Hotels/ Transport etc etc etc...
Thanks everyone for all of the advice - particularly the idea of making sure there's a bath in the room - I remember when I did Berlin a few years back, I think I spent about 2 hours in the bath afterwards, not sure I'd have survived without it...
Seriously though massive appreciation for the advice - exactly what I was looking for.
Good luck getting out of the bath !
I did London for the first time last year. I stayed by Canary Wharf. Ideal for the expo and getting to the start, both with the DLR. Plus the race goes right past, so family can stay in hotel and pop down to see you. You can arrange an exact point as the barriers and mile markers go up the night before. The family can then jump the tube (jubilee line) towards the finish for a meet up. Tube back to hotel afterwards. Lots of stairs on the way back on the tube however.
Canary Wharf sounds like a good shout
beer is indeed good, and to be fair London Pride is pretty good beer...
However, stairs are bad!
