London is the perfect place to live for runners. Along with its legendary full-size marathon, marginally less strenuous half-marathons include the Royal Parks Run and the Capital Landmarks Half - new for 2017. What fitter way to get know London?

So which is London’s fittest neighbourhood? Well, The Wharf online paper has published tips for first time marathon runners from a number of local fitness experts. Dexters also notes that Canary Wharf will open for workout business 24/7 from mid-February, when Pure Gym extends its opening hours.

Room for a fitness regime is certainly a buyer priority that owners and developers across London cater to. Dexters have seen some spectacular basement gyms built beneath central London period properties, while new-builds like this fantastic development in Hammersmith offer on-site gym membership. Easy access to the Thames path and green spaces is often part of a buyer’s brief too - a need that new developments in Southwark's riverside neighbourhood easily meet, together with jogging distance properties near the Royal parks of Westminster and Kensington. 

It would seem that London is on the run and Dexters is no exception, pounding the streets every day to ensure buyers have the best choice of London property for sale. If you’re interested in buying a new property, contact our new homes team.
