There is so much to see and do in London that it can feel impossible which tour is best. Look no further. The Full London Run encompasses the best of the essential and the royal parks and palaces AND also includes two new parks, a famous cemetery, more of the river and museums. Road runners will love watching the changing landscape as you will get a feel for each community. Along the Thames you will see Tower Bridge, and the Tower of London. We will then make our way West along the Thames Path and take in sights such as The Shard, Shakespeare’s Globe theatre Big Ben and Westminster. We wont stop there we will continue west. The river winds to show the MI5 headquarters, Vauxhall Bridge and soon on the horizon is Battersea Power Station.
Things get a little more relaxed as young families make the coffee shops and cafes their home at the weekend. Battersea Park Bridges are a wonderful picture spot. We will cross both and take in the Japanese Gardens within the park. Brompton Cemetery is a unique place to run. Colonnades, crypts and gravestones are full of grandeur and lay to rest academics and military. Holland park is a hidden gem, the park is small but home to the Design Museum with its unique roof.
A hill (London style) will take you up into Notting Hill, picturesque and film like London living. On the corner of Hyde park where we tick off the Serpentine Lake, Kensington Palace, Prince Albert Memorial and of course Buckingham Palace. You will realize just how far you have come as the city starts to liven up again from here. Green Park, St James Park and Downing Street lead you to Trafalgar Square and St Pauls completing the loop you’ll spot tower bridge in the distance.
This is a fantastic run completed at your pace with stops where needed for food and water.
