Stations along the Marathon route, particularly near The Mall, Embankment, Bank, The City and Tower Hill, are expected to be very busy leading up to and after the races.
The Mayor’s Thames Festival means that stations north and south of the river between Westminster and Tower Bridge will be busier than usual. The usual warnings about possible busy periods on the Central and Jubilee lines apply and Stratford will be bonkers busy this evening due to the Closing Ceremony.
Check before you travel and consult the daily heat map.
