Thomas Villeneuve, ceo of, said: “Our data shows how expensive renting a room in London can be. The areas surrounding the first miles on the marathon route are certainly more affordable than those along the home stretch near Westminster and Waterloo, but paying almost £700 a month to rent a room in the capital can still be a costly affair for some Londoners.”
