Official Star Wars Celebration 2023 Hotels & Travel

Want to be close to the action? We’ve partnered with our friends at HotelMap to help you find some of the best deals on accommodation around ExCeL London.

London Underground & DLR

If you’re heading to ExCeL via DLR, get off at Custom House station and follow our signage. If in doubt, ask a member of staff or a crew member to help you.

For access to Star Wars Celebration Europe as a pedestrian from hotels on the east side, we recommend using the DLR for just one stop – boarding at Prince Regent Station to alight at Custom house.

What is the DLR?

The Docklands Light Railway (known as the DLR) is part of the London Underground network and Custom House is less than a two minute walk to the entrance of ExCeL. Trains towards Beckton/Gallions Reach stop at Custom House.

There is also a third station, Royal Victoria, which is a ten minute walk from the west end of the venue for those looking to avoid congestion. 

The Jubilee Line and the DLR are typically the quickest routes to ExCeL. 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 the west entrance).

What about Crossrail?

Take a look at the Elizabeth line schedule! This is another great way to get over to the ExCeL. We always recommend attendees to keep a close eye on crossrail updates and plan to have a back-up route in case of disruptions. 

Driving

If you’re arriving via the M11, the North Circular (A406) or the A13, as you get closer to ExCeL you’ll pick up signs for Royal Docks, City Airport and ExCeL London. 

If you’re using satellite navigation please enter the postcodes E16 1XL if you are traveling from the west to ExCeL from Blackwall Tunnel, Limehouse Link, A12 or central London – or E16 1FR if you are traveling from the east to ExCeL from the M11, A13 or into London from the east. 

Make sure to head towards the west entrance. If you are trying to access Star Wars Celebration as a pedestrian from hotels based on the east side, we recommend using the DLR for just one stop to hop from Prince Regent Station to Custom house.

Disabled Parking Bays

There are 155 bays suitable for disabled drivers on-site across ExCeL's car parks. These are wide bays with minimum dimensions of 5.9m by 3.6m. Access to the building from these bays is along walkways with a gradient of no more than 1:15 and via flat entrance lifts with automatic doors.

All public entrances allow for access by wheelchair via low gradient ramps and an automatic door. Once inside the venue, all floors are level, offering unobstructed access.

Please note Star Wars Celebration Europe does not control pricing or availability for ExCeL parking.
