Location / Accommodation
Bike parking will be in the Wapping Lane multi-story car park this year. It’ll be manned by security over the weekend (during show hours) but spaces are limited so it’s on a first come first serve basis. Once parked up you can walk over to the Dockside entrance (next to the ship). Please do note that we can’t take responsibility for bikes left in the car park overnight, and there is no overnight security outside show opening hours.
If you’re traveling to the show by foot/public transport the entrance will be on Pennington street (the entrance that’s been used for the VIP/Press preview in the past).
Cars cannot use the Wapping Lane multi-story car park. Please check links below for near by carparks.
There are several hotels within close proximity to Tobacco Docks: Dockside hotel, The Tower Hotel, Cheval Three Quays, Whitechapel Holiday Inn & Travelodge Aldgate East are some of the nearest.Bike Shed Shuttle Bus
This year you can take the Bike Shed shuttle bus between our Shoreditch venue and the show, for free! Bus is for ticket-holders and non-ticket-holders. Guideline times for the bus are TBC:
Shadwell & Wapping Overground stations are your best bets by train, both within a 7 minute walk to Tobacco Docks. Click the hot-links BELOW for directions.
If you fancy taking a trip to BSMC HQ in Shoreditch after the show, check out this handy map.
This is a very family friendly event. Kids under 16 go free and they’ll be safe.
We love dogs, and we do allow them at our full-time Shoreditch venue, but sadly dogs are not allowed inside the exhibition space at Tobacco Dock – except Guide Dogs.
