The main entrance for EAU17 is the East entrance.

Airplane
London is one of the most accessible cities in Europe, with 5 international airports offering direct flights to 348 destinations. London Heathrow is the largest, whilst London City airport puts you on the doorstep of east London and ExCeL conference centre. London Gatwick is located to the south of the city, and London Luton and Stansted offer flights by many low-cost carriers. We recommend using London City Airport if you can as it is less than a mile from the venue. From London City Airport, it takes just 5 minutes by taxi or 15 minutes by DLR (Docklands Light Railway) to get to ExCeL.

By train
Express trains link Heathrow and Gatwick airports to London city centre in less than 30 minutes, with four trains running every hour. Eurostar operates 22 trains a day from Paris, bringing visitors into central London in just over two hours, while 11 trains a day link the city to Brussels in less than two hours.

Travel in London

Public Transport
London has one of the largest urban transport networks in the world. The quickest way to get around is on the underground system known as the Tube. With 11 colour-coded lines and 270 stations, it reaches every corner of the city, whilst the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) is the quickest way to reach ExCeL and venues in east London. The Jubilee Line and the DLR are the quickest routes to ExCeL London. Alight at Canning Town on the Jubilee Line and change onto a Beckton-bound DLR train for the quick two-stop journey to ExCeL: Prince Regent for ExCeL (for the East entrance)

Oyster smartcards, travel cards and tickets can be purchased at stations or online and are accepted on the tube network, DLR trains and buses. Tube trains generally run between 5am and midnight, Monday to Saturday, with reduced operating hours on Sunday. Timetables depend on the station and the line, so it’s worth checking the Transport for London website.

Taxis
More than 20,000 licenses black cabs can be hailed on the street, for metered fares, or pre-booked at fixed rates.

Thames Clippers
Thames Clipper catamarans leave every 20 minutes from piers on the doorstep of the London Eye, Tower Bridge, Greenwich and the O2 arena.

Cable Car
The Emirates Air Line is London’s first cable car and offers a five-minute ‘flight’ over the Thames, rising to a height of 90m. It links ExCeL conference centre to one of the world’s most popular entertainment venues, the O2, by offering spectacular views over London.
