The Olympic Torch will be coming close to Tonbridge, but not quite into it. Torchbearers will carry the Flame through more than 1,000 cities, towns and villages in the UK. Lit in Greece, the Olympic Flame arrives in the UK on 18 May 2012.
Representing peace, unity and friendship, the Flame will be carried by 8,000 inspirational Torchbearers during the Olympic Torch Relay. As it makes its way across the UK on a 70-day journey it will bring the excitement of the Games to everyone.
It will be coming to the borough of Tonbridge and Malling on 20th July 2012, in Borough Green. The torch will be winding its way through the village on it’s way to Seal and Sevenoaks and still won’t come within ten miles of Tonbridge.
