Tens of thousands of people lined the route as the torch visited Lowestoft, Wrentham, Reydon, Southwold, Kelsale, Saxmundham, Aldeburgh, Wickham Market, Ufford, Melton, Woodbridge and Felixstowe before coming to rest in Suffolk’s county town.
20,000 people attended the evening celebration, which saw a variety of entertainment acts including music from Morning Parade and a dance act Twist and Pulse. There was also performances by the Aldeburgh Young Musicians, Group A and DanceEast.
The last Torchbearer of the day was Nicola Hunt from Ipswich who was nominated because she is a talented archer and won her first individual international medal at the European Indoor Championships in 2008. In 2009 Nicky became the first Britain to win a World Cup stage and ended the World Cup Series ranked 1st. She won Individual and Team gold at the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi - England's first archery gold medal at the Commonwealth Games for 28 years.
Today the torch leaves Suffolk in the early morning, before returning on Saturday afternoon to visit Haverhill, Bury St Edmunds and Newmarket.
Between 160,000 and 190,000 people are expected to line the route in what will be a opportunity to showcase Suffolk to the rest of the UK and the world.
Everyone in the county lives a maximum 30 minutes from the route and of course, many people live significantly closer than that.
