LONDON (AP) ' The flame for the 2012 London Olympics will be making a house call.

Olympic officials said Thursday the fire will visit Queen Elizabeth's home, Buckingham Palace, on July 26, the second-to-last day of the 70-day torch relay across Britain and Ireland.

The flame, which was lit in Greece last month, will also tour other London high points ' including Downing Street, St. Paul's Cathedral and Shakespeare's Globe theater.

Huge numbers of people have turned up all over the country to see the flame as it makes its 8,000-mile (12,875-kilometer) trek around the U.K. The turnout has prompted authorities to bolster crowd-handling plans for central London during the games.

The Olympics take place from July 27 to Aug. 12.
