For those of you who are not that sport oriented there are plenty of other activities and places to visit this month.
And for those who wish to sample at least one good pint when visiting our capital, no better occasion than this week, with The Great British Beer Festival taking place from today until Saturday (7th-11th August).
This event attracts over 66,000 people every year, featuring more than 700 real ales, ciders, perries and beers from pretty much every corner of the world.
As part of the event, you can count on guided beer tastings, beer making tutorials, live music and fun pub games, but expect to see quite a few serious beer connoisseurs too!
How to get there:
Underground: Earls Court
Overground: Kensington Olympia or West Brompton
