A Brits Guide To Avoiding The Olympics [Infographic]By: Richard Stalker - May 16, 2012
The festivities for the summer Olympic games in London, England starts on July 21st with the torch carrying ceremonies, and ends August 9th with the closing ceremonies of the Paralympic games. As it turns out, the only people really excited about the games being in London are people who don’t live in England right now.
In fact nearly 36% of all Brits that are traveling during that time period are leaving England just to avoid the games. That number equates to nearly 4 million people or about a third of the population of London.
The people at Confused.com decided to create an infographic about this exact topic. It gives you the places to avoid and when you should avoid them, and it even tells you the percentage of people by region who are trying to skip the games.
