The London 2012 Olympics Games begin in one month's time, and organizers say nearly all of the venues are ready. More than 30 venues throughout the United Kingdom will host events. The $808 million main stadium is at the center of the Olympic Park in east London.

The stadium has a capacity of 80,000 and will host the opening and closing ceremonies as well as the track and field events. Among the venues away from the Olympic Park that'll be used include Wimbledon, which will host the tennis competition, Wembley Stadium for soccer and the Horse Guards Parade Ground where a beach volleyball arena will be created.

Of course you can catch all of the Olympic action, starting with the opening ceremony on July 27, on NBC 33.
