  • How to travel to ExCeL London

    By train or by underground

    All the major UK cities are connected to London by train and once you are in the capital city, the London Underground Jubilee Line is the quickest route towards ExCeL. At Canning Town Station alight and change onto a Beckton-bound DLR Train (Docklands Light Railway) to ExCeL.

    If you are travelling by DLR, please alight at Prince Regent (at the East Entrance of ExCeL) or Royal Victoria (at the West Entrance of ExCeL). It's a two minute walk from Prince Regent; and seven minutes from Royal Victoria. Follow the Travel Forward signs into the venue. The Docklands Light Railway is part of the London Underground Network and there are 12 trains an hour towards Beckton.

    ExCeL London is located in Zone 3.

    By car

    There is plenty of parking at ExCeL London with 3,070 parking spaces. Parking is a £20 flat tariff for up to 24 hours. Traveling by car in Central and East London can be subject to delays, particularly around rush hour so please plan ahead and leave plenty of time to make your journey.
