This is the first time I have been to Olympia and I was very impressed with the organisation of the show and the facilities within the building. For a start, an impressive old building in central London! The facilities - toilets, cloakrooms, restaurants, cafes etc...More

Having worked at exhibition halls across the world. Olympia is quite possibly the worst! Awful location, extortionate prices for parking and venue fees. Shame they didn't knock this one down instead of earls court.

We visited the show this year and were very disappointed with the overall exhibition. The show didn’t cater for the contents of a house, it was like a badly planned market. After visiting the show for the past 20 years we won’t be going again.More

You would be correct to use West Ken. It will be a nice busy area so the walk should be absolutely fine!
