London Motor Show, formerly the London Motorfair, is a motor show in England. It was held biannually at Earls Court Exhibition Centre, from 1977 to 1999. When the event won the support of the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders and P&O Events, in October 1993, the name changed from the London Motorfair to The London Motor Show.

Following the cancellation of the show of 2001, the show of 2003 was planned to be called the New London Motor Show, and was due to take place at Earls Court from June 19 to 29, but following the twelve month consultation process with the motor industry in Britain, the organisers decided to cancel the show in November 2002, due to lack of support.
The show of 2001 was scheduled to run at Earls Court between 17 and 28 October, but was cancelled in July 2001, due to difficult trading conditions.
The show ran from 20 to 31 October, and included Classic Car Day (26 October 26) and special Motorsport Days (27–28 October).
