The Commonwealth Games' Queen's Baton will be on the Isle of Wight on Wednesday night, even though it appears the Island was not included in the original route.

Isle of Wight MP Bob Seely helped ensure it would cross the Solent after all, a decade after a visit by the Olympic Torch.

The baton's visit won't be quite the same affair - instead of crowds lining the side of the road and a relay of famous Islanders, it will instead stop at two locations in Ryde.

Since October, the baton has been travelling via land, air and sea.

Before reaching the Isle of Wight (sometime after 7.40pm, though this may change), it will have passed through Stoke Mandeville, Maidenhead, Windsor, Aldershot, Winchester, Southampton and Portsmouth, and will also have been carried by a Batonbearer to Ryde, via Hovertravel.

Mr Seely said: "I’m absolutely delighted our bid to bring the Queen’s Baton to the Isle of Wight has been successful.

"I would like to thank the organisers of the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games for including the Island in the baton’s journey and for recognising the Island’s place in the Commonwealth.

"There is an appetite for sport here – we have some very talented sportsmen and sportswomen competing at an international level, and, later this year, the Island will host the final leg of the UK's most prestigious cycle race - the Tour of Britain." 

Where can people on the Isle of Wight see the Queen's Baton for the Commonwealth Games?

Expected to arrive on the Island at around 7.40pm on Wednesday, July 6, the baton will first be welcomed by VIPs before a later stop at the Grade II listed Appley Tower - where Island residents will be able to see it.

The time is not set in stone (it could be late!), so if you want a photo opportunity you might need to factor in a picnic on the beach.

The 2022 Commonwealth Games will be held in Birmingham, from July 28 to August 8.
