Stratford, The City, London Bridge, Tower of London and Central London are all just 20-25 minutes away. Stroll along the dock and fly the Emirates Airline to ‘The O2’.

The Excel Centre is in London Docklands which is to the east of the City whilst Heathrow is to the west so the journey is long but actually easy. The most economical was would be by the Piccadilly l line underground service changing at Hammersmith on to the District Line to Tower Hill. A short walk will take you to the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) which will then take you to a station very close to the hotel. Alternatively you could take the Heathrow Express to Paddington and then the District or Circle line underground to Tower Hill. You could change at Liverpool |Street on to the Central line to Stratford which is the beginning of one branch of the DLR which will take you to Docklands. Enjoy and remember never be afraid to ask as we "locals" are friendly!
