It was revealed this morning that the best vantage points for spectators to see torchbearers carrying the flame on Tuesday, July 10, will be Windsor Town Centre, Maidenhead High Street, Maidenhead Bridge and Ascot Racecourse.
The flame will then go through Maidenhead town centre, including the High Street, and on to Maidenhead Bridge by 11.13am.
The historic torch will then pass through Windsor town centre, including Peascod Street, Sheet Street and Kings Road, before reaching Albert Road at about 3.20pm.
After a stop in Surrey it will be carried from Ascot High Street to the racecourse at about 4.30pm, where it will be ridden around the parade ring by a torchbearer on horseback, leaving for Bracknell at about 5.20pm.
Cllr Simon Dudley, cabinet member with responsibility for the 2012 Games, said: "This is everyone’s chance to get involved with the Olympics and capture a memory to savour and share.
"We can’t all get tickets to the Games but we can see the famous flame being carried close to our homes or familiar spots in our local communities – no tickets needed."
When the flame is not being carried by torchbearers it will be out of sight on a convoy of vehicles.
