BLE 2012 takes place from October 16th to 18th at London’s Olympia – but where is it?

The address is as follows:

Hammersmith Road,
West Kensington, 
London,
W14 8UX

By train

The nearest train station to London Olympia is Kensington (Olympia). It’s one stop from Shepherd’s Bush (Central line) or West Brompton (District line).

There is also a service from Earls Court on the District line on weekends, though trains run less frequently from there on weekends and during major events.

The London Olympia is next to the Kensington (Olympia) train station.

By car

From the M1/A1/M11/A10/M4, take the A406 westbound onto the A4. Go over the Hammersmith Flyover and turn left onto the B317 (North End Road) before following signs.

From the A3/M3, follow signs for Central London. From Wandsworth Bridge, turn left onto New Kings Road, turn right onto Fulham High Street, which becomes Fulham Palace Road. At the Hammersmith roundabout turn right into Hammersmith Road.

If you’re coming from Putney Bridge, turn left onto Fulham Palace Road.

From the M2/M20/A2, follow signs to central London, take Blackfriars, London, Waterloo, Vauxhall, Southwark, Chelsea or Battersea Bridges, then turn left along Embankment and follow signs.

From the A12/A13 follow signs for Central London towards Tower or London Bridge. Do not cross the bridge, but continue along Embankment and follow signs instead.

You can pre-book parking here.
