1st Viewpoint: Greenwich, Creek Road (Mile 6,7/
Take Docklands Light Railway, the elevated train, you already used to
visit the exhibition, to get to Greenwich Station (direction Lewisham).
I won't leave at Cutty Sark Station as this tends to be crowded and has
temporarily been closed in former years.
Alternative 1st viewpoint: Bermondsey, Jamaica
Road (Mile 11,6/ K 18,7)
2nd viewpoint: Isle of Dogs, Canary Wharf, North
Colonnade (Mile 19/ K 30)
The marathon route is just below the station. You will aready spot the
runners when approaching by the elevated DLR. Thanks to the route
changes 2005 spectators can now spot their runners several times in this
area. Therefore Canary Wharf is expected to become one of the really
crowded places. Anyway, it is worth to try.
3rd viewpoint: Strand, Embankment (Mile 25, K
The route is directly at the foot of the station, along the Themse promenade Embankment.
Having seen your runner happily passing by you can easily walk to the rear part of the finish area. Walk for 600 yards along Northumberland Avenue to Trafalgar Square and turn left into The Mall.
It would be a good idea to arrange an accurate meeting point, preferably somewhere in St. James Park. Here the runner can relax on the grass and enjoy being looked after by his supporters.
