6 Incredible Events You Shouldn't Miss This Year In London

Posted: Updated:

London takes center stage this year thanks to its role as host for the 2012 Olympics, but that's not the only reason to swap your money for pounds and head to Europe's most-loved island. From the highly anticipated London 2012 Festival, a mammoth event running alongside the Olympics, to 21st Century Beatlemania sweeping the nation for the 50th anniversary of The Beatles, there are plenty of reasons to celebrate in the country's capital. Here's a rundown of 2012's most important events in London.

And these events are just the highlights of a fun-filled year of celebrations in London. This year also marks the 50th anniversary of James Bond; to celebrate, the latest incarnation of the super-spy, Daniel Craig, will be at the opening ceremony of the Olympics. There will also be a special concert of songs from the Bond movies at the Royal Festival Hall in London in November.
