Where to watch
Mile 12 – Tower Bridge
Spectators can view runners approaching the 12 mile mark as they run across this London landmark.
The area around Tower Hill is a good location to spot runners, however the London Marathon organisers warned that it will be extremely busy.
Organisers recommended walking up to Bank station to hop on the Docklands Light Railway and catch up with the race a few miles further along the route.
Miles 14 to 21
Participants will have just crossed the halfway point as they head out east towards Canary Wharf and the Isle of Dogs
Spots to avoid
Race organisers warned spectators to avoid busy areas such as Greenwich town centre and the Cutty Sark, as well as anywhere from mile 24 to the finish in the Mall.
Road closures will be in place throughout London and along the race route. Organisers have created an online map, which will update in real time tomorrow.
