Best tube station for Wembley exit

Options
Hi all. I'm taking my daughters to a concert at Wembley next month and I'm aware that getting to the main station (Wembley Park?) can take hours as it's crammed with so many people. Can anyone advise on which other nearby stations are easy enough to get to and how far they are please?

    Ideally I want to park at Hillingdon but the only direct line to there is from Wembley Park so I guess I'll have to change if I use a different station. Am heading west.

    A tip for coming out of Wembley- you will just have to wait and be herded along with the crowd- it is usually very well organised. 

    But, when you get to the tube station, go northbound one stop and then change over and come back on yourself. This means you get a seat and it’s much quicker than waiting for multiple southbound trains to come by until you can get on!

    I have used Wembley Central (bakerloo line) in the past definitely easier to get onto the tube even though it's a bit further than Wembley Park

    I'd suggest that going North back to Hillingdon on the Met Line would be slightly less crowded than South into Central London?  Avoid the Jubilee Line trains/platforms when returning!

    From Hillingdon it's Metropolitan Line all the way.  Some fast trains might bypass Wembley from Harrow-on-the-Hill so do be aware of that.  You may be able to change at Harrow on the way back if you get on a Watford or Amersham train at Wembley?

    It'd be a right pita to swap lines to get to Wembley Central (a walk between Northwick Park and Kenton stations), so probably best avoided.  Check it out on the maps.
    Wembley Central also has the Overground lines into Euston and towards Watford if you can find a suitable place to park?.
