It is not long until the Grand Designs Live show will be set up at London's Excel facility.

Anticipated highlights of the event are the As Seen On TV section and the Garden Design Studio, as well as several stands manned by property experts from different companies.

Admission is priced at between £11 and £18. If people are travelling to the venue by rail, they should take the Docklands Light Railway to Custom House or Prince Regent.

The exhibition is open from 10:00 to 18:00 BST daily, except for the final day when it closes at 17:00. offers visitors to the show a wide range of accommodation in the city, including Kensington hotels such as the Rydges Kensington Plaza Hotel London and the K West Hotel London.
