It’s no secret that London is ramping up for one of its biggest parties in history this summer. If you thought the Royal Wedding was a huge event, then just wait until we take on the Diamond Jubilee, Notting Hill Carnival, Wimbledon and the 2012 Olympic games, all in one summer. What does this mean for residents of London? It means traveling nightmares, security mayhem, work disruptions, and even more people crammed into the city than usual. The upside of all this for us is a chance to take in a basketball game at the Olympic Village, work from home for the length of the games, and potentially book an extended holiday during that time. The Olympic Flame is scheduled to pass through Camden (our borough) on Thursday, July 26, and then make its way down the Thames to the Olympic village on the 27th for the official start of the games. This should prove to be one of the greatest all-time summers in London.
