As you surely know, the 2012 summer Olympics are going to be held in London. And more precisely, they will be held in East London, an area that doesn’t yet have the same appeal as the western part of the city. But this neighborhood is about to become the center of the world for one month, which is a very good reason to discover it now. Go through the famous markets, such as London’s oldest market Spitafield, the history left by the terrifying Jack the Ripper, the skyscrapers of Canary Wharf or simply great local historic pubs. Just get ahead of everyone and know more about this upcoming place to be.
