London, the capital of England and the United Kingdom, is a 21st-century city with history stretching back to Roman times. At its centre stand the imposing Houses of Parliament, the iconic ‘Big Ben’ clock tower and Westminster Abbey, site of British monarch coronations. Across the Thames River, the London Eye observation wheel provides panoramic views of the South Bank cultural complex, and the entire city.
While the rest of Europe use the Euro as their currency, the UK still use the Pound.
The weather in the London during race time in April is around 15 degrees, so we advise our runners and tour members to pack warm clothes. The nights can also be very cold.
