This photo of part of central London is taken from the London Eye about two weeks ago, during the second week of the Olympics. London is the largest urban area in the UK, with an estimated population of just over 8 million.
Click on it to make it bigger and you will be able to see Buckingham Palace right in the centre, surrounded by a lot of trees (Green Park, St James’s Park and Hyde Park). Down near the bottom right hand corner is Horse Guards Parade, where they held the Beach Volleyball – you can see the seating.
