On May 24, 2022, London's new high-speed train line, the "Elizabeth line", will officially open, thus adding a new way of reaching ExCeL London. With the Royal Docks venue now having its own dedicated Elizabeth line station, in addition to two existing DLR stops, ExCeL London CEO Jeremy Rees says it will cut journey times by up to two thirds.

"In addition to reducing journey times, we expect to see an even higher percentage of C-Suite delegates attending our events as a direct consequence. 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", Rees adds.

The high-speed Elizabeth line becomes part of the existing TFL network with 24 trains running per hour once fully operational. For ExCeL, visitors from central London will now be able to reach the venue in 12 minutes, whilst door-to-door from Heathrow Airport will be 43 minutes.
