This is a tribute to UK readers. Thanks for sticking with OCAAT. I remember the day when International Olympic Committee decided on awarding 2012 Olympics games to London, I was in London that day. I witnessed the joy and euphoria among masses.
If you are in UK, you may have planned to have a have a sneak peek at the Olympics events. These tips are for your Olympic trips to London.
This is once in a lifetime opportunity to see the games. Why should you not be at the venues to watch? Your family and your children should have an Olympic experience, especially since its happening in your backyard.
London is costly city compared to any of the US cities. During Olympics even a shred accommodation cost per night can easily beat NYC top hotel cost. I know its difficult to fathom, but this is the fact.

At the end, not to scare you off, but visiting London from outside to watch Olympic events even for a single match means you have to allocate the full day due to heavy traffic, road blockages, security clearance and especially since you have to travel by car, train, special transport buses and walk to reach at the venue.
People who are planning to visit London to support home country, would do better if they try to book tickets to nearby airports , even flying to Paris or Brussels can save money as Euro rail only takes $100 or less to travel between Paris/London or Brussels/London.
All the best to your trip and cheers for your country’s performance at the Olympics! Will you be going, readers?
