If you’re not planning to visit London while the Olympics are with us then these photos should help to change your mind. After watching Bolt win Gold for Jamaica in the Men’s 100m final we walked down the river towards Waterloo taking photos along the way, finishing with a patriotic Olympic themed light show commissioned by Boris Johnson and projected on to the Houses Of Parliament. Well worth visiting. Showing every evening from 21:30 until the end of the games.

“It is absolutely fantastic to see iconic images of athleticism from Games past projected onto the mother of all Parliaments. This mesmeric light show brings to life our sporting heroes and their Olympian achievements from 1908 to the present, helping set the scene for the next few weeks.” – Boris Johnson
