    Motorshow moving to London

    The NEC has lost the tender for the motorshow - it will now be hosted at ExCel in London....

    Maybe now I might actually get to go to one!

    It used to be at Earls Court back in the mists of time, I had a good day out there as a 10 year old car nut. My dad lives about 5 minutes from ExCeL, and I can get there on the DLR pretty easily I think.

    Great, now we have to fight London traffic/street planning and pay a congestion charge?

    To be fair I don't know what the access to ExCel is like, but you can't beat the NEC for ease of access and located nearly in the middle of the country.

    I thought the Motorshow had always been at the NEC, wasn't it the Motorfair at Earls Court?

    Pretty sure it was the motor show. I can remember being disappointed when it relocated to the NEC.

    ExCeL is in Docklands near City Airport, outside the congestion charge zone. Should be pretty easy to get to from the M11, and AFAIK there's plenty of parking round there. I accidentally drove into it on Sunday while trying to drive home from my Dad's. It's lucky they Shellgripped the road, there's a wicked corner going into the roundabout there which nearly caught me out
