Formula E is set to bring electric racing back to the UK, with a unique track winding its way through the Royal Docks and ExCeL London in summer 2022 – for the penultimate double-header weekend of the 2021/2022 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship.
The Jubilee Line and the DLR are the quickest routes to ExCeL London. Alight at Canning Town on the Jubilee Line and change onto a Beckton-bound DLR train for the quick two-stop journey to ExCeL: Custom House for ExCeL will take you to the main entrance of the venue (West entrance).
The Docklands Light Railway (known as the DLR) is part of the London Underground network. Two of the stations, Custom House and Prince Regent, are on our campus. Trains pull up at a covered walkway leaving visitors with less than a two minutes’ walk to the respective entrances. Please note that during the event weekend, additional shuttle trains will be in operation between Canning Town and Prince Regent to ensure a pleasant journey for spectators.
Please note: Tube and national rail strikes have been announced for the weekend of the 30th July. We advise checking and planning your route prior to departure. If you are unable to use public transport due to these disruptions, you can find some local car parking facilities offsite. The nearest carparks are at the O2 and Westfield.
