London Town

on

London was all bright and shiny, what with the Queens Jubilee (60 years on the throne) and the Olympic Games happening. Here are a few snapshots from my visit there prior to the games in early June 2012.

There is always a buzz of activity around Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square.
