OLYMPIC TORCH.

We are very pleased to announce that the London Organising Comitee of the Olympic Games announced last week that the official Olympic Torch will pass through Ilfracombe on May 21st 2012. On it's third leg of a 70 day, 800 mile Olympic Torch Relay, the flame will travel from Exeter to Taunton via North Devon.

Planning is already underway to build a fabulous day of community events around this once in a lifetime experience.

Be part of it here at Ocean Backpackers Independent Youth Hostel and book your budget accomodation now! Beds from £13.50 per night.


What better way to enjoy a long weekend than to combine activities such as surfing, rambling along the spectacular Coastal Path , kayaking, horseriding or just lazing on Woolacombe beach with this major exciting event!
