Best running routes in London
The weather is finally warming up and London is once again gearing up for marathon. This year’s event is on 22 April, but whether you bagged a place or not it’s the perfect season to get outdoors and explore the capital on foot.
London is one of the best cities in the world for runners, so lace up and hit those pavements: here are our top ten running routes to help you find your way.
Hyde Park, Green Park and St James's Park
Not only does this route take in three of the most famous green spaces in London, but it’s smack bang in the centre of town. By taking advantage of the almost interlinking royal parks, you can construct much longer runs too. The full circuit, starting from Marble Arch tube and looping around Kensington Gardens before heading down through Green Park to St James’s and back up again is around 7 miles long. The less ambitious can make as much or as little of the gorgeous garden route as they like.
