Wembley has done a lot in recent years to attract a new generation of house buyers and renters. The property market reflects this new energy, and Wembley is quickly becoming a backdrop of sleek, shiny modern apartment blocks set against bustling business and leisure quarters.
The whole area is smartening up rapidly, particularly when it comes to Wembley Park. This part of Wembley is a young professional’s paradise. There are ample high-end accommodation options and an impressive array of both independent and high-street restaurants and shops. Boxpark Wembley encapsulates this mood entirely. Since its opening in 2018, it has brought an incredibly diverse selection of street food traders and cultural events to those lucky enough to live here.
Then, of course, there is the entertainment and culture scene. Wembley Stadium itself is one of the country’s premier sporting locations. It offers sports lovers the chance to see football, rugby and NFL played at the highest level.
If music is more your thing, you can head to the legendary SSE Arena, which is an indoor stadium right next door. This is one of the best music venues in the UK, with an 80-year history of hosting musical greats from David Bowie and The Beatles to Rihanna and Justin Timberlake.
Transport in Wembley
Despite being fairly far out west, Wembley is still well connected to the London public transport system. This is partially because fans need to get to and from the stadium quickly and easily. Accordingly, there are good rail, bus and London Underground links for Wembley residents, with a focus on the stadium and immediate area.
Both the Metropolitan Line and Jubilee Line run directly through to the stadium, and it’s only one stop from London Marylebone Station on Chiltern Railways services. Bus routes through Wembley are plentiful, and there are even direct National Express coach links available for event days.
Wembley property prices
