'Pandas' take to the London Underground.

Summary: Over 100 people in panda costumes took to the Underground and Covent Garden for Panda Awareness Week on July 4.

Tourists are a common site in London, especially on the Tube and the city's historical hotspots, however one group of visitors stood out more than most on July 4.

Over 100 people in panda costumes took to the Underground and Covent Garden for Panda Awareness Week, and to highlight the work of the Chengdu Panda Base in China, a major conservation centre.

The 108 "pandas" in London represented the number the centre currently houses.

The furry visitors braved the rain for Tai-Chi in Trafalgar Square before heading off into the wilderness of London - bypassing China town for the quintessentially British pursuits of window shopping and commuting.

After touring the sights, the animals visited primary schools throughout the area.
