Coca Cola's famous truck tour is back for 2021, a year after the trip across the UK was cancelled due to the pandemic.

To make up for lost time, the bosses at Coca Cola are planning to get the truck to stop at as many cities as possible, giving everyone more of a chance of spotting the iconic vehicle.

However, they are doing things a little different this year, and announcing each location as they go.

This year, the locations will be announced one-by-one, so you'll need to keep an eye on their website and social media channels for new announcements.

Explaining the decision, a spokesperson for Coca Cola said: "This year, we’re planning to stop off at as many cities around the UK as possible – but we don’t want to spoil the surprise just yet.

"We’ll be revealing which cities we’ll be rolling into over the next few weeks, so keep your eyes on our social media or website for all the details."

Where does the Coca Cola truck usually stop?

While we won't know where the truck is heading until a few days before it travels to the new location, we can take a look at some of the previous stops to get an idea of where it may journey to.

(Please note we do not know where the truck is heading and these locations are just where the vehicle has previously visited.)
