London's August Bargain Bonanza
Ignore all the reports in press and TV about the lack of security and accommodation in London during the Olympics and Paralympics! Ignore forecasts of chaos on London's roads and airports. If you are visiting London during August you will find last minute London hotel bargains galore, smoothly running airports and London Transport arrangements - and sunny days, after the wettest June and July on record.
This is good news if you are visiting London for ticketed Olympic events, or just wish to see them all for free on the giant screen in Hyde Park's Olympic festival area. And if you are visiting London for its royal and historic heritage, its unrivalled theatre, music, art, restaurants, pubs and shopping, you will find this usually packed month surprisingly uncluttered and uncongested because most visitors are watching the Olympics. Check out Offtolondon's Golden tours for best bargains.
While the world is focused on the sporting events taking place in the remarkable Olympic Village, Greenwich and Hyde Parks, Horse Guard's Parade, Windsor and other venues, London continues to offer a world class calendar of cultural events, as a brief scan of Burlington Bertie's London Highlights and Shophound Alexia's Free London will show.
