Hi guys,


Does anyone have any first hand experience parking at or near eXcel arena whilst registering for VLM?


I know they cater well for cars during the London Tri (albeit it at £15+ a pop) but it’s not given a mention in the recent Marathon magazine and since it’s far more convenient for me to pop into that corner of London by car before heading west to lay my head tomorrow, I’m keen to establish if it’s actually possible?

Ive driven there on a Saturday a couple of times and there seemed plenty of space in the underground carpark.  Given that registration is spread over a few days and a lot of people seem to take the DLR id imagine it wont be to bad.

Though sods law dictates that wont be the case!

I took the car up yesterday and parking's fine Robbie,  (getting through the Blackwall tunnel was a different matter though!

In addition to the underground carpark,   there's a multistorey as well 2 mins walk from Excel it's a £5 for 2 hrs parking,  so there should be plenty of space.

PRW - I used to live just on the other side of the docklands and there was always a spare bit of parking around there, its free as there are no resident permits needed or anything. Head to West Silvertown station and pull in to the estate opposite that... it's 5 minutes walk over the footbridge to get to Excel

I'll be heading this evening for an hour, just to soak up the atmosphere more than anything and feel even more gutted I can't run:
