London is home to the 2012 Summer Olympic Games, which are scheduled to take place from July 27 through August 12. The UK city beat out contenders Moscow, New York City, Madrid and Paris for the bid.
The Olympic Games will comprise 26 sports, dole out 7.6 million tickets, span 34 venues, and include 10,500 athletes. If you're one among the millions of tourists planning to attend the event, be sure to make your travel plans in advance; the city itself has just 110,000 hotel rooms.
