I was first time in there. A lot of coffee shops, nice service, well organized (apart of cloakroom). Hope I'll go there again next year.

Travelled by London Underground and Docklands train, but there was a signal failure, so had to get on a bus, which then involved a LOT of steps (up & down) to get to the centre itself. Journey home slightly better. Had to 'detrain' at one point, only to be told the train was now OK and so we got on... More

It was very busy and impressive. A really well organised event but it must be a logistical headache. Lots of places to eat and drink. Good transport network to and from the venue. Lots of security about and lots of people. Well worth a visit.

Holds some very good exhibitions here. Bigger then I thought it would be. Load of food kiosks, with more bars and restaurants right outside. Easy to get to via public transport in a good location. Free wifi. Just a quick walk from the emirates air cable carts.

The Bridge restaurant is in a London exhibition centre. As such, the standard you can expect is very low. If you approach this restaurant with this attitude, you will not be disappointed. The bread selection seemed to have been waiting on a plate for a few hours. It was dry and uninspiring. My main course of spicy chicken was fine.... More

It was my first time in London and attended to the WTM. Location is convenient and all facilities are provided. It was a great experience and memorable one.

I went to the natural food exhibition on business. The space is well laid out and the opportunities for relaxation, meetings and networking are good. Good transport links and overall a positive experience.

First time I've been to Excel.... was amazed how easy it is to get to, how big it is too. My only gripe was it's a bit pricey & at one of the outlets the chicken strips were very dry. Needed mayonnaise!
