The Motorhome Caravan & Camping Show will run from Tuesday 14 to Sunday 19 February 2012 inclusive in London at ExCeL, Royal Victoria Dock, London, E16 1XL.
Located in the North and South halls of ExCeL, the opening Times on Tuesday through Saturday are 10.00am to 6.00pm, closing earlier at 5:00pm on Sunday, presumably to give the exhibitors and organisers a chance to pack up and get home.
Tickets start from £7.00 in advance (plus a transaction fee!) and include a show guide. Group tickets are also available. Kids go free although, having been to ExCeL many times before, I’m struggling to imagine mine enjoying a day out there!
Car parking is included in your ticket cost, although only if you buy tickets in advance (which is cheaper too). However, there will not be a temporary campsite facility at the show, presumably because space is at a premium in London. The ExCeL venue was designed with disabled visitors in mind, so if you have limited mobility don’t let that put you off. And if you are in a wheelchair, needing a carer, then another adult can get in with you for free.
To learn all the detail on the ExCeL Docklands venue itself, opening times, ticket prices, car parking, nearby campsites etc go to the organisers’ website:
According to the organisers, the Motorhome, Caravan & Camping Show will be the only place in the spring where the major motorhome and caravan manufacturers and dealers will be displaying their latest season’s models.
Hundreds of caravans will be on display – from entry-level family tourers through to luxurious 6-berth fifth wheelers. There will also be hundreds of new motorhomes, from compact 2-berth campervans through to luxurious (and expensive) 6-berth American coach-builts, on display across both the North and South halls.
Visitors will be able to compare all the new model layouts, interiors, specifications and innovations. Whatever your requirements, the exhibitors clearly hope that you’ll find the perfect motorhome or caravan for you at the show.
Caravan manufacturers exhibiting include: Adria; Airstream; Bailey (Orion, Olympus, Pegasus, Unicorn); Carlight; Coachman (Amara, Pastiche, Laser and VIP); Elddis (Xplore, Crusader, Avante, Odyssey); Eterniti Caravans; Lunar (Ariva/Quasar, Stellar/Lexon, Clubman/Delta); Stealth; Swift Group (Swift, Sterling, Sprite).
