Johnson is adamant that London puts on a great show across the capital to match the sporting spectacle taking place at the Olympic Park.
He will present his vision for a series of Live Sites in Hyde Park, Victoria Park, Jubilee Gardens and Potters Field where visitors can enjoy a range of free events with a ‘carnival atmosphere'.
Trafalgar Square, while not a Live Site, will be linked with Covent Garden and Leicester Square to create a huge pedestrian area.
Other plans include a 12-week arts festival with commissions from some of the world's finest artists.
"We're under no illusion about the mammoth tasks ahead in planning and preparing for the world to come and experience our capital," said Johnson.
"It would be remiss of us to think people will stay away from such an occasion - simply put, it will be ‘business as unusual'. But we will be more than ready and are carefully planning these momentous and historic days for our city. Any visitor to London during a normal summer is spoilt for choice - in 2012 we'll be raising it several notches."
