Royal Barge, London Olympics 2012

Parked in the river next to the London Olympic Park was Queen Elizabeth’s Royal Barge, the very same one that took her along the River Thames during her Diamond Jubilee celebrations.

It will soon be Olympic year, and the next Olympics will be in London. The Olympic stadium has been completed and now all that remains is the landscaping around the Olympic Park.

A great deal of money and resources has been spent on the Olympics, and it is hoped that the legacy is wisely and widely used.
