London 2012: Olympic Beach Volleyball Graces Horse Guards Parade (PICTURES)

One of the most spectacular sites at London 2012 is outside the Olympic Park at Horse Guards Parade, where the beach volleyball will commence on Saturday.

Temporary grandstands have been erected in Whitehall, with the Olympians taking advantage of the gorgeous weather for practise.

Destined to be one of the most-watched events, here are some team members familiarising themselves with their new surroundings and a spectacular look at the arena during the day and night.
