related to the Royal family, see exhibitions of private collections and look around the most famous ‘house’ in England….Buckingham Palace. However, the main events will take place at the beginning of June: an open-air lunch in the streets of London (weather permitting), the Thames river pageant and the spectacular lighting of 2012 beacons across the country. A quick visit to www.thediamondjubilee.org whet your appetite for more.
Charles Dickens was born 200 years ago this year and there will be many activities to celebrate this bicentenary. Film, theatre, exhibitions, festivals…there are plenty of activities to take part in or attend to be part of this celebration. Dickens or Shakespeare…who was the best, who’s your favourite?…check out www.dickens2012.org and www.worldshakespearefestival.org.uk and judge for yourself!!
The 2012 Olympic Games will be a must for any serious sports enthusiast. Okay…flights, hotel rooms, sightseeing and eating out will all be expensive, but isn’t London always expensive at any time, any year. The sports ‘die-hards’ will be doing their best to be there so isn’t it worth making that extra effort to follow your country…or would you prefer to save your hard-earned money and follow your national football team to the European Football Championship in Poland and the Ukraine. www.london2012.com and www.uefa.com have all the latest info!!
The above is just a titbit to get your tastebuds going…everybody will have their own plans for spending leisure time this year wherever they want. But if you do visit any of the above events, let us know by writing to our webpage – we’ll be more than happy to hear from you. ENJOY YOURSELF!!
