Travelling to Ecobuild

Ecobuild takes place at London’s ExCeL - an exhibitions and international convention centre in the London Borough of Newham. It is located on a 100-acre site on the northern quay of the Royal Victoria Dock in London Docklands, between Canary Wharf and London City Airport.

London is the home of the Queen's official residence at Buckingham Palace and the Houses of Parliament, historic home of the UK government, as well as one of Europe's tallest and newest buildings, The Shard. Architectural beauty is on every corner of London.
