May MCM London 2018 Review
The Convention spans a three day event from Friday 25th May to the Sunday 27th May. You can purchase entry tickets for specific dates or you can be a ‘baller’ and simply pick up a weekend ticket which ultimately will save you money.
The Steam Punk Zone
One of the Highlights at this years MCM London was the incredible Steam Punk Museum. With an assortment of hand & machine crafted ultra realistic Steam Punk Merch & Cosplay equipment.
Not only did they have an assortment of clothing and props available but they also had an incredible range of artwork, themed public areas and much more. All of the staff members were consistently in performance to sell the ultimate Steam Punk Experience.
We hope for the Steam Punk Museum to make a return in the MCM London Convention later in the year.

Is MCM London Good Value?
We are often asked if MCM London is good value. It entirely depends on the location in which you will be travelling from. The ticket prices are extremely low for what the convention offers.
You will not be able to get a bigger and more unique shopping experience for you and your family.
The only downside is travel to London can be sometimes expensive. However if you plan your Trip in advance you can snipe some pretty cheap hotels.
As always we loved every minute of MCM London May 2018. With the sheer hall size dedicated to everything that we live and breath for. We will be sure to update this website with more insights on what is to offer if you decide to attend MCM London in the future.
