London tourism rates plunge

The London 2012 Olympics appears to be deterring tourists from the capital’s centre after warnings of travel chaos and overpriced hotel rooms, according to key industry figures.

Many businesses complain they are being sidelined as tourists make a beeline for the Olympic Games and avoid the capital’s other attractions and shopping destinations, while non-sports fans opt to stay at home or delay their trips.
