Everyone was very friendly and there were a lot of very affordable items/ collectables / art prints etc to interest all ages. My kids (7, 11 and 12 ) had a great time. Did have to pay attention to keeping them corralled as it did get quite crowded but there were well plenty of maintained toilets available when they demanded... More

Had an amazing time at Comic Con at this convention centre. It was really well located and easy to get to. Stayed a hotel nearby but getting in and out of the centre everyday was really easy considering there was 120,000 people there for the weekend. Food stands were perfect for a quick bite to eat and the upstairs rooms... More

Most of the food outlets were running out of food by lunch time on the first day. They were also understaffed. Security staff were rude and incompetent. They really had no clue what they were doing. Management were no better than the security staff. My 12 year old could do a better job. Total bunch of incompetent morons. They really... More

Spent the last weekend strolling around the ExCeL centre for Minecraft's 2015 convention. There are plenty of choice for food and drink around the venue, and toilets were always easily accessible. The A/C was also perfect, with 10,000 people walking around the whole building stayed nice and cool.

Recently attended Minecon at Excel and found the on site facilities to be excellent. Great choice of places to get something to eat and drink, prices on a par with usual London prices. Very useful Left luggage at £1 per item.

We attended Minecon. All the staff were very professional and helpful at all times during the 48 event. Security was excellent leaving with the feeling that all was safe despite the challenges of dealing with 10k people in a confined space
