The history and demise of Earls Court

Last updated January 24th, 2014

Our expert advisor, author and historian Rene Dee has written a fascinating article on the history and demise of Earls Court Exhibition Centre:
Earl’s Court Exhibition Centre is undeniably a historical icon; the home of dramatic and perennial UK exhibitions since before the present structure was built, starting in 1886/7 when audiences were gripped by the thrills of Buffalo Bill and his cowboy spectaculars, as well as Roman chariot races. Since then everything from Crufts Dog Show, the Royal Tournament, The Ideal Home Exhibition, the Royal Smithfield Show, the National Boat Show, the Motor Show, the World Travel Market and countless mega concerts have rolled in and out of their cavernous halls.
All that is about to come to an end, with the final approval of a major new development after several years of legal opposition by nearby residents and the exhibition industry, covering not just the Earl’s Court Exhibition envelope but, 761 existing residential property alongside Earl’s Court also.
