Olympic Torch Arrival kicks off a Great Summer for the UK

After years of planning today is the day the Olympic Torch finally touches down in the UK and with it kick starts what will be a very special few months this summer. 

With the Diamond Jubilee Celebrations just weeks away and the Olympic Torch Relay starting, followed of course by the Games themselves, we are really on a final countdown to what should be an amazing and celebratory period in the British Isles.

So the Torch Relay is the big start of it all and so we are genuinely excited to watch its progress across Britain, as it visits every country and some of our favourite places in the UK over the next 70 days. If you are going to see it or have got some pictures of it why not add it to our Facebook page as we will be tracking its progress over the coming days/weeks.

TORCH WATCH – DAY ONE (19th May) CORNWALL

Well tomorrow (19th May) it starts from the far south-west tip of England, Land’s End in Cornwall. The flame will spend most of the day working its way across the glorious Cornwall countryside passing through some of our favourite holiday destinations including Penzance, Falmouth, Truro, NewquaySt Austell, Bodmin and Liskeard. It will even pass St Michael’s Mount, visit the Eden Project (including a trip in a hot air balloon)  and cross the Tamar Bridge!  The Torch will finish its first day in the UK at Plymouth.
