Plan your journey to The Cleaning Show 2023

Potential train and tube disruption – plan your journey to The Cleaning Show 2023

The Cleaning Show 2023 takes place at ExCeL London from 14-16 March 2023, bringing the cleaning and hygiene industry together, but recent strike action is threatening to cause disruption during the event.

So far, Tuesday 14 March is unaffected by strike action. However, on Wednesday 15 March, services on the London Underground are likely to be cancelled by strike action – although the Dockland Light Railway (DLR) will not be affected. The DLR, which is mostly automated, serves the two stations at the West and East entrances to ExCeL, Custom House and Prince Regent.

Thursday 16 March sees 14 train operators affected, affecting nationwide travel, potentially causing chaos for Cleaning Show attendees attempting to return home following the show’s conclusion. The London Underground will be running as normal.

In response, the organisers of the Cleaning Show are recommending a number of options for attendees who will be affected, and are even offer 500 £10 Uber vouchers for visitors who will need to take a taxi to complete their journey. To claim your voucher, follow THIS LINK to fill in a form and the organisers will get back to you with a voucher link and instructions on how to redeem when you travel.

Other options include driving to ExCeL and using one of the venue’s 2,000 parking spaces, although spaces are first come, first served pay and display spaces. If you are planning to travel to ExCeL by road, use the postcode E16 1XL.

The Uber Boat by Thames Clippers also services the route, with departures from London piers every 20 minutes, and are particularly useful if your train journey ends at Waterloo or London Bridge. Alight at Royal Wharf Pier, and it’s a 20 minute walk over the Royal Victoria dock footbridge to ExCeL’s west entrance.

There’s still hope that before The Cleaning Show 2023 commences strike action will be called off, but until this happens it pays to adjust your plans in case of disruption.
