The UK's biggest free motor show returns this year to London's Canary Wharf with over 400,000 visitors expected.

The event looks set to attract more than 13 of the world's biggest car manufacturers – stark contrast to the British International motor show usually held down the road at the Excel centre which has now been cancelled twice.

Motorexpo runs from 6 – 12 June and organisers claim it offers 'unparalleled access' to the cars on show.

Visitors will be encouraged to examine the vehicles on display, and test drives will be offered on select cars – there will be some of the first opportunities to drive the new Vauxhall Ampera and Land Rover will have an off-road course set up, too.

Amongst others, Bentley, Tesla, BMW and Jaguar will also be vying for the attention of the well-paid workers who ply their trade in the East London location.

Motorexpo CEO Graeme Carver said: "This summer's event is shaping up to be bigger and better than ever. The roster is brimming with leading mainstream and prestige car manufacturers, and the unmatched promise of being able to get up close to the latest models is a major draw."

Entry to the event will be free and access should be easy via the London Underground or Docklands Light Railway.
