The Docklands Light Railway (known as the DLR) is part of the London Underground network. Two of the stations, Custom House and Prince Regent, are on our campus on the Beckton/Gallions Reach branch. Trains pull up at a covered walkway leaving visitors with less than a two minutes’ walk to the entrance. The closest station to the Public Sector Solutions Expo is Custom House Station, though if you require step-free access, you will need to alight at Prince Regent Station
The Jubilee Line and the DLR are the quickest routes to ExCeL London. Alight at Canning Town on the Jubilee Line and change onto a Beckton-bound DLR train for the quick two-stop journey to ExCeL: Custom House for ExCeL. If you require step-free access, you will need to alight at Prince Regent Station, which is the next stop after Custom House.
The DLR and Jubilee Line can be connected from multiple Overground lines such as Stratford, Canada Water, and Shadwell. It’s also possible to join the Overground and travel to ExCeL London from Euston station.
Rail services in the UK are run by a set of private train operating companies. Your point of departure will determine the best service to take and at what station your train will arrive into London.
