Wembley Stadium is currently the biggest stadium in Europe, with a capacity of 90,000. The stadium hosts many sports events, from football to the NFL, as well as concerts featuring some of the biggest stars in the world.

The current stadium was opened in 2007 to replace the old stadium, which was demolished in 2002 and 2003.

There are two ways to visit the stadium. The first one is to attend one of the events held at the stadium. The second one is participating in a Wembley Tour, which is held regularly several times daily. On the tour, you can visit many of the areas of the stadium, from sports bars with sports memorabilia to the tunnel that leads to the pitch. The tour also includes visiting the dressing rooms, the press area where players are interviewed, and the auditorium, where the press events are held after a match. The stadium looks impressive even when empty, and you’ll also get to test the acoustics of the stadium (which are great, by the way).

For people more interested in music, there are corridors lined with pictures from some of the major events that have been held at Wembley, including Live Aid in 1985 and concerts of artists like Madonna and Ed Sheeran.

Above the stadium, you can see the Wembley Arch, which has become synonymous with the stadium itself. The arch is 133 meters high and visible across London.

The surrounding area of Wembley Park has shopping opportunities, restaurants and other entertainment options. Also, Wembley Arena, an indoor concert venue with a seating capacity of 12,500, is located nearby.

Getting there

There are good connections to Wembley on public transport. You can get there using the Metropolitan or Jubilee tube lines, or by taking a train from the Marylebone station. Driving can be a bit of a hassle and you can expect a lot of traffic before/after an event.
