If you’re looking to see as much of London as possible in one go, this is the tour for you – it really does have everything! Starting out on the famous River Thames near one of London’s main train stations, Waterloo, we’ll head West along the river through some of the city’s most expensive living areas. As we zig zag across the bridges you’ll see some of London’s most iconic landmarks like the Houses of Parliament, the London Eye, the Tate Britain Art Gallery and the not so secret MI6 building.

Next it’s Battersea Park, one of our most beautiful green spaces, on the South side of the river, before we head to Brompton Cemetery. You’ll learn about the history of the cemetery and some of its most famous inhabitants as we weave through the rows of tombs and tombstones. After Brompton Cemetery, we’ll run through Holland Park and Notting Hill before turning into Kensington Palace Gardens. This part of the tour covers a few green spaces. After Kensington Palace Gardens, we’ll jog through Hyde Park and Green Park, then along the Mall to Buckingham Palace and St James’ Park. Take in the sites as we move through Whitehall past the famous Downing St and through Trafalgar Square. Next, we’re heading up to the Strand and through the old News District on Fleet St before the iconic St Paul’s Cathedral comes into view.

After we’ve stopped for a photo or two at St Paul’s, we’re off to the Monument and across the site of the oldest bridge on the River, London Bridge. Take in the amazing views on both sides; to the East: Tower Bridge, the Shard and City Hall; to the West: Millennium Bridge, the Tate Modern and the London Eye. Finally, we head back West along the Southbank to our finish point outside Waterloo station. As we say, the London half marathon tour has a bit of everything! We recommend taking this tour early on in the morning to get the best experience before the hustle and bustle starts.

    Outstanding Tour

    This was my wife and I’s first tour with Go Running but it was not our last. Steve was waiting for us at our hotel right on time and took on us an excellent 21k+ tour of London. We were only in the city for a short period of time and we felt that Steve gave us a nice glimpse into what the city has to offer. He made a point to show us the smaller things as we passed by them – the things that would normally be overlooked on guided tours. Honestly, the km’s flew by while Steve gave great facts and tidbits about each area. Towards the end of the 21k, we hadn’t yet seen Buckingham Palace, Steve was more than happy to extend our run a couple k’s in order for us to have a look. When I’m in London again, the very first thing I book will be a tour with Steve. See ya on Strava Steve!
