"Comprehensive Tour Packages For London Marathon and Ride London. Travel : Hotel : Support"





People often say that the biggest cause of fear or nerves is the unknown. In such circumstances having someone take you to that place, explain and show to you what will happen, can quickly transform fear and dread into genuine excitement.

If this is your first London Marathon or your first ever marathon, it is important that you appreciate that 99% of those on the start line will have some degree of nerves or apprehension… and so they should!

WRP Tours offer a complimentary walking tour of the start area for both runners and their spectators. The tour leaves at 15.30 from the gates of Greenwick Park. Each of the WRP Tours walking groups will comprise approx 25, led by our staff who has done the marathon on a number of occasions and will lasts approx 1½ hours. This optional part of the weekend package  is extremely popular, so if you would like to participate, it makes sense to reserve places when you first book!  Either attach a note to your booking form and/or send a reservation request via e-mail. Children are very welcome but please indicate numbers and ages.

Our route provides a superb view over the course as it winds its way through historic Greenwich and through the Isle of Dogs. You will be able to see the start areas and for the spectators, where the WRP Tours Spectator Service will operate. At the conclusion of the tour (about 16.45 hrs) there is the additional option to join WRP Tours staff as they go to the ExCeL Centre and Marathon Expo for your Marathon registration.

Most importantly, we explain the sequence of what happens on Sunday from the moment you arrive until the moment the race starts… and the pitfalls to avoid!

Advisory note:

  • For those using wheelchairs or who have difficulty accessing slopes please be aware that the route includes 400m of steep uphill.
