The second-to-last day of the Olympic torch's journey will come on Thursday, July 26. According to the official website of the 2012 London Olympics, the torch will pass through every London borough and will go past or through many of the most well-known and iconic landmarks in the famous city.
175 Torchbearers will take up the flame at various points throughout the day as the torch travels from Camden, then traveling along the Regents Canal on a barge. The flame then begins passing by London landmarks, beginning with St. Paul's Catherdral and Shakespeare's Globe.
Other landmarks along the Day 69 route include the 1908 Olympic Stadium in White City, Trafalgar Square, Downing Street and of course, Buckingham Palace.
The run will culminate in an eight-hour finale concert in Hyde Park, at the culmination of which, on Day 70, the cauldron will be lit to kick off the Olympic Games.
