As a London marathon newbie, I wondered if anyone had any tips regarding decent accommodation for the night before the London marathon? Originally I'd booked an apartment nice & close to Greenwich/Blackheath, but I've just found out the landlord has now cancelled [aaah!
Unsurprisingly all reasonably-priced accom is fully booked up in this area now, so just wondering what others tend to do? I'm travelling from Cambridge, which doesn't sound that far, but I know how travelling in London can easily become stressful, and I really want to avoid a painfully early and energy-sapping commute by multiple trains on the morning of the race, if I can avoid it!
I know there are road closures etc on the day, so I guess it would be helpful if anyone knew tube stations with reliable connections to Greenwich/Blackheath on the morning of the race?
Any advice gratefully received!!
