MEX Prices

The MEX may be over, but for historical reference here are the entrance prices for the Exhibition.

On March 10th 2000 some modifications were made to provide extended opening hours and a cheap rate evening visit.

After a period of operating a 14 hour day from April 1st 2000 on Fridays, Saturdays, Bank Holidays and school holidays, opening was limited to 8pm every day as a cost-cutting exercise in May. In addition, a ‘mid-week’, Sunday-Thursday, 3 hour evening session was available at £10 (not applicable Friday or Saturday evenings) with an additional March 2000 ‘special’ of £7 for a 3-hour afternoon visit (3pm – 6pm), There was also a 20% discount for all ‘second’ visits.

In addition to the above, Greenwich residents were eligible for free entry against the purchase of a £2 Greenwich Card (available from all Greenwich Borough Leisure Centres or direct from the Council). This card also entitled the holder to reduced price entry to Leisure Centres as well as offering discounts at certain businesses in the area.

NMEC claimed that the Exhibition “offered the greatest concentration of entertainment, inspiration and education under one roof anywhere in the world. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that will be open for only 366 days.”

The coach carrier, National Express, announced a flat rate of £29.99 for travel and admission to the Dome combined – meaning that people travelling from as far afield as Plymouth, Cardiff or Aberdeen would all pay the same.

NMEC also offered one million education visits, free of charge, representing an opportunity for school children to visit the Dome.
