  • I discovered the Olympia on the occasion of the salon of the license (B.L.E.) which was held in mid-October. The building has been re-arranged to accommodate exhibitions and other ephemeral events and it's a very good idea. Spacious, bright, easy access, this place is ideal for and very well placed.

  • Great venue, loads of room to move around, easy place to get to by bus, rail or tube (about 10 min walk from tube). I liked having the upstairs bit where you could watch stuff from above. Glad the eve...  read more »

  • A very nice exhibition centre located in London's beautiful Kensington area. The centre itself is fairly large and can put on a wide variety of events. It has smaller even space upstairs too meaning that multiple events can be put on at the same time. If you are going on the last day of a show be prepared for a lot of traffic as all the vans and trucks that arrive for the derig of the show will all be parked along the road outside and will fill up all overflow car parks. This is due to there not being much room around the centre for traffic as it is slap bang in the middle of the city. (There is a multistory carpark attached, around the back of the building for just cars to park in so this shouldnt prevent you from getting a space). There are hotels all around the centre so if you are travelling from far away you can book hotels that don't require the use of a taxi to get to. The location is also great if you want to sight see as Kensington Palace and Hyde Park is just a 10 minute walk down the road (literally on the same road so you can't get lost), and multiple underground stations are in close proximity so you can get around the city easily. Overall this is one of the best exhibition centres in London and the only one of its size on this side of London now that the Earls Court centre down the road has been demolished.
  • Hyper Japan was amazing, space inside was just right, not to cramped and the viewing gallery offered excellent views of the whole arena so you never felt like you were missing out on the action
  • Went to the Ideal Home Show. It is the same as it always was at Earls Court. Busy and Interesting. I don't like some of the exhibits with pestering high pressure selling. Not cool. The access by train/tube is a little awkward, so best check your routes before you go. Other than that good venue.
  • Great, enjoyed cosplaying at HyperJapan! Loved the food and the people!
  • Generally good wheelchair accessibility, though some of it depends on the exhibition that you're visiting. Lifts are rather slow though.
