Travel and Tourism


This section of the website provides information on travelling to ExCeL for Loncon 3, whether you’re a local coming for the day or you’re travelling to the UK from one of the 62 (and counting) countries from which our members are drawn.

We don’t want to reinvent the wheel, and there are some very good travel websites available – so in the following pages we’ll link to those wherever relevant. But these pages will also provide some more specific information that you might find useful in both arranging your travel to ExCeL and the nearby hotels, and in planning what to do before and after the convention.

This page provides details on getting to the ExCeL site. It includes links to the various travel advisory websites.

For those arriving by air, we have a guide to the several London airports together with suggestions for onward travel to ExCeL itself.

We also have some information about getting around London and the UK more generally.

For those making longer trips, there are also links for tourism and an ever-growing list of other science fiction and fantasy-related events in the British Isles during August and early September.

There are other links in the sidebar.

Many thanks to Peter Tyers for his initial work and research to help with this.
