London Celebrates the Olympics by Night
- sarahbrowngb, CNN iReport producer
See the sights of London preparing for the Olympics at night! Tonight the beautiful lights of the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben were turned off early, and abruptly. As we sat along the South Bank of the River Thames to enjoy the sights of London by night, a slideshow of Olympic-themed images started to appear along the sides of the Houses of Parliament. It was exciting to witness, and it will be even more dramatic during the Olympics because tonight was just a test.
Along the banks of the Thames the sights of Central London are all gorgeously lit up at night, including the Houses of Parliament, the London Eye, Millenium Bridge, St Paul’s Cathedral, Tower Bridge with the Olympic rings, and various other buildings sporting UK or Olympic pride.
