Thanks both. Waterloo because that's where we jump n the train home and I fancied the shortest distance after the run
boring the fun (for everyone else) is watching you getting home
It doesn't really matter where you stay in London there are pros and cons for every hotel location, as for Sun morning, trains=packed sardines, but great atmosphere.
For anyone that has run the race already - can they recommend where to stay? My family live in Surrey - so i'm trying to work out where to stay. Is it best to stay in Greenwich the night before? or nearer the finish line? Does anyone have any recommendations for hotels (not specifically around waterloo...)?
I live in Victoria and its pretty handy for both start and finish (no. 185 bus to Lewisham in the morning has no crowds at all!)...
Plenty of hotels round that way
I'd recommend the Strand Palace hotel - was great for me in 2010.
5 mins walk to Charing X station = easy to get to start
10 mins hobble back from the finish.... or longer if you went to the pub like me !
Oh and they laid on a Marathon special breakfast (no extra chanrge) starting at something mad like 5am if you were really keen to fuel up beforehand.
Hope that helps
