We had booked lunch for 12.30 as a treat whilst attending The Ideal Home Exhibition. We arrived at 12 noon just so that we were sure where we were going. It wasn't easy to find. The restaurant with probably over 100 tables was completely empty and the young lady who greeted us offered us to eat immediately. We said "OK"... 更多
All the years as a kid,bunking in shows like the motor show, royal tournament,boat show,etc,driving past this at least once s week and seeing it coming down is saddening.used to be able to see the place from the tower block I lived in,and to know the land is being used for flats for the rich,makes me rather sad.
Always go to Christmas Show with my mum and was so looking forward to it. Earls Court always has a snow scene with Father Christmas and Elves etc. You came out of the tube and it was there. Now at Olympia and it's a long walk. Arrived and the queue was at least an hour and a half long. We... 更多
After its closure we decided the exhibition centre would be a cool place to have a look around. It sure was! Demolition had started, and most of the place had been stripped out in preparation. It was interesting to see the building so bare, and looking around the behind the scenes parts was cool.
Participated the red bull dancehall clash which was an asome and unique event in this big arena. Good soundquality and easy access to the bar without waiting too long to get the next drink. Fast access into the Hall.
I spent many times here in the past, Concerts, Exhibitions, Conferences, Shows, The Royal Tournament to name a few.

The building was fantastic it is a shame the the current generations wont get to enjoy the old place.

For £13.75 we were given half a sandwich (cut in 2), a soggy pastry sausage roll type item, a very small glass of jelly which was not set (although... 更多
I have wanted to to the Ideal Home Show for years and thought it would be great for getting some ideas for new kitchen and home renovation project. Big disappointment It was absolutely rubbish! There was one good stand with some lovely furniture by Nord 11 as we came in but the rest of it was awful. It was run... 更多
