Travel to London Athletics Grand Prix with National Express
National Express coaches will be heading to the London Athletics Grand Prix (5:30pm, 24th July & 2pm, 25 July) from locations all across the UK to help sports fans reach the sporting highlight of the summer.
Britain’s showpiece athletics event takes place at Crystal Palace over two days, where Olympic champions and the world’s elite are expected to battle it out as they look to place fear in their competitors ahead of the World Championships in Berlin the following month.
The event will offer the unique chance to see double Olympic champion Usain Bolt run the 100m - the first time he has raced the shorter distance at the London event.
Tickets to the event cost £15 and can be booked at www.uka.org.uk/uka-major-events/2009/aviva-london-grand-prix-2009. Coach tickets can be booked online at www.nationalexpress.com.
Once in London, why not make the most of the weekend by staying at the National Express partner hotel Ramada Jarvis and see what else is going on with the National Express 2-4-1 offers on London shows, restaurants and attractions. There’s no reason why a quick trip to Madame Tussauds can’t be thrown into the trip!

Here are some benefits of going by coach:
- No hidden costs and good value on the day - the best fares are always available the earlier you book, although on the coach, even if you turn up on the day, it is still excellent value.
- Free luggage space: There is plenty of luggage space on the coach, which is free of charge.
- Guaranteed seat: No need to reserve a seat, as you are guaranteed your own seat for the entire journey, there is no such thing as standing room on the coach
- Coach reduces congestion: One mile of traffic is equivalent to one coach on the road
- Cutting down on carbon: Coach travel is the most environmentally friendly public transport cleaner than the train, plane and automobile
