Caravan rooflights owners who love to take in sporting events may wish to consider a caravan holiday in London this year.

The capital is preparing for one of its busiest years for major sporting events for more than a decade with a number of world-class sporting events taking place during 2011.

Over the next 12 months London will host more than 30 top sporting events including an NFL regular season game, an ATP tennis event and the boat race.

2011 will also see the UEFA Champions League Final taking place at Wembley for the first time since it hosted the Barcelona Sampdoria final in 1992.

The mayor of London Boris Johnson said: "2011 promises to be another jam-packed year for major events in the capital, with twelve months of thrilling sporting action to look forward to."

He added that the events taking place throughout 2011 will set the stage for the main event, the London Olympics, in 2012.

VisitBritain recently revealed the main reasons that foreign tourists come to the UK as shopping, sightseeing and eating.
