One of the city’s biggest event spaces, ExCeL London hosts a wide variety of conventions, expos and trade shows. Whether it’s cars, comics or boats, if you’re looking for a specialist show, there’s a good chance it’ll be here.

Getting to ExCeL London

Situated along the river on the Royal Victoria Dock, the ExCeL isn’t in what you’d usually think of as central London. Despite the lack of nearby tourist destinations though, it’s surprisingly easy to reach using public transport. Just hop on any Beckton bound DLR train and you’ll find it. If you’re coming from the City Centre, your best be might be getting the Jubilee line from Canning Town then connecting to the DLR, which will take around 30 minutes. Depending on the event, your nearest station may be Prince Regent or Custom House—so be sure to check ahead.
