We have been treated to a fantastic summer of sport. In the run up to the Olympic Games the worlds eyes were set on London with the anticipation of the games opening ceremony. Meanwhile, the Olympic torch embarked on a 70 day tour of the UK and in that time the Olympic Flame travelled to within an hour of 95 percent of people in the country.
Here at English Lakes when the torch arrived in the South Lake District we witnessed the flame board a Steamer right outside our Waterhead Hotel, it then sailed straight past Low Wood Bay. On arrival at Bowness-On-Windermere we were treated to a fantastic celebration right on our own doorstep.
