The Torch is coming down London Road on 23rd July

Put Monday 23rd July in your diary and come to London Road between around 12 noon and 12.30pm to see the Olympic flame passing through.

The 23rd July is Day 66 of the Olympic Torch Relay – on that day the flame will travel through Lewisham, Bromley, Croydon, Sutton, Merton
and Wandsworth.

It will enter Croydon in Crystal Palace around 11.30am – its route takes it along Brigstock Road before it joins London Road near Thornton Heath Pond. It will pass down the full length of London Road, then move on into North End and through the centre of Croydon, before crossing over Purley Way into the London Borough of Sutton at 2pm.
