Once you settle into your hotel, enjoy exploring the area close by, which might include Marylebone High Street, London's Regent Park and Bond Street.
This morning at 9AM you will be met by your Running Guides in the lobby of your hotel and enjoy an approx 8KM run in London to include Hyde Park where your Guide will take you on a route to see parts of London while enjoying a good warm up run for Sunday! There are plenty of stops on this run while the Guide explains and allows time for photos!
This afternoon at 4PM you will be met by your Walking Guides for a Pub Walk in London for approx 2.5 hours. Explore Historic London Pubs with your guide, who will explain the history of each pub, famous people who drank there, and the context of pubs in London’s social history.
At 10AM this morning you will be met by your Walking Guides in the lobby of The Marylebone Hotel. You will enjoy a 2-hour eye opening tour of some of London's hidden secrets.
This tour will open your eyes to a whole host of quirks and tales you never knew about London. It is full of hidden gems and peculiar details that are so easily missed, even though many are in plain sight.
Your tour will begin in an area known as Westminster where you will see most of the important and well-known buildings in London including the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, 10 Downing Street, The Churchill War Rooms and Big Ben. This is 007’s London - a London that is filled with many spies and many more secrets. London is criss-crossed with a network of underground tunnels as well as disused train stations - you just need to know where to look. You will see real spy and important WWII locations before heading over to Trafalgar Square and Covent Garden. Here, the tour uncovers some of the city's most interesting peculiarities including London's smallest police station, a 17th century water gate that is nowhere near the water, two pubs that have the same name, a Sherlock Holmes secret and a nose that is not attached to anything animal or human! You will venture off the beaten track for most of the tour and wander through some of the hidden alleys where they filmed Harry Potter. You can end the tour in Covent Garden which is a fun marketplace, famous for street entertainers.
Sunday, Race Day!
This morning you will be met by your private driver in the lobby of the hotel and travel as a group to Windsor where you will run the Windsor Half Marathon. Following your race, we will have celebration drinks in the historic pubs of Windsor. At an agreed time and location you will rejoin your private driver and return to your London Hotel.
2019 sees the 37th running of the Windsor Half Marathon which starts and finished in the shadow of Windsor Castle within Windsor Great Park which is the only Royal Park managed by The Crown Estate. The Great Park was once part of a vast Norman hunting forest which was enclosed in the late thirteenth century. The antiquity of the landscape is enhanced by the scattering of great ancient oaks for which the Great Park and its forest are renowned.
