    Best Place To Park For Wembley Stadium ? 1st May 07 at 10:59 AM
    I've been lucky enough to bag some tickets for the England v Brazil game at the new Wembley Stadium on 1st June but don't know where to park !

    We'll be travelling up the M4 and plan to park up somewhere convenient and get the tube in but has anybody got any recommendations about places to park on the West side of London, near to a suitable tube station for Wembley, that will still be open when we get back late in the evening ??

    Cheers all.

    for 15 you can park next to the stadium. or for prices around 10 you can park in one of the 'not recommended' car parks in the industrial estate next to the stadium also.

    by the time you've paid for parking elsewhere, paid for the tube and then spent an hour trying to force your way into the tube station when 70,000+ people are all doing the same after the match, i'd pay 15 and park at the stadium.

    usually, you can pre-book your 15 parking on the wembley website.

    Cant help you on the car parking but it may be advisable to sell the car before the match if your planning on having a couple of burgers during the game.

    If you're coming up the M4, you could come round the M25 and take the Metropolitan line in. Plenty of choices. I always use Chorleywood. The parking is cheap, the fare is 1 each way with an Oyster card and most people are packed into the trains going just about everywhere else, which means that I generally get a seat, and I've done this tons of times to both the arena and the stadium. You do however need to check that there are no engineering works on the line that weekend though.

    As you come along the north circular, you will see Wembley Stadium signposted down a small road next to a Mcdonalds (just before Ikea) - we parked in a church hall car park just past that Mcdonalds. It was 10 and a half hour walk, but we did escape at the end without sitting in any traffic.

    As we walked there were lots of private companies offering their car parks for a fee, so we probably could have parked even closer - they were mostly about 10-15

    Why on earth would you go to St Johns Wood from the M1 to get to Wembley?:confused:

    Much better off parking near Dollis Hill or Kingsbury, or getting off at J4 and parking near Cannons Park.

    ive stopped at watford junction and got on the tube there then on the way back i didnt get one bit of traffic getting onto the motorway.
    ive also heard albert square isnt to great for parking especially if theres a market on so stay away from walford!

    actually, i'm quite glad it got resurrected, as i need to find somewhere to park for wembley stadium on july 5th for take that with the missus and kids

    was thinking of paying up and parking in the official wembley stadium car park, as it'll be easier than getting tube and walking etc with the kids when we come out, but someone above says its a nightmare to get out of!!

    not sure what to do now, so if anyone else has good or bad experiences of this car park, do let me know please.....

    I have parked there before as mentioned earlier in this thread and didn't have any trouble getting out of the car park. there was slow-moving traffic to get out onto the main road in Wembley but we were on our way within 10 minutes.

    I've also got the coach there before and that took about 45 minutes to get out of the car park and on it's way.

    Everyone I know uses Stanmore Tube Station, it's perfect. A few stops on the tube, heading in the different direction from most of the crowds, great motorway access from there, and 450-ish parking spaces.

    Don't forget that the Chiltern railway line also calls at Wembley, so for many people it may be easier to park at one of their stations and get the train rather than use the tube with everyone else. This applies for pretty much anyone using any part of the M40, which runs parallel to the railway.

    I agree with moonchild that Stanmore is the best station to park at. 3.20 a day Mon-Fri and only 1 per day weekends. Wembley Park station has a car park at similar rates, but it is a lot smaller and as others had said the traffic is bad after events. Only 4 stops from Wembley Park to Stanmore after the event.
