You need to get to Custom House for ExCeL.
I dont know what stations from Gloucestershire to London. But I do know you get the Jubilee Line, which is the grey line on maps, to Canning Town and get the DLR from Canning Town to Custom House for ExCeL.

As Charny said you need to get to Custom House.

I would use http://www.thetrainline.com to find out what train you need to get to London. I'd book as soon as you can so that you can get advance fares (which are much cheaper).

As for the tube, it's pretty easy to get to Custom House from Waterloo (as Charny said). If you get into a different station then I have found this website (http://www.tubeplanner.com/planner) very helpful for finding out which lines to get, where to change, etc. It shows you how many stops until you need to change, how long it will take and which fare zones you need.

You can always ask at ticket offices/information desks if you need to (or you may see some cosplayers at some point who I'm sure will help if you ask).

Of course, you could do what mgg-thunder says Travelling with someone is always nicer than by yourself!

I'm coming from Northampton, and the Train is coming from Birmingham.
So for those on the Birmingham line will want to go to Euston.

Then the fastest way across London will be on the Northern Line from;-
1. Euston to Bank.

The DLR from;-
2. Bank to Canning Town
(this will be destined to King George V or Woolwich Arsenal).

The DLR from;-
3. Canning Town to Custom House for ExCeL
(this will be destined for Beckton).

you'll most likely be going into paddington.
from there you take the bakerloo line to waterloo, the jubilee to canning town and the DLR to custom house
