Excel is a good place for fair, each year I’m joining WTM. Best option is flying in to LCY and use a hotel at the area or close to Thames. Using the ferry is great in the morning, very comfortable.

I went here with my 3 children, the parking is very expensive, a flat rate of £20 per day, and if you add the price of the tickets, it becomes an expensive day out. The event was a bit quite to what I was expecting,...More

Hi, Get on the Jubilee Line and change onto a Beckton-bound DLR train - Get off at Custom House for ExCeL (for the west entrance) or Prince Regent for ExCeL (for the east entrance). DLR is overground train. Hope this helps!
