We went here for the Great British Beer Festival and it was a very good venue for the amount of people. Plenty of space and easy to get to on the train!

What a great festival, lots of excellent beer and food. This was my 5th festival and it was the best yet. Plenty of atmosphere, but not too overcrowded. We found seats for 8 quite easily and enjoyed the whole experience. Roll on next year.

Came here for the Great British Beer Festival and what an exhibition. The whole place full of make shift bars serving over 900 beers. Noticed a wine bar and a gin bar. Plenty of food stalls. Great fun to meet up with friends.

Our first time at this event so had no idea what to expect and see. Trains from Earls Court ran only every 20 mins so they were full each time, if you can drive this would probably be a better suggestion. Queues into the event...More

You would be correct to use West Ken. It will be a nice busy area so the walk should be absolutely fine!
