Minibus or coach hire transport to MCM Comic Con

Transport to London Comic ConComic conventions are always a big hit, drawing sci-fi and superhero movie buffs, anime fans, gamers and comic collectors out in hordes to see the latest gaming industry developments, meet creators and mingle with fellow fans.

The UK alone holds numerous comic and gaming conventions each year, but the most popular is the MCM Comic Con. MCM holds events biannually in London and once a year in Birmingham, Glasgow and Manchester. The next event in London is from 24 to 26 May at ExCel London. Be sure to gather your friends, buy your tickets and book your transport to London with MET Coaches, so everyone in your party can have a day of fun without having to worry about transportation.

What to expect at MCM London?

Cosplay

In these events, fans of comics, video games, manga, anime and all things pop culture go dressed as their favourite characters (known as cosplaying) or in steampunk outfits. Those serious about cosplay should enter the UK Championships of Cosplay where entrants pose and display their costumes. The winner will be flown to Chicago to participate in the Global Championship of Cosplay final. Registrations for the qualifiers are open, so it’s time to get your cosplay ready.

Note that metal blades (sharp or blunt), working projectile weapons and wooden or metal bats are forbidden in cosplay for safety purposes.

Meet actors and voice actors

You’re familiar with their voices, but the London MCM Comic Con is a great opportunity to meet them in person. People who voice cartoon and game characters, directors of popular anime series and actors from big hit TV shows often attend to hold panels and sign autographs for fans. This year, big names attending include Marvel star Sebastian Stan who plays Bucky Barnes and Stranger Things star David Harbour.

Shop ’til you drop

From the artist alley to the comic village, there is a plethora of items to buy at London Comic Con. The artist alley is the place to visit to purchase artwork, Comic Village sells hundreds of comic books and manga, CEX and Game sell the latest video games and there are numerous stalls to visit if you want hand made crafts. It’s common to end the day with multiple bags to take back home.

If you have a long journey back home and you’ve done a lot of shopping, travelling to and from the ExCel in one of our minibuses or coaches is the best option. With us, you can sit back and relax on your way back home instead of following the crowd to the train station.
