Tube / Trains / DLR

London Underground, London Overground and the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) all have extra services on event day, and this is by far the best way to get around. Tube services in central areas will be running as normal, but please be aware that services may be extremely busy. The Jubilee, Circle and District lines, and DLR have stops in close proximity to the Marathon route and are likely to be busier than usual.


Buses travelling on roads affected by the Marathon will either be diverted or will not run the full length of their route until after the event. To find out more, visit

Santander Cycles

Some Santander Cycles docking stations located on the Marathon route will be suspended from Saturday evening until Sunday evening.
