We have closed the door on another year of Grand Designs Live. Each year it keeps getting better and better. We love that we are able to attend each year. London Excel is the perfect location for it too, with its massive function space that stretches over 100,000 sqm. making for plenty of room to explore everything home, garden and more.
As soon as you enter the great hall through a tunnelled entranceway, into the centre of the show, you are immediately welcomed by an overload of stalls with businesses showcasing their product. To your left, there was everything exteriors such as gardens and self or assisted build, in front of the Grand Theatre where you might be lucky enough to see Kevin McCloud answering all your burning questions. To the right, there is home interiors, electronic gadgets and the design arcade. Good thing you are given a show map when you arrive because otherwise, it’s hard to know where to start and what is available.
