Designed by Sir Christopher Wren in the late-seventeenth century, St. Paul’s Cathedral has for many years been symbolic of London’s strength and majesty. Up until as recently as 1962 its 111 metres of height made it the tallest building in the capital, and it remains a remarkable landmark.
Home to the BBC Proms, English National Ballet, Cirque Du Soleil and the Brit Awards, the Royal Albert Hall is one of London’s favourite venues. Opening in 1871, the Grade I listed building was built to fulfil the vision of Prince Albert, Queen Victoria’s husband, as a Central Hall that would be used to “promote understanding and appreciation of the Arts and Sciences and would stand at the heart of the South Kensington estate, surrounded by museums and places of learning.”
The Shard was born out of a vision. Not only was it to propel London’s skyline into the future and beyond, not only was it to offer the most spell bindingly panoramic view the capital has ever seen – it was to be a vertical city in the sky. All the brainchild of world-class architect Renzo Piano. He stated “I foresee the tower as a vertical city for thousands of people to work in and enjoy and for millions to take to their heart.”

The iTunes Festival is an annual free music festival which takes place at The Roundhouse in Camden, North London. First held in 2007, the concert series regularly draws an impressive array of talent: recent performers have included Hot Chip, Muse, One Direction, Mumford & Sons, Ed Sheeran, Olly Murs and deadmau5, to name just a few. The Roundhouse has hosted the festival since 2009, and Apple continue to generously sponsor it.
On this, the first anniversary of the London Olympic Games 2012, the celebration should be enormous… and it looks like it will be!
