The Tour of Britain is taking place on Sunday 11 September. Road
closures will be in place in central London from 03:00 until 23:00, in
particular in the Whitehall and Westminster areas, including Regent

Tube and rail will be the best way to get around central London on the
day, although stations close to the route will be busier than usual.
Buses in and around the event area will be diverted or will stop short
of their normal destination. A number of Santander Cycles docking
stations will also be out of service.

If you like bicycle races this one could be fun.

If you don't like bicycle races, be very careful. If you try to run across the street where the race is you may be very surprised by jut how fast they go on the flat roads of London.

It's not just London. The Tour of Britain is in Bristol on Saturday, and many of the major roads are closed. The Clifton suspension bridge is part of the route. We live quite close to the start and finish point, and don't know yet how we are going to be able to leave home and get south of Bristol.
