London Loop is a race course in Mario Kart Tour. It is named after and inspired by London, England, and makes its debut in the city’s namesake tour, the London Tour. Currently, London Loop has three routes, tied with Paris Promenade, Los Angeles Laps, Berlin Byways, and Sydney Sprint, named London Loop, London Loop 2, and London Loop 3, each with its own R, T, and R/T variant. The second route made its debut in the Baby Rosalina Tour, due to Baby Rosalina (Detective)'s outfit, which is a reference to Sherlock Holmes, a fictional resident of London, while the third route debuted in the 2021 Halloween Tour.

The first route of this course is a favorite of Red Koopa (Freerunning), Daisy (Holiday Cheer), Luigi (Classic), Peach (Wedding), and Dixie Kong. The second route is a favorite of Baby Rosalina (Detective), Mario (SNES), Mario (Racing), Mario (Golf), King Boo (Gold), Kamek, Waluigi (Vampire), Dr. Bowser, and the Donkey Kong and Wario Mii Racing Suits. The third route is a favorite of Birdo (Black), Daisy (Holiday Cheer), Fire Rosalina, Mario (Baseball), Luigi (Golf), Dr. Mario, Cat Mario, Waluigi (Vampire), and the Gold Mii Racing Suit.

London Loop[edit]

The course begins to the right of Big Ben, followed by a gradual right next to a double-decker bus. The road then weaves its way around Nelson's Column, then makes another gradual right through Charing Cross and a part of Trafalgar Square before making a sharp left at St Paul's Cathedral. The player then reaches Leadenhall Market, which they exit after making a single slight right. After another sharp right with a Chain Chomp in a green space in front of the Tower of London, the player crosses Tower Bridge, then takes another sharp right to bypass City Hall and The Shard with the London Eye in the background. After a left sigmoid curve, the player returns to the finish line.

The course also appears as London Loop R (reverse), London Loop T (with ramps), and London Loop R/T (reverse and with ramps).

London Loop 2[edit]

The course begins to the right of the Big Ben on Westminster Bridge. Players take a slight right to enter the green space in front of Buckingham Palace, a few Chain Chomps are located in the green space, one in the very center, and one outside the palace. Racers drive down a long street shortly afterwards, driving past the British Museum, eventually leading to a ramp with The Shard visible in the far background. Racers take a right to Trafalgar Square, before eventually passing the London Eye. A U-bend to the right is taken, which leads racers back on to Westminster Bridge, before arriving at the finish line.

The course also appears as London Loop 2R (reverse), London Loop 2T (with ramps), and London Loop 2R/T (reverse and with ramps).

London Loop 3[edit]

The course starts on the Westminster Bridge but faces away from Big Ben, the opposite direction of London Loop and London Loop 2. Racers take a left turn and travel past the London Eye, before taking a right by the River Thames to bypass The Walkie-Talkie and the City Hall. Two boats can be seen floating on the river. Shortly after, the racers must take a U-bend to the left to cross Tower Bridge. A wide bend to the left around the green space of the Tower of London follows, with a Chain Chomp in the center. Players drive back to The Walkie-Talkie before taking a right to access a path besides the River Thames. After driving below a bridge, the player takes one last left to reach the finishing line, passing Big Ben.

The course also appears as London Loop 3R (reverse), London Loop 3T (with ramps), and London Loop 3R/T (reverse and with ramps).
