City Hall Weekend Opening For London Marathon

Not only is Sunday St George's Day and Shakespeare's birthday, it is also the London Marathon. It would be nice to cheer on the many, many maniacs who will be putting themselves through 26 miles of hell in the name of charity and masochism (seriously, guys - the day after is going to hurt), but we lesser sporting mortals who will be lingering on the sidelines need to find a place to carry out the aforementioned cheering. An ideal place would be the top of City Hall for uninterrupted views of London and the finish line on Tower Bridge. And it's open to you this weekend...

City Hall is open to the public on set weekends throughout the year; visitors are granted freedom to nose around parts of the building we don't get access to such as

"the Chamber, a purpose-built space for meetings and debates; London's Living Room, an open space on the top floor with a walkway around the perimeter offering panoramic views; and the spiral ramp/stairs, which winds its way through the building, offering glimpses of the open-plan offices and the Mayor's Conference Room and views of the Thames and the Tower of London."

Make the most of it and head to City Hall this Sunday for a good poke around the place followed by the best view of the marathon you can possibly hope for.

City Hall - weekend opening this Sunday from 10.00am to 5.00pm, entry free. For more information on City Hall, go here. For more information on the London Marathon, go here.
