The London International Dive Show (LIDS), owned and organised by the DIVER Group, is back at ExCeL but with a whole new look.

Now the event stretches over four days, from Thursday 11 to Sunday 14, and becomes a full part of the huge festival of outdoor activity to which visitors flock at ExCeL every year.

Your ticket provides admission not only to LIDS but to Europe’s biggest sport & leisure event – the Telegraph Outdoor Adventure & Travel Show (TOATS), the London Bike Show and the Triathlon Show.

The combined event with its multiple attractions for active people is expected to attract more than 60,000 visitors.

You’ll find LIDS close to ExCeL’s west entrance and fully integrated into the event. The extra days offer flexibility in timing your visit. If you have time to spare on a weekday the shows will be in full swing from 1pm until late (8pm) on Thursday and 10-5 on Friday, and run from 9-6 on Saturday and 9-5 on Sunday.

An exciting programme of events and presentations rolls over the four days, so visitors are requested to keep an eye on the latest news and timings on this site, and at for non-diving attractions.

LIDS is owned and organised by DIVER Group, which also owns and organises the annual
Birmingham NEC Dive Show. LIDS has been running for more than 25 years – the past 15 of these at ExCel London.
