The 2012 Olympic games are enough to lure sports enthusiasts to visit London, but the addition of the ArcelorMittal Orbit tower will entice visitors for many years after the 2012 Olympics have come and gone.

Designed by Anish Kapoor, the 400 ft tower is described as a "giant work of public art" and is taller than both Big Ben and the Statue of Liberty. The 19.1 million project will begin construction soon and is planned to be completed December 2011.
