The route the Olympic torch will take through Bromley was announced today.

The torch passes through Bromley on July 23, just four days before the start of the Games.

It will come from Lewisham and travel towards Crystal Palace Park.

It begins in Bromley Hill, travelling down London Road and Bromley High Street, down Hayes Lane and Wickham Road.

It then moves on to Manor Road and Crystal Palace Park Road.

Once it is in the park it will pass along the gravel track on the site of the old Crystal Palace, past the grand staircase and the National Stadium.

It will leave the borough via Anerley Hill, heading in the direction of Sutton.

An average of 115 torchbearers a day will carry the Olympic Flame during its 8,000 mile journey around the UK before it arrives at the Olympic Stadium on 27 July for the lighting of the cauldron at the opening ceremony, signifying the official start of the Games.
