Located in the East of London, hire ExCel London for the UK’s largest flexible auditorium that is ideal to hire for an array of large scale events, including impressive exhibitions, gala dinner, large scale conferences, product launches and award ceremonies.

The Royal Victoria Dock site, on which ExCel London now sits was opened as a working dock in 1855. This large London venue played host to 7 Olympic and 6 Paralympic events in the London 2012 Olympic Games, making it an iconic landmark throughout history.

The ICC Auditorium at ExCel London has a standing capacity for up to 5000 guests and seated capacity for up to 4,500 delegates, ExCel London can be hired as one of the few large London venues. The option to use the fully adaptable seating to create bespoke configurations suitable for your event is ideal to tailor the space to work for your delegates. In addition to the ICC Auditorium, the event hall can also provide a bespoke auditorium that is flexible enough to accommodate from 1,000 – 20,000+ guests.

ExCel London also offers 17 flexible meetings rooms that can be hired individually or in conjunction with other event spaces. The meeting rooms offer private terraces, access to the Capital Lounge that is ideal for catering, breakout space or a business lounge, cloakroom and organisers office.
