It’s one of the biggest events in the comic calendar, but you’ll have to rely on more than just spidey-sense to find your way to the MCM Comic Con at the Excel. Here are just some of the ways you can get to London’s premier conference venue.
Take the tube
The Jubilee Line is the quickest route to the Excel . Alight at Canning Town and change onto a Beckton-bound DLR train , for the quick two-stop journey to Custom House .
Take a cable car
Have you been on it yet? The cable car connecting the O2 in Greenwich and the Excel opened in 2012, and is probably the most spectacular way to mark your arrival. You can even use your Oyster card.

The trusty DLR tends not to be less clogged than London’s other main arteries of public transport, and you never have to walk far in east London before you find a station. If you’re coming from central, hop on a train for Beckton at Tower Gateway and get off at Custom House . It takes about 15 minutes and you can take in some impressive urban scenery.
When all else fails, there’s always your trusty motor. The area is well-connected with the M25, M11, A406 and A13 . The centre offers on-site parking for 3,700 cars, while all parking near the site is pay and display, with the exception of the Royal Victoria multi-storey car park at the end of the site.
