ExCeL London is situated near London City Airport in east London’s Royal Victoria Dock.
The Docklands Light Rail network provides easy access to the venue from both the Olympic Park and central London from Custom House and Prince Regent stations. There are also excellent road links.
There is no construction needed to create ExCeL’s five arenas. Test events will be held in the year before London 2012 to ensure the venue will be ready to stage the Games.

After the Games, ExCeL London will revert to its role as one of Europe’s largest and most versatile exhibition spaces.
