The "Hatwalk" exhibition, which has 21 of London's iconic statues wearing modern and colorful hats designed by some of the most talented British designers, have been held in London for the Olympic celebration.

In Trafalgar Square, the famous statue of Admiral Nelson now sports a brand new red-and-blue hat, complete with an Olympic torch. The statue of King George IV a few steps away has a golden hat, and nearby the statue of General Sir Henry Havelock is sporting a new head piece, too. The exhibition has attracted many visitors.

Liz Newman said, "All the lovely hats. I particularly came to see them, I've come in to go to one of the galleries this morning and I saw in the paper about the hats, so I thought I have to go and look at them. I think they look great."

Graham Defti, Colin Black, said, "Yes, it's brilliant, awesome to be fair. Quite high though. We are thinking about climbing up and trying to steal it. But it's a bit high for me."
