TfL is holding a series of Road Shows to advise residents about changes in travel arrangements and road closures in Brent during the games.  They will be in Willesden Sunday 1 July 11:00-17:00 Sainsbury's Willesden Green.

The Olympic Torch Relay will pass through Brent on 25th July. It will travel along Harrow Road, Wembley High Road, the Stadium, and up to Kingsbury via Brent Town Hall to leave the borough into Barnet at 12:15. 

There will be parking suspensions along the route and a rolling road closure.  Buses will be re-directed. The Brent Magazine has details of the route and recommended places to stand. After the relay, spectators will be encouraged to visit this event:
