Your guide to moving to Wembley

Why Wembley is a good place to live

Best known as host to sports heroes and popstars, there’s way more to this iconic entertainment hub than meets the eye. Well-connected, diverse and bustling, Wembley is a great place to live if you want to embrace city life and a rich cultural scene.

Wembley has become a true foodie destination and a huge shopping mecca, as well as a fun night out thanks to chic bars and popular venues like Boxpark. The world-famous stadium is a source of pride for locals, and its resulting tourism contributes to a thriving local economy. 

One of Wembley’s lesser-known merits is its excellent parks, where you can leave behind the rush of the city in seconds. Green spaces and nature are part of the fabric of Wembley, even as new buildings pop up - the local council advocates for them to aid mental health and wellbeing.

Living in Wembley comes with the peace of mind of a low crime rate compared to other parts of the capital, thanks in part to heightened police presence at events. Wembley is one of the most multicultural parts of London and home to students from several universities. Excellent travel connections make it easy to both embrace and escape the city, depending on how you’re feeling.

What is Wembley famous for?

Wembley is most famous for Wembley Stadium and Wembley Arena, two adjacent venues that host the world’s best sports and music events.

The stadium was the venue for the 1948 Summer Olympics and the 1966 FIFA World Cup Final, and it regularly hosts international football matches, concerts and other high-profile events.

Things to do in Wembley

Wembley’s dynamic blend of shopping, entertainment, dining and culture means you’ll never be short of things to do and see.

If you’re a football fanatic, then a tour of Wembley Stadium will be top of your list. You can explore the changing rooms, press room and even get your hands on a (replica) FA Cup. The nearby London Designer Outlet is a shopping haven with high-end bargains and high street faves.

Wembley Park is the place to eat, drink and dance ‘til your heart’s content, whether you’re hitting a trendy cafe, international restaurant or designer bar. The bustling Wembley Market is an alternative option for a taste of authentic street food, or choose from many local pubs and their busy beer gardens for a drink before a big game.

King Edward VII Park and Wembley Park are your go-tos for a respite from the urban bustle - sprawling green spaces for walking, cycling or picnicking. Fryent Country Park is another great option, sitting between Wembley Park and Kingsbury with 30 hectares of green space.
