Following the incredible sights of the London 2012 Olympics opening ceremony and the highs and lows of the first week of events in July, August promises to be another historic and enthralling month for the sporting world. Team GB have had incredible success so far, with a record breaking track and field weekend taking them to 3rd place in the medal tables.
London 2012 has given us great excitement and a lot of fun this summer, engaging with people across the world and leaving us with memories that will last for lifetimes. For this reason, the closing ceremony on the 12th of August is set to bring sadness to many as the realisation that this great event has come to an end. However there is no reason to be downhearted as there are more opportunities to experience what the Olympics has to offer and continue the incredible summer of sport.
The London 2012 Paralympic games commences on Wednesday, the 29th of August, with less than a month till the Paralympians are welcomed in the opening ceremony. The Paralympic games will match the intensity and anticipation experienced in July and promises to provide exciting entertainment, showcasing the talent and skill possessed by athletes with disabilities.
The Homestayfriend team are eagerly awaiting this event and hope to show support and offer help to those who are visiting London and attending the games. We can provide short term accommodation and a homestay experience through our dedicated London 2012 search page. You can search for accommodation now and experience what the London Olympic and Paralympic Games has to offer.
