London's New Elizabeth Line makes it even easier to get to London Vet Show
The Elizabeth Line opens on 24th May 2022. This will make getting to London Vet Show even easier by going from ExCeL to Central London in 12mins, and door to door from Heathrow in 43 minutes. Initially 12 trains will run per hour, with a capacity of 1,500 capacity per train!
The high-speed Elizabeth line – which now becomes part of the existing TFL network – stretches more than 60 miles from Reading and Heathrow in the west to Shenfield and Abbey Wood in the east, with 24 trains running per hour once fully operational. Travel times to ExCeL London will be reduced by up to two thirds, with the resulting time saved expected to lead to a significant uplift in networking and trade.
CEO of ExCeL Jeremy Rees commented:
“In short, the Elizabeth line will give people more of that most precious of commodities – time – allowing them increased opportunities to network, learn and of course trade – just as we saw pre-pandemic when some £165 billion was transacted per year at UK events.
ExCeL is now arguably the world’s most connected event venue with two underground lines, one mainline station, an airport, road links, bus services, water taxis and even a cable car all within earshot.”

Since reopening last summer, ExCeL has welcomed more than 1.5 million visitors to the venue and is set to host 350 events this year.
