Part 12 - Oxford Circus to Baker Street via Regent's Park - (3.1 Km) - Across London Visual Marathon
Updated: Mar 8
This 3.1 Km section of the Across London Visual Marathon takes you from Oxford Circus to Baker Street through Regent's Park.
Part 12 starts at Oxford Circus Station and heads north up Regents Street past the BBC and The Langham Hotel at Portland Place before entering the southeast entrance into Regent's Park. The route takes you on a tour around the Avenue Gardens and the Queen mary Gardens before exiting on the western side by Baker Street Station.
The best time to do this run is first thing in the morning - and at the weekend when it is quieter. At other times, the areas around Oxford Circus and Baker Street can be crowded.
The Location of Part 12
As the map shows, this is part 12 of the 14 parts of the Across London Visual Marathon, which starts at the Thames Barrier (part 1) and ends at Hyde Park Corner in the West End of London in part 14. This shows the last nine parts in three sections, starting at the Tower of London.
This is a flexible marathon designed to let you choose which parts you want to do and when, so you can do as little or as much as you want at any one time. These photorun blogs are more about the place than the pace, where creative fun is more important than a fast run.
