The ExCeL Centre London prides itself on being the home of leading events in the capital city and is committed to hosting world-class events in its 100-acre, riverside site. Situated in Newham’s Custom House area in the East London Royal Docks, the ExCeL Centre is steeped in rich trade history dating back to the 14th century. Now, it’s one of the most modern and innovative venues in the city.
The Excel Exhibition Centre and convention space hosts businesses from all avenues such as design and architecture, beauty and fashion, science and technology, education, food and even animals and wildlife. It is perhaps most famous for hosting Comic Con London, a highly sought-after fan fiction and entertainment convention celebrating all things comic book and pop culture, which is now a global phenomenon both at ExCeL and its San Diego location. Upcoming ExCeL London events include Grand Designs Live, World Travel Market (WTM) London and The Cake & Bake Show, the UK’s biggest baking event.
The ExCeL London aims to make its event space one of the most comfortable and accessible venues in the city. With over 2,000 hotel rooms in walking distance, free WiFi within the venue and digital charging points dotted throughout, ExCeL really has thought of everything. A visit to ExCeL London doesn’t just mean popping in for an event; with 27 on-site eateries and 13 hotels surrounding the venue, you’re fully equipped to spend a leisurely weekend soaking up this diverse space on London’s River Thames. In order to facilitate so many international ExCeL events, the centre accommodates three on-site DLR stations, over 3,000 on-site parking spaces and is just a hop across the river from London City Airport.
Just around the river bend you can discover even more of South East London’s vibrant culture such as the renowned O2 Arena, featuring the Emirates Airline for easy accessibility from ExCeL London, as well as the Cutty Sark ship, National Maritime Museum and Royal Observatory further into Greenwich. Bordered also by the Isle of Dogs, Canary Wharf and Stratford’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, the ExCeL Centre really is at the heart of London’s most forward-thinking, urban venues.
