Travelling to the Event

Public transport – We strongly recommend travelling to the event by public transport using the Docklands Light Railway from Stratford or from Canning Town where there are tube and over ground links to all major railway stations in London. Get off the DLR at Cyprus, walk over the bridge and into the University of East London (UEL) campus and follow the signs to the event.

By road

See the map above for location. Use Google maps or your SatNav to plot the route to 15 University Way, London E16 2RD.


London IWF has reserved a limited amount of parking at UEL at a rate of £10 per day. You can book this at the same time as buying you ticket. Please do not attempt to pay for parking on the day.

Disabled parking

There are a limited number of Disabled Parking spaces on the campus. These are free as long as you have a valid ticket for entry to the show. Please note that these spaces cannot be reserved or pre booked.

By Air

London City Airport (with dozens of European arrivals is just a bit of water and a runway away, so it is easy to get to the festival from here either by public transport or a taxi ride.

London City Airport is well-connected to the Tube network. The airport has its own stop on the Docklands Light Railway (DLR), which takes you to Tube interchange stations such as Canning Town, Stratford and Bank.

Connections from London Stansted are reasonably good also if you cannot fly into London City Airport.

Food and drink

Our waterside restaurant will be open from 10.00am serving a selection of light meals, sandwiches, hot and cold snacks and soft drinks throughout the day. You may of course like to bring your own.
