The Excel will be filled with cosplayers, gamers and anime enthusiasts as the MCM London Comic Con makes its return.

As well as taking part in e-sports competitions and exploring the Comic Village, visitors will be able to meet Batman v Superman star Jesse Eisenberg and Kunal Nayyar, who plays Raj in The Big Bang Theory.

To make sure you get to the event with plenty of time to spare, here is our handy travel guide for all your transport needs.
