The Route

Starting on the north side of the Thames you will cross the river and enjoy the world famous view of Tower Bridge, the Shard and the London Eye.  The the route then takes you along the historic south embankment, past Shakespeare's Globe Theatre and some of London's oldest pubs, and the Borough Market area.

You’ll cross over Southwark Bridge and hug the north embankment running towards the Tower of London and then return through the City, back towards St Paul's Cathedral, over the River Thames making this a truly iconic route!
