As The London Bridal Show creeps up on us it is time to start thinking about travel arrangements and how best to get there. Here’s an easy run-down on the best routes.
The venue is just a stone’s throw from Kensington (Olympia) station. Kensington (Olympia) is on the London overground network and is one stop from Shepherd’s Bush on the central line. Or if you are travelling on the district line then head to West Brompton.
Olympia is within easy reach of several of the capital’s airports. It is around 30 minutes from London Heathrow via the Heathrow Express followed by a short taxi or tube ride. Or if you fly into London Gatwick you can be at the venue in around an hour using the Gatwick Express and a taxi or Victoria Line. Meanwhile it takes just over an hour to get from London City Airport.
Nestled in the heart of the capital, Olympia couldn’t be easier to get to. In fact, the exhibition centre is the only venue in London with a dedicated rail station of its own. Get ahead by booking online today for the best routes and deals on www.thetrainline.com
