Oktoberfest 2019 in London

A fun drinking spree for beer-loving souls, this year, the annual Oktoberfest is a three-part extravaganza beginning at Milwall Park (Canary Wharf), then moving to Olympia London for a Halloween Oktoberfest Special and ending at a central London location. Expect a grand tent, a festive atmosphere and boisterous crowds, with many dressed in lederhosen and dirndl dresses, enjoying bratwurst and drinking copious amounts of good German beer. Thousands of people will be seated, some even standing, at the many rows of tables, drinking and dancing to the sounds of the bands from Germany playing. Here are the dates:

Week 1: Millwall Park, Canary Wharf

  • 03 – 06 October 2019
  • 10 – 13 October 2019

Week 2: Olympia London

  • 24 – 26 October 2019

Week 3: Central London

  • 15 – 16 October

Special corporate packages are also available at Oktoberfest – this would be a unique day out for your team that is sure to be met with approval. We also offer corporate coach hire, which will make your trip extra special. Our fleet ranges from 16-70 seats with reclining chairs which we’re certain you’ll appreciate after a day at Oktoberfest.

When you book your transport with MET, you can drink to your heart’s content without worrying about how you’ll get home after a day of drinking.
