21-05-2012 : OLYMPIC TORCH IN WILTSHIRE

The Olympic Torch will be travelling through Wiltshire tomorrow as its makes it way across the UK in time for opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympic Games.

At lunch time tomorrow the Olympic Torch will be close to our Canal Boat Holiday base in Hilperton on The Kennet And Avon Canal.

Crowds will gather tomorrow to cheer as the Olympic Torch as it travels through Trowbridge, Bradford on Avon, Bath and Bristol, a popular Canal Boat Holiday route from Hilperton.

If you are on your Canal Boat Holiday during the Olympic Torch relay in Wiltshire you may be lucky enough to witness the event.

During the relay across the UK the Olympic Torch will travel by Canal Boat, cable car, tram, steam train, hot air balloon and even motorcycle sidecar on the Isle of Man TT course.

The restored Shropshire Union Fly boat Saturn will carry the runner bearing the Olympic Torch over the famous Pontcysyllte Aqueduct on the Llangollen Canal on 30th May.

If you are close to the Foxton Locks on the Grand Union Canal on your Canal Boat Holiday on 2nd July you will be able to see the torch relay from your Canal Boat.

The Olympic torch will be carried on a Canal Boat and tram as it passes through the Black Country to Wolverhampton and past the Black Country Living Museum in Dudley.

If you have booked a Canal Boat Holiday from Alvechurch from 30th June to 1st July and are cruising the Black Country Ring the torch may well pass by your Canal Boat.
