I've been to this venue on many occasions and each one was for a complete different event so seeing the transformation in the structure of the layout is amazing.
It's very easily accessible and can hold large number of people at ease without feeling congested.
The last event I went to was a boxing event and the view from all over the stadium was fantastic so it's a very well built and iconic place in London I reckon.

Xmas present for my husband
Feb 2020
My husband enjoyed it but although I’m a car lover it was definitely not for me! Thought it rather dull and full of nerdy anorak types. Thought it would be more glitzy like the motor show but I was so wrong !

Excellent exhibition venue

I took a group of travel and tourism students to this event, access was easy and the event was really useful for them to gather a range of information about different destinations.

Dated exhibition venue with poor refreshment facilities
Feb 2020
We visited for the London Classic Car Show. The venue is easy enough to get to via London overground, and within easy walking distance from the station. The refreshment facilities are very poor, with overpriced unimaginative food, and nowhere apart from a few scruffy tables to sit down. The car show itself was good in parts, with the car stories theatre the stand out feature. The tribute exhibitions were generally interesting, but the preponderance of exotic cars scheduled for auction took up far too much floor space. A greater focus on true "classic" cars would have made the show more enjoyable.

PETROL HEAD HAVEN
Feb 2020
Visited the Classic Car Show at Olympia. First time it was held here as per my understanding.

It has been a bucket wish list to buy a classic car and this show was like being in china shop. So many classic cars from most of the brands you would expect and a few unknown ones Chelsea??. for eg.

Noticeable were Mercs, Porches and Rover among the brands. Other yesteryear cars from Bristol Motors, Ford (Mustang was a treat), Audi's Minis....some racing cars and a few motorbikes. A number of American brands were present like Chevrolets and Corvettes..wow.

Missing were classic Peugeots, Capri's, Citroens and Datsuns.....

A number of peripheral services exhibited like paint sprayers, insurance, storage of cars, accessories, polishing products and surprisingly a company that converts classics to electric cars...and even high end furniture and furniture made from spare parts which was particularly astounding.

The highlight was the auction and if you had the wherewithal a good opportunity to buy. The auction had quite a good range of models and brands one could have bidden for.

Olympia as a venue is ideal...but getting there is tedious and my journey took almost 2 hours due to strikes, engineering works etc, so one had to be patient and dedicated enough to make it to the venue. Good choice of food places within Olympia though pricey, but outside there ain't much option. Good number of clean washroom facilities so that is an improvement for sure.

All in all a wonderful day out for an enthusiastic petrol head wanting a bit f the bygone era.

The restaurant food was awful
Feb 2020
I ordered Bombay rice which didn't taste like it had been anywhere near Bombay and lemon and herb chicken which resembled a chicken twizzler on a stick. It could have done with being hotter.

NOT a classic car show
Feb 2020
Last years London Classic Car Show was dreadful this years similar. Have they learned nothing? Nice super cars out of reach to most people and only a few really old classic cars. This was a corporate event and not for real enthusiasts. There was a distinct absence of stalls, no seating, limited food outlets and only one place to get a beer where the prices were eye watering. I will not be attending this event again it's rubbish.

Good exhibition venue
Feb 2020
Visited for the Destinations travel show. Halls full but enough room to get around a busy show. Always need more seating for the food court area - lots but still had to wait and fight for a table.
Car parking very expensive but with the new LEZ we won't be driving again.
