    Morning All,

    Thought id start posting up afew of my explores from the past.
    This place was awesome to walk around, having been there in the past to some shows etc was very different to the explore we had that day. Demo had started and was very evident inside.
    Myself and a non member went into Central and heard that SpiderMonkey and Andy K were already up there, so we met up and went to visit a location, but due to its location and it being a very busy london day (although, which day isnt busy in London eh) we came up with a plan to go here.
    Again, very busy with lots of people about but we still managed to get in and out without being detected.

    Little bit of hitsory from Wiki:

    Earls Court Exhibition Centre is a closed exhibition, conference and events venue in London that originally opened in 1887 and was rebuilt in 1937 in its most recent art deco style exterior. It is located in Earls Court within the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and was the largest such venue within central London. The founder was John R. Whitley and the first exhibition included performances by Buffalo Bill Cody as part of the 'American Exhibition'. This was followed by 'Four National Exhibitions', the title of C. Lowe's 1892 book about Earls Court and its founder.
    In 2013 controversial plans to demolish Earls Court were approved in order to make way for a new residential and retail estate on the site, which is expected to be completed in 2033. Demolition work began on the site in December 2014.
    The owner of Earls Court and Olympia, Capital & Counties Properties (also known as Capco), opened discussions in 2010 with the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham and the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea to demolish the existing landmark centre and redevelop the area with up to 8,000 residential flats, retail outlets and possibly a new convention centre.
