Olympic Torch Relay route revealed


The Olympic Flame is coming. Possibly sooner than you think: it’s less than nine weeks until the Olympic Torch arrives on UK soil. So yesterday London 2012 announced the streets it will travel along, and the 7,300 Torchbearers who will carry it. See how people up and down the UK are already planning their celebrations to welcome the Flame.

…and did you know?

A crowd of over 50,000 was there to greet the Olympic Torch when it arrived in Dover for the London 1948 Games.

An extension of the Relay was just as popular. One typical scene was at the small town of Chard in Somerset, where at 3.30 am on 2 August a crowd of 3,000 people, headed by the Mayor and the town band, turned out to welcome the Torchbearer.
