I have always been on the Wednesday or Thursday afternoon - never had to queue or hang about. I don't think it ever gets too bad though, they have a load of queues for different number ranges.

Think the Saturday gets a bit busy at times but I have been on Thursday and Friday and have never queued at all. Its all done very efficiently and smoothly.

Going to the Expo is part of teh experience of London and if you can get there in teh week and enjoy it I would rather than doing it on saturday and being rushed/being on your feet too long.

I'm defo with the other posters.  If you can make it part of the experience, rather than a chore, it's so much better.  I got there first thing on the first day it opened, did what I had to, and then had a mooch around the stands.  All part of the atmosphere, and you can never tire of hearing The Trap playing in the background - emotionally charged!!

WE'll be going on the Saturday....however, I think I might sign some form to get one of my friends to pick it up for me!

I always like to go on the Wednesday. Make an afternoon of it, when it is not too busy. Have a late lunch, and one final Pint before 'Booze Lockdown' for the final 4 days pre marathon.

If I recall correctly, London Pride were handing out free beer by the thimble full last year. It washed down that beetroot rubbish a treat!!
