Air travel to Loncon 3

Officially, there are seven London airports, some of which are more in London than others. More information is set out on this page.

Some attendees from outside the UK might find it more convenient to fly into and/or out of one of the UK’s other international airports and add on the journey to London (by air, train or road) to your general travel plans; if so, you might find the “Getting Around the UK” section useful too.

ExCeL is between 75 and 90 minutes from London Heathrow and London Gatwick airports by public transport (with changes), but it’s only about a mile from London City Airport.

For more information on London City airport, and travel from there to ExCeL, see the London airports page.

You may wish to check out the current guidance on hand luggage restrictions at UK airports and especially the section on electronic devices and electrical items. Seasoned travellers may wish to note that there have been some recent changes.
