The London 2012 Olympic Games are finally upon us, with the opening ceremony happening in a few days on 27 July. And as you might expect, there are many webcams showing the action around London.
In the 2012 Games, over 10,000 athletes will compete from 204 different countries. It will be the largest multi-sport event ever held in the UK.
London has previously hosted the Olympic Games in 1908 and 1948, making London the only city to have hosted the Games three times.
Be sure to also check out the many London traffic webcams. To help people involved with the Games get to venues on time, some road lanes have been turned into “Olympic Lanes”, which you can see on the webcams. The general public are not allowed to use these lanes. This is sure to create extra congestion around London.
We’ve already featured many webcams centred around the Olympics, such as the torch relay webcam, and the many webcams showing the Olympic venues being built. Most of these webcams are no longer active, but you can watch a time-lapse video of the venues’ construction.
UK residents can watch the London 2012 opening ceremony live on the BBC on the iPlayer. It starts at 9pm GMT on 27 July.
