About the London 2012 Olympic Torch Relay

  • The Olympic Flame begins its journey in Olympia, Greece. In the London 2012 Olympic Torch Relay, the Flame will arrive in the UK on 18 May 2012 and make its journey through towns and cities across the country to reach the Olympic Stadium in London on 27 July 2012. Representing peace, unity and friendship, the Flame will be carried by 8,000 inspirational Torchbearers. As it makes its way across the UK on a 70-day journey it will bring the excitement of the Games to everyone.
  • The Flame ends its journey when it enters the Olympic stadium for the finale of the Opening Ceremony. It is passed through the athletes to the final Torchbearer, who will ceremoniously light the Olympic Cauldron, indicating the beginning of the Games. The Olympic Flame will continue to burn for the whole of the Games.
  • The Flame is extinguished on the final day of the Games, at the Closing Ceremony.
