London’s new face

Spring is almost gone and Olympic Games are just around the corner. The city is changing its face.  Let’s see how London is getting ready for an amazing first impression on visitors from all around the globe.

This is the new face,  well… actually it is the back,  of London’s iconic red buses. They entered service on route 38 on late February 2012. I must confess I haven seen no one yet on the street. Probably I did not pay much attention! This one was on display near London City Hall.

This is the impressive King’s Cross Station new concourse.

One of the upcoming attractions will be London’s new cable car over the River Thames. It will  link Greenwich Peninsula (O² Arena) to the Royal Docks and it is scheduled to open on July 2012. Incredible pylons’ design!

This stunning display of 206 flags from all the nations competing in the Olympic Games was arranged along Regent Street replacing the Union Flag display that was placed to celebrate the Queen´s Diamond Jubilee earlier this month.

Last but not least, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
