The stadium has been labelled as a ‘public transport’ destination, meaning that there is limited parking available at the stadium itself and there is also a residents only parking scheme in operation in the local area. Bookings can be made on the official website www.wembleyofficialparking.com though parking is expensive at £30.
However, a more economic option is available via www.justpark.com where you can park for as little as £10 by using a local resident’s driveway.
The stadium is well signposted from the end of the M1 & M40 just off the A406 North Circular Road.
From the M1:
At the roundabout at the end of the M1, turn right onto the A406 (North Circular/West Wembley). Continue along the A406 for a couple of miles and then after crossing a metal suspended bridge, you will pass a McDonalds on your left. At the traffic lights with an Ikea Store on one corner bear left onto Drury Way. Keep Ikea on your right, go straight across the next two roundabouts. You will pass a Tesco petrol station on your right and then at the traffic lights turn left into Grand Central Avenue (B4557). The stadium is at the end of this road.
You can also park at one of the tube stations at the end of the Metropolitan line such as Uxbridge, Hillingdon or Ruislip or at Stanmore on the Jubilee line and then take the tube to Wembley Park.
The nearest London Underground station is Wembley Park which is around a ten minute walk from the stadium. This is served by both the Jubilee & Metropolitan lines, although it is best to take the latter as it has fewer stops. Wembley Central is slightly further away from the stadium and has both rail & underground connections. This underground station is served by the Bakerloo line, whilst the railway station is on the London Euston-Milton Keynes line. The nearest train station is Wembley Stadium which is on the London Marylebone-Birmingham line.
You can save on the cost of fares by booking in advance at www.nationalrail.co.uk.
Alternatively, you can travel to Wembley via coach.
National Express is offering up to 30% off their standard prices with adult fares at £20.50 and child at £12. This is somewhat cheaper than the club’s official coaches at £30 each with no concessions.
