More about the London Olympics: Horse Guards Parade
Event: Beach VolleyballWithout a doubt, one of the most heavily subscribed events for ticket applications was the Beach Volleyball competition, which takes place on the Prime Minister's doorstep at the historic Horse Guards Parade in the heart of London. Since making its Olympic debut at Atlanta 1996, Beach Volleyball has become one of the most popular spectator sports at the Games - and it's not hard to see why. Although there is obviously a lot more to it than meets the eye, Beach Volleyball is essentially teams of two scantily clad men and women diving around a large sandpit. What's not to like? Located between St James's Park and Whitehall, Horse Guards Parade is best known for the daily Changing of the Guard and annual Queen's birthday Trooping the Colour ceremonies. For the Games, around 5,000 tonnes of sand will be brought in to create London's very own 'beach' on which the Volleyball events will be played out in front of eager crowds between Saturday 28 July and Thursday 9 August. There will be one court with a capacity of 15,000 with two tiers and four floodlight towers at each of its corners, two practise courts to the east of the arena, and a further six practice courts at St. James's Park. Surely with all those nubile bodies on display, even the traditionally poker-faced robotic Horse Guards will not be able to resist peering out from beneath their bearskins to have a peek at this very modern of Olympic sports?

In the midst of the peak tourist season, LondonTown within 24 hours managed to find me three alternatives for a group business booking in central London, all at great rates. It would have taken me days to do this on my own, even if I’d known all the hotels to approach. Great time and money saving, thanks LondonTown!

Huge thanks to you once again, I tried to find a group hotel deal online but was unable to; LondonTown really did an excellent job
Sales Operations Manager CEG UK
I just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for all your tremendously patient help over the last few months. We had a really successful conference, and all the reports I heard of the hotel and the whole experience were really positive. I do hope we weren’t too much trouble, especially with all the constant changes of numbers etc! Do just let me know if there’s still any follow-up to be done, but otherwise thanks again for your great work
