The Olympic torch will arrive in Yarmouth aboard a Wightlink ferry at approximately 12.44pm. Torchbearers will visit Totland, and then carry the torch in the open lift from the cliff top down to Alum Bay Beach at the Needles.
There will be opportunities to see the torch in Yarmouth, Carisbrooke, Newport, and Queen Victoria’s former residence, Osborne House. In East Cowes, the torch will depart on a Red Funnel Ferry to continue its 70-day tour of the British Isles.
