Transport Links

ExCeL has good transport links with central London, and London itself is one of the best connected cities in the world.
 

By Air
London City Airport is less than a mile from ExCeL, and has short-haul services to many European destinations, as well as a single British Airways business class flight to New York JFK. London's main international airports are Heathrow and Gatwick, which are respectively twenty miles west and thirty miles south from ExCeL. London is also served by Stansted and Luton airports.
 
By Train
ExCeL is on the Docklands Light Railway system, with direct services to Bank and Tower Gateway stations in the City (London's main business district), and easy access to the very extensive London Underground system by changing trains at Canning Town for the Jubilee Line and also (by 2014) West Ham for the District or Hammersmith & City Lines or Stratford for the Central or Jubilee Lines.
Train services to or from the rest of the UK are via the main London terminals, and then the Underground and Docklands Light Railway. It is expected that by 2014 some Eurostar international train services will call at Stratford International, which will be a short trip from ExCeL on the Docklands Light Railway. 
 
By Bus
ExCeL's bus services will mostly be of interest to locals only, but there is a night bus service from Trafalgar Square which operates every half an hour throughout the night, when the Underground and Docklands Light Railway are closed.
 
By Car
ExCeL has plenty of on-site parking, and good links via the A13 to the east and the M25. We can't really recommend driving to ExCeL from the west, through central London. We have not yet negotiated parking costs for the convention.
