Come to London!

Something strange is happening. London is empty. It's the quietest I've ever known it (and I've been lucky enough to live here all my life). On my commute this morning the roads were so empty it felt like a scene from 28 Days Later. Normally, the Cromwell Road and Knightsbridge are filled with rush-hour traffic. But today, not a sausage. Christmas Day is busier.

I guess everyone has decided to stay away for the duration of the Games. So if you want to see some of the finest museums and galleries in the world without the crowds, then now is the time to come to London. There's a new secutiry system at some museums during the Olympics (like the National Gallery above) but it generally takes no time to get through.
