Tip 2: Do your research

With six different project zones, ranging from Kitchens and Bathrooms to Gardens and Interiors, this is the biggest Home Show event of the year. To get the most out of your experience, it is important to do your research! Whether you are looking for inspirational ideas or expert advice, there is a vast range of exhibitors to see and explore. Look into what each project zone has to offer in advance and it is always good to prepare a (short) list of things you wish to take away from the exhibition.

Tip 3: Be prepared for the show offers

Many exhibitors bring special offers to the show and it pays to have a shopping list - this way you can pick up a bargain and avoid being swayed by the excitement of the day.

Tip 4: Dress for the day

Exhibitions can very be hot or cold and Grand Designs is no exception. Layers that you can slip on and off easily are a great way to stay comfortable when the temperature fluctuates throughout the day.

Tip 5: Wear the right shoes

Concreate floors can be hard on your feet even when covered in thin carpet. Floors at exhibition halls cannot only be uneven but the varying heights of the stands can also be a trip hazard. So choose the right shoes, ones that are not only comfortable but offer ankle and arch support as well.

Tip 6: How to get there

From setting the morning alarm, to making sure you arrive on time, it is so important to plan your journey to Grand Designs. Travelling by train/tube is usually the easiest way of getting in and out of London. However, whether you live near or far – the London underground is as busy as it is brilliant. Remember to leave yourself plenty of time in order to avoid any delays!
