Chelsea v Spurs - travel information for Wembley - updated
20 April 2017|Tottenham Hotspur
Travel information for supporters attending our FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea at Wembley Stadium, connected by EE, on Saturday.
WEMBLEY TRAVEL UPDATE - APRIL 21
There has been a recent line side fire in the South Hampstead area which has led to major damage to a cable which supplies traction power on a section of DC lines out of London Euston.
As a result there will be no London Overground services serving Wembley Central on Saturday.
Please note this does NOT impact Bakerloo line services that also serve Wembley Central station.
Supporters travelling to Wembley should use either Metropolitan or Jubilee line services to Wembley Park or Bakerloo line services to Wembley Central. Supporters who travel into Euston on Virgin or London Midland rail services are advised to walk to nearby Euston Square (400 metres) and use Metropolitan line services to Wembley Park station.
WEMBLEY STADIUM IS A PUBLIC TRANSPORT DESTINATION.
We would recommend all supporters attending the match visit www.wembleystadium.com to get more information about travelling to the stadium, or download the Stadium Mobile App which provides a dedicated journey planner and live travel information.
Remember, we kick-off at 5.15pm and would recommend all fans leave plenty of time to get to the stadium as it will be extremely busy around the venue.
Wembley Park station will be busy pre and post-match, so please consider using Wembley Stadium and Wembley Central stations for your journey. Chiltern Railways serves Wembley Stadium station from London Marylebone station. This is just a five-minute walk from Baker Street station with a journey time to the national stadium of 13 minutes and provides an alternative option for supporters travelling from central London.
See below more information about the various transport hubs…
As a public transport destination, the stadium is served by several major transport connections. It is an easy 10-minute walk from Wembley Park station, 12 minutes from Wembley Central station and very close to Wembley Stadium station. All stations have direct services from Central London and connections beyond.
Wembley Park station
Wembley Park underground station is served by both the Metropolitan and Jubilee Lines. On arrival at Wembley Park, stairs from the ticketing hall will guide you down onto Olympic Way from where the stadium will be clearly visible. A 10-minute walk will bring you to the front of the stadium.
Wembley Central station
This station has both underground and overground services. It is served by the Bakerloo underground line, London Overground and national rail services, and connects to stations including Euston, Watford Junction and Willesden Junction.
Wembley Stadium station
Wembley Stadium station is on the Chiltern train line. This line services the Midlands, Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire. London trains on this line depart from Marylebone station. On arrival at the station the stadium will be clearly visible. Lifts or stairs will take you from the platforms up onto street level.
Arriving by car
We strongly advise against driving to the stadium as there will be no parking available at the stadium or in the surrounding streets.
The limited parking spaces at the stadium are reserved for coaches, disabled visitors and event owners and are all pre-booked.
Brent Council operates a Wembley Stadium Event Day Protective Parking Scheme in all roads within an approximate 1.5 mile radius of the stadium. Operational on major event days only, the scheme is designed to minimise disruption and protect local residents and businesses from illegal parking from visitors to the stadium.
This means any visitors driving to events at Wembley Stadium will NOT be able to park in the surrounding streets. Brent Council has made it clear that illegally parked vehicles will be issued with large parking fines and will also be towed away.
In addition, Metropolitan Police may have security measures on approach roads on major event days which may also hinder a journey by car.
