On Sunday 15th July 2012, the Olympic Torch will pay a short visit to Guernsey as part of its 70 day tour around the UK.
The London 2012 Olympic Torch Relay will begin at Land's End, Cornwall on 19th May 2011 and will arrive in Guernsey on it's 58th day out of the 70.
Guernsey is just one out of six islands chosen for the flame to visit, the others are the Isle of Man, Jersey, Shetland, Orkney and the Isle of Lewis.
The relay is due to last up to one and a half hours on the morning of 15th July, with celebrations and sports events expected to continue through the day.
The torch will travel to the island from Southampton and on to Jersey for the afternoon and Portsmouth the same evening.
