London 2012 Olympics Central ZoneLondon could never have hosted the Olympic Games without showcasing the historic sites of its spectacular city centre - and the London 2012 Central Zone will allow spectators from all around the world combine their sporting schedule with a spot of sightseeing. A stone's throw from Trafalgar Square, Horse Guards Parade will be transformed into a Beach Volleyball venue, Earls Court will host the Volleyball, Hyde Park the Triathlon and Marathon Swimming, Lord's Cricket Ground the archery, while the Cycling Road Race and Marathons will finish on The Mall in the shade of the Queen's official residence, Buckingham Palace. A touch further afar, the Tennis competition will take place on the pristine grass courts of Wimbledon's famous All England Club, Wembley Stadium will host the football finals and an array of games in the preliminary and knock-out stages, and Wembley Arena will hold the Badminton and Rhythmic Gymnastics programme. Outside the Greater London area - but still within easy reaching distance - are Eton Dorney (Rowing), Lee Valley White Water Centre (Canoeing) and Hampton Court (Road Cycling Time Trial).
