London is in Lonely Planet’s list of Best in Travel: Top 10 cities for 2012. The city is described as: "London is going for the knock-out blow in 2012. The Olympics are riding into town and a whole swath of the capital is being transformed in the process. London’s east will be thrust into the spotlight but the rest of the capital will be rolling out the red carpet too. Seeing Tower Bridge lift its bascules to let a tall ship pass beneath is all stately grace, as opposed to your first rush-hour trip on the tube, getting up close and personal with strangers of every colour, creed and nationality. Mind the gap! Whoever you cheer for, you won’t be alone in this most international of cities".

In 2012 London was host to the XXX Olympiad, the Summer Olympic Games 2012 (The 2016 Summer Olympics will be in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil).
