The TCS London Marathon 2025 returns on Sunday 27 April 2025. Already breaking world records for the highest number of entry lottery registrations, this Abbott World Marathon Majors event is set to bring tens of thousands of people to the streets of London, once again, to race one of the world’s most prestigious marathons.

The event prides itself on welcoming all runners and visitors to London to take on the 26.2 mile/42km route that takes in some of London’s most iconic landmarks, culminating in the finish straight along the Mall in front of Buckingham Palace. You’ll also experience the amazing crowd support along the route.

    • London Marathon 2025 Hotel Only Itinerary/1 - 3 Nights/25 - 28 April 2025

      Arrival Day
      Show details Hide details

      Depending on the length of stay you have booked with us you might arrive on the Friday 25 April or Saturday 26 April and depart on either Sunday 27 April or Monday 28 April (or later if you decide to add extra nights on to explore the area).

      London has plenty to offer when it comes to things to see and do. Our accommodation options allow you to choose whether you stay in the West End, close to the finish; London city with access to central London sights, the TCS London Marathon Running Show (Expo) and good transport links to the start; or closer to the race start in Greenwich.

      Make your own arrangements to arrive at your hotel in London. Usually, hotel rooms are ready to check in after 2pm. If you arrive early, then you can leave your luggage with the hotel and head to the TCS London Marathon Running Show (Expo) to collect your entry pack, explore your local surroundings or head out for a shake-out run while you wait for the room to be ready. The days are yours to enjoy. London has so many sightseeing options and places to visit, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Maybe take in an open-top bus tour or explore under your own steam before preparing for Sunday’s race.

      Race Day
      Show details Hide details

      The TCS London Marathon 2025 starts in Greenwich and finishes along the Mall in front of Buckingham Palace. The event starts at around 09:00am with the Elite Wheelchairs, followed by the Elite Women at 09:25am, then the Elite Men at 10:00am. Other runners will start after these times in specific waves and from different coloured Start Areas to avoid congestion at the beginning of the race.

      How to get there

      We recommend travelling to the start and back from the finish on foot or by using public transport. We strongly discourage driving to the event due to the extensive road closures which will be operating along the route. Please refer to the TCS London Marathon website for more information on how to get there.

      The easiest way to travel to the start of the TCS London Marathon 2025 is to use the London Underground system or the SouthEastern rail network. The nearest London Underground station is Greenwich, located on the DLR (teal & white) line. Other start areas are accessible from either Maze Hill or Blackheath railway stations (SouthEastern Rail network) from Westminster, Waterloo or London Bridge. More information to come when start areas are confirmed.

      Please note that we do not recommend spectators going to the Start Line as it will be very busy and there are no good vantage points to see runners. Instead, why not go to the city centre for the best views and to soak up the atmosphere with the other thousands of spectators?

      After the race celebrate…you deserve it!

      Safe travels and we hope you enjoyed your TCS London Marathon 2025 experience!
