Still haven’t managed to catch the Olympic torch on its London travels? Today the flame blazed into central London for the penultimate day of its journey. It arrived in Camden early this morning, and the Roundhouse in Camden was there to greet it with open arms, mouths and legs akimbo!

What ho! Is that a flaming torch we spy? An impressive crowd gathers outside the Roundhouse despite the 6.38am arrival time.

The torch is serenaded by 75 singers from Camden community choirs, led by the Roundhouse choir.

No, it isn’t just a busy market day. Impressive crowds line the streets in Chalk Farm to catch a glimpse of the fleeting flame.

Roundhouse magicians were on hand in St Pancras Gardens to entertain people. Great excuse to be late to work…

The Olympic torch then headed off up to Highbury, over to St Pauls, the Museum of London, Shakespeare’s Globe, Old Kent Road, Peckham, Camberwell, Clapham, Battersea, Chelsea and it should be in Fulham around now if it is running on schedule.

Listen to the reaction of the crowd:
