Guide: getting there

< a publication to explain some aspects of the Fiesta

THERE ARE SEVERAL WAYS those attending DSEi can get in: road, rail, Docklands light railway and the London City Airport.

TUBE: Unlikely, as they'd have to walk past at least the CAAT protestors, although we guess most would catch a cab for the 10 minute walk. Jubilee line, Canning Town station.

DOCKLANDS LIGHT RAILWAY: Royal Victoria, Customs House and Prince Regent stations on the Becton line of DLR all serve Excel. Customs House is closest, and has a bridge and walkway leading directly to the main entrance to the building.

RAIL: Canning Town, Customs House and City Airport are all on the Silverlink rail line. The line skirts the centre of London, from Richmond, through Hampstead, Camden, Hackney, Stratford to North Woolwich.

ROAD: There are two road entrances to Excel, at the east and west sides. The barriers formed by the rail lines and the dock make it impossible for them to create temporary entrances elsewhere in event of the two road­ ways being blocked.

Fiesta guide index LONDON CITY AIRPORT: Basically a business airport, right next door to Excel. There is road access to Excel, via Connaught Bridge, but it only leads to the east entrance.
