Here are some alternative routes to help you on your way:
For passengers using the Jubilee Line, please alight at Canning Town and take the direct five minute rail replacement bus service to Custom House for ExCeL, which should take the same amount of time as the usual DLR service. In addition, the Docklands Light Railway is running a good service from Bank and Tower Gateway directly to Canning Town.
Alternatively, passengers can use the Central Line to Stratford and board a DLR service to Canning Town, changing for the rail replacement bus service.
If you would like to experience something a bit different, you can alight at North Greenwich on the Jubilee Line and board the Emirates Air Line cable car direct to ExCeL London instead.
We look forward to seeing you at Bett 2013 this Saturday!
