The Olympic Torch will begin its 47th day of the relay in Norwich on Thursday 5th July.  It will then travel to Lowestoft for 9.56am and down the coast passing though Wrentham, Reydon, Southwold, Kelsale and Saxmundham before heading to Aldeburgh.

The torch will then move to Wickham Market, Ufford, Melton, Woodbridge and Felixstowe before travelling up the Orwell River by speedboat and arriving in Ipswich at 5.40pm.

The flame returns to Suffolk on the afternoon of day 49, Saturday 7th July, starting in Haverhill at 2.42pm before heading to Bury St Edmunds, Newmarket and Cambridge for the next leg.

Suffolk County Council are expecting between 160,000 and 190,000 people to line the streets catching sight of the flame and cheering it along as it is carried through Suffolk by nearly 100 different runners.

Time to get the flags out again!
