Great space to host large events and functions. As far as the excel goes plenty of places to buy food of many different sorts and not too pricey. Cake international itself was extremely exciting for my cake obsessed wife.

Great location for large shows, with a large food court offering something to suit everyones taste. Easy to get to by train and underground. Both events were extremely busy and not suitable for young children, due to the crowds and people pushing and shoving. These events are great if you want inspiration, but products, equipment and tools were somewhat expensive.... More

2nd year at ExceL London for the impressive PestEx 2 day event. No problem with driving in as the site has lots of parking. Be good if you could pay by the hour though not just £15 flat rate.

DC World was good although overtaken by its partner event Cloud Expo this year. I met old friends and suppliers and crucially met surprisingly many new ones. Continues to be a great event, can't wait till next year! The excel is good and had outside seating this year, well done! Plenty of refreshments in the foyer area. Long way to... More

Good venue and easy to get to, even from the west. Parking was fine but there was a little bit of a queue to get in. Coffee bar inside wasn't brilliant (didn't know how to make the mocha they advertised!) but otherwise fine. The show itself was good with plenty on offer and well laid out.

You would expect nothing less from this venue and it deserves its accolade as the premier venue in London for shows/exhibitions - a huge footprint that offers the centre itself, various hotels, car parking and space galore. The shows are run very professionally and the centre caters for the thousands of visitors with a variety of food/drink options. All are... More

Nice setup of the exhibition centre, spacious. Two days was too much, could have done it in one day. But overall perfect location.

First time here for the London Super comic Con and I had a great time. Easy parking, easy access, plenty of food outlets and staff were great. Super Comic Con was all worth a visit too. Would like to see more exhibitions here.

I've been here quite a few times for different shows. It's easy to find from M25, loads and loads of parking £15 a day right underneath. Food outlets and loads of places to sit and eat, found the price of food and drink ok to be honest and such a choice, much better venue than NEC.

This is a fantastic Exhibition Centre, with plenty of car parking. You wont starve as there are many places to eat with in the main corridor. It's a very clean and modern building offering all kinds of food, depending on your taste. The only down side is getting there, its a pain to say the least!!
