There are two DLR stations onsite, however please note that Custom House station will be closed. The second station is Prince Regent (at the East Entrance of ExCeL). It is a two minute walk under a covered walkway to the venue. Follow the in-cosmetics Global signs into the venue. The Docklands Light Railway is part of the London Underground Network and there are 12 trains an hour towards Beckton.

ExCeL London is located in Zone 3.
