We recommend travelling by Jubilee tube line, changing to the Docklands Light Railway at Canning Town station. If you are travelling by car, ExCeL has ample parking spaces for over 4,000 cars.
For international visitors, London City Airport and Canary Wharf are also only 5 minutes away from ExCeL by taxi, and is also accessible by Docklands Light Railway.
This show is not designed only for car fanatics, dealers and manufacturers; it is also a great opportunity for those in the market to purchase a new car to explore many makes and models under one roof, and it is a great family day out. With some companies using the show as a worldwide launch-pad for their newest creation, you will be able to peruse the absolute latest car models from Bentley, BMW UK, Chevrolet UK, Chrysler Jeep, Daihatsu, Jaguar, Mercedes, Mitsubishi, Rolls Royce and along with the numerous other car manufacturers, exhibitors include wheel repair companies, insurance groups, shops for car accessories, the Formula 1 shop, car-care companies and garage door manufacturers.
The fantastic exhibition events will include a 'motor theatre', 'on-water entertainment' - where you see world-class stunts performed, 'driving school' is for children aged 14-16, 'Adventure Island' will see terrain roughed up by a variety of 4×4 shows and experiences, and 'Dock Rock' is a series of live concerts that will take place over the 10 days with acts such as A-HA, Van Morrison, UB40, Simple Minds and the Sugababes entertaining visitors daily.
