What to see at the London International Boat Show


The annual London International Boat Show is one big boating extravaganza with an exhibition of boats, live water sports, accessories and loads of marine attractions. It's a big event in the London calender and attracts hundreds of visitors to the massive ExCeL Exhibition Centre in East London.

Whether you're a sailor or landlubber, there's something for everyone at the show. As London accommodation specialists, we always see a rise in demand for serviced apartments in the Canary Wharf and Docklands area during the show and help accommodate many of its exhibitors and visitors.

  1. You can explore hundreds of boats, from vast, extravagant yachts to mini dinghies, from modern, state-of-the-art boats to classics at The London Boat Show. Visitors can climb aboard and experience the boats up close, whilst experts are on hand to talk through the latest models.
  2. Tullett Prebon London International Boat Show's attractions include a water sports area, working and narrow boats and a section where you can find celebrity interviews and educational shows. And making the most of its dockside location, there's always the chance to try out boats on the river.
