Earls Court & Olympia – Information

Earls Court Exhibition Centre and Olympia Exhibition Centre have been very important to the infrastructure & development of the area in which Castletown House Serviced Apartments is located. Here’s a little background, courtesy of the website myearlscourt.com.

Back in 1937, Earls Court One opened for business with the Chocolate and Confectionery Exhibition, and Earls Court Two was added in 1991. Through the years these two venues have hosted massive staff parties, sporting events and trade shows including the Ideal Home Show, the London Book Fair, the Good Food Show and the International Horse Show.

The Earls Court Exhibition Centre also has a long musical tradition, hosting the BRIT Awards and concerts by the likes of Madonna, Elton John, Kylie, Queen and the Rolling Stones.

Because of its excellent transport links, Earls Court was selected to be the volleyball venue for the London 2012 Olympics.

Earls Court & Olympia is a very successful business and has longstanding relationships with many high-profile clients in the events and conferencing industry. It is committed to maintaining these relationships by investing heavily in Olympia.

In October 2010 The London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham granted planning consent for the proposed upgrade of Olympia. This upgrade improved the flexibility of the space, allowing it to host a number of events simultaneously and making it one of central London’s premier, state-of-the-art venues. With these better facilities and greater capacity, Olympia will be able to host many of the events held at Earls Court One and Two, ensuring the future success of the exhibitions business.

Earls Court will then be redeveloped into a vibrant, sustainable new neighbourhood providing new housing and jobs for Londoners.
