Travelling via land, air and sea, more than 180 communities in England will experience the Queen’s Baton on a route spanning 2,500 miles (4,000 kilometres).
Kicking off on Thursday 2 June, the Baton will spend five days in London, coinciding with the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Weekend, celebrating The Queen’s 70th year as Monarch and Head of the Commonwealth.
The Baton will then continue the international journey, visiting the Falkland Islands, Jersey, Guernsey, and the Isle of Man, before touring home nations of Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales.
It returns to England on Monday 4 July to commence a 25-day tour of the regions with activities and notable visits throughout. To name a few, the Baton begins its journey with a visit to the Eden Project in Cornwall on the 4 July, will delve into the depths of the Nottingham Castle caves on 10 July, will speed down a zip wire in the Lake District on 16 July, and will finish with a visit to Aston Hall on 28 July, the day of the Opening Ceremony for Birmingham 2022.
