I recently attended here for the annual event held here for the first time this year having previously been held at Ally Pally tge previous 2 years and various round London prior!

Visited the centre for the GP London and though the GP was run excellently I found the food to be staggeringly expensive. A bottle of water can put you back £1.40 and sandwiches are over £3 in places.

But nevertheless we were very impressed with the Excel centre itself. A good range of facilities plus extra's such as efficient and green use of energy (smart escalators for example). I would definitely recommend it for... More

The biggest venue I have ever been in. You'd be hard pushed to say it wasy cosy. It most closely resembles a string of airline hangars held together by a food markt, but it does the job for really big events. But it's not as charming, as for instance Ally Pally. And it's quite a bit of a trip to... More

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
