Getting here — well that couldn’t be simpler


Driving to ExCeL London

ExCeL London has recently invested in improvements to the venue’s car park.  New access control measures along with a pre-booking system means spaces can be booked prior to arriving on site. The new system operates using Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) technology. Please be advised that pre-booking is only available for events from Friday 1st December 2023



To pre-book your parking space please visit the on-line booking platform here. Please select the date(s) you would like to park which should then display the event you are planning to attend. Select the type of space you need  and complete the form to secure your spot. Pre-booking is the only way to guarantee your parking at the venue. It is recommended you book to avoid disappointment should the car park be full on arrival. 


There are clearly marked disabled parking bays in the Venue's orange car park. Blue badge holders can park in designated disabled parking bays. There is a fine of £80 for parking in a disabled bay without displaying a valid disabled badge.


Our motorcycle parking is free and cannot be pre-booked. Upon entering the car park (for directions, please use what3words /// or E16 1FR), please follow one-way system as it will take you to upper level to designated motorcycle bays in Zone 2.


If you have not pre-booked parking, it may still be possible to arrive and park on the day. If you choose this method, then prior to exit you will need to validate your vehicle at the payment machines within the car park lobbies. This can be done in one of two ways. Firstly, inputting your vehicle registration into the payment machines located in the car park lorries and paying (card only) when the price is displayed. Secondly, you can use your mobile device to scan the QR codes located in the car park lobbies and within the car park. These QR codes link you to mobile payment page, where your registration can be inputted and parking paid for, enabling your exit.

Please note the Venue car park only permits vehicles up to a maximum of 1.9 metres height in the majority of locations. There are limited overheight vehicle spaces available, for vehicles up to 2.9m. A total of 221 spaces are available. Please be advised that over height parking can be booked here via our car parking platform to avoid any disappointment on the day.  


If you’re using satellite navigation please enter the postcode E16 1FR for the entrance to the car park.
You can also use the what3words app or go to the website, and enter the three word address /// for the car park entrance. For more information on what3words, please click here.
