Olympic Torch relay through Sandgate
On Wednesday 18th July the Olympic torch passes between The Sandgate Hotel and the English Channel as it makes its way from Greece to London.
It is due to pass at approximately 1:30pm. Come along and cheer on the torchbearers and take part in this historic event.
Please be advised that there may be some parking restrictions along the route so it is best to arrive early. There are bus stops outside the hotel should you wish to take public transport.
You can enjoy a good drink, good food, good views at The Sandgate Hotel before and after the torch relay goes by. Weather permitting we’ll have a barbecue on the terrace as well as our regular menu on offer.
Sandgate Parish Council is organising a series of film presentations recorded in local schools with pupils talking about their involvement, enjoyment, participation in and ambitions for sport and the Olympics in 2012 and beyond, and made available to those schools as a lasting record and via the internet on YouTube. They are also creating a photo and film archive of the day which will ultimately be on display on the day at Chichester Hall, Sandgate.
Why not book a table on the terrace overlooking the Olympic torch route? Alternatively why not view the torch relay from a balcony overlooking the route from one of our balcony rooms? Book a room here or reserve a table below.
