Public Transport

Many roads are closed on race day, so the best way to get around is using the London Underground, Southeastern and Docklands Light Railway (DLR), who lay on extra services on race day. Remember, the trains will be busy all day – expect it to be like rush hour. You’ll probably have to queue at some stations and the tube lines may be forced to shut temporarily throughout the day to help ease the crowds.
