Information about parking near ExCeL
ExCeL London is an events and conference centre, located just off Victoria Dock Road, in the East London Borough of Newham. It is best found via the A1020 extension of the North Circular Road.
On-street parking near the exhibition centre can be difficult, both due to its location and because of stringent parking restrictions. Off-street parking is a viable option, with thousands of spaces available in on-site and nearby car parks. However, with good public transport links for the venue, arriving via the Docklands Light Railway should at least be considered.
JustPark provides information on a multitude of parking options nearby, many of which are reservable – including spaces on-street and off-street, from driveways to car parks.
ExCeL London is located within a Residential Parking Zone in the London Borough of Newham. Parking on-street nearby is difficult due to the location of the centre on the London Docklands with a general lack of roads and spaces. On-street parking around ExCeL London is limited to either pay-and-display or for resident permit holders only, with the majority the latter. Pay-and-display spaces usually have a maximum limit ranging from 1-4 hours, which will be specified on location. Parking restrictions apply from 8am-8.30pm, Monday-Saturday, but it is recommended to utilise the off-street options afforded to you when you visit.

ExCeL London offer thousands of spaces for visitors to the centre. Their Orange car park is located under the venue and is accessible from Victoria Dock Road. This car park offers quite an expensive daily fare but is undoubtedly the most conveniently located off-street option. It is open 24 hours-a-day, Monday-Sunday.
Alternatively, Royal Victoria multi-storey car park (Victoria Dock Road, E16 1AL) is around a 5 minute walk away from the Western entrance to ExCeL. This car park offers a slightly cheaper daily rate, but with less spaces than the on-site location. Also operating 24 hours-a-day, Monday-Sunday, this does serve as a viable alternative.
JustPark also has a big choice of reservable off-street parking near ExCel – in both public car parks and on private land/driveways. You can browse these options and book a guaranteed space via our website or app.
