London Marathon

The London Marathon takes place on closed roads in central London on Sunday 23 April 2017. If you’re travelling in London on the day, here’s how your journey may be affected.

If you’re travelling in central London on Sunday 23 April 2017, the main transport changes are:

Roads will be closed across south east and central London between 06:00-19:00
Buses in central London and Greenwich will terminate early or be diverted from 06:30 to 19:30
DLR will run a changed service until 17:00
Tube and rail will be the best way to get around and enjoy the day, but the Jubilee, Circle and District lines will be busier than usual with spectators and participants

Roads closures and extra traffic will make central, south east and east London busier between 06:00 to 19:00 – if you can, avoid driving in central London during this time.
