BEST PLACES TO GO RUNNING IN LONDON
London is one of the best places to go running and do exercises. I have chosen few of my favourites routes to go running in town and the best outfit to TURN HEADS with style.

1. Top of the Town
The best viewing spot, the heart and soul of the city. Run to Trafalgar Square and then follow Charing Cross and Tottenham Court Roads north to reach Euston Road. Turn left to find Regent’s Park and run through the park, on its eastern side. Cross the canal and head up to the top of Primrose Hill. Enjoy the panoramic view – This view is one of the best places to go running in London.
2. Two Bridges
Run north to either of the Golden Jubilee Bridges (they sit either side of the Hungerford Rail Bridge). Cross over to the South Bank and continue running east till you reach the Tate Modern. Take the Millennium Bridge back over to the north bank and follow the Thames Path back to your starting point.
3. Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens
Start at The Kensington Hotel and it will take you all around the beautiful Hyde Park. If you were to complete the whole route, you’d run a total of 6.73 miles. But if you’re looking for a shorter jog, cut through the park at the half way mark (roughly where you’ll find exits to Lancaster Gate tube station).
4. Regent’s Park
Regent’s Park is one of the finest in London, with canals, boating lakes, gorgeous gardens and even its very own zoo. It’s also a great park to run around, as it’s large enough to provide variety and plenty of open spaces, but easy to tackle in a pretty short jog. It starts from the Baker Street tube station, making it the perfect route to try from The Marylebone Hotel, which is an easy 0.6 miles away.
5. River Thames
There are plenty of running clubs in London who welcome tourists. On Tuesday evenings, the London City Runners club run a 3-mile route along the Thames, passing a series of amazing sights; Tower Bridge, the HMS Belfast and Shakespeare’s Globe. As you run along the glittering Thames, you can catch a glimpse of the city at its finest, while supported by your fellow pack of runners. There are three speed groups, and you can join for free at www.londoncityrunners.com.
