Alternative routes to EAG Expo if the tube strike goes ahead

24 February 2022

On 1st & 3rd March there are likely to be no London Underground services due to strike action, but please don’t worry, EAG Expo is still going ahead and DLR services will not be affected. There are many transport options available to ExCeL London that don’t involve taking the tube and here are some suggested routes:

DLR: Custom House and Prince Regent DLR stations are directly connected to the venue. All trains towards Beckton and Gallions Reach stop at Custom House and Prince Regent stations. Alight at Custom House for the west entrance and Prince Regent for the east entrance and ICC London.

c2c: If travelling by the c2c train network from Essex, alight at Limehouse station where you can connect with the DLR service towards Beckton. Alight at Custom House for the west entrance and Prince Regent for the east entrance and ICC London.

Southeastern: If travelling by the Southeastern train network, alight at Cannon Street station which is a short 5-min walk to Bank station where you can connect with the DLR service towards Lewisham or Woolwich Arsenal. Change at Limehouse station where you can connect with the DLR service towards Beckton. Alight at Custom House for the west entrance and Prince Regent for the east entrance and ICC London.

Thameslink: If travelling by the Thameslink train network, alight at City Thameslink station, which is a 15-min walk to Bank station where you can connect with the DLR service towards Lewisham or Woolwich Arsenal. Change at Limehouse station where you can connect with the DLR service towards Beckton. Alight at Custom House for the west entrance and Prince Regent for the east entrance and ICC London.

Emirates Air Line Cable Car: The Emirates Air Line cable car connects North Greenwich to Royal Victoria a few minutes’ walk from the venue. Emirates Air Line is fully accessible for wheelchairs and pushchairs. It offers step-free access and space for bicycles in each cabin. Cabins arrive every 30 seconds and flights are approximately 10 minutes each way – except during peak commute times when the flight duration is quicker.

Uber Boat: the fastest and most frequent boat fleet on the river has departures from major London piers every 20 minutes. The route is serviced by Uber Boat by Thames Clippers. When travelling to ExCeL London, alight at the Royal Wharf Pier. It takes just over 20 minutes to walk through Britannia Village and over the Royal Victoria Dock footbridge to ExCeL’s west entrance.

Taxi: if you are travelling by taxi, instruct your driver to use postcode E16 1XL for the west entrance drop-off point. The entrance is accessed via stairs or a ramp.

Car: if you are travelling by car, you can use the postcode E16 1XL. You can also use the what3words app or go to the website, and enter the three-word address for the venue car park: ///expect.likes.eager. Parking is available on a first come, first served basis, using pay and display. Orange car park is located directly under the venue and costs £20 for 24-hours across all car parks. Please note the car parks only permit vehicles up to a maximum of 1.9 metres height. Click here for more information about parking at ExCeL.

We look forward to welcoming you to EAG Expo 2022!
