Why Wembley Park? Lets find out….
Wembley Park is fast becoming another one of Londons most popular, sought after locations to relocate.
Wembley is famously recognised as the location of Wembley Stadium, the home of England’s national football team and the largest stadium by capacity in the UK. The iconic arch has played host to many sporting events such as the NFL, Premier League, UEFA Champions League Finals, Rugby and Boxing as well as a plethora of music concerts and shows from international performers such as; Fleetwood Mac, Take That, Beyonce, Ed Sheeran, BTS (Korean artists), The Who, The Spice Girls, Pink Floyd.
But Wembley is much more than a stadium, it’s also the home to a world-famous cultural neighbourhood – Wembley Park. A tree lined boulevard decorates open space for residents and guests who live, work, entertain and shop here. A professional and family orientated community take advantage of a newly transformed social space, spanning 85 acres. There’s an all-weather play park for children too. The core purpose behind the regeneration of the area is to create a vibrant and welcoming place where people want to spend their time, a precious commodity, whether for pleasure or purpose.

According to the Londonist, ‘Wembley is one of London’s most historic places and in fact its name can be traced back to the early middle ages. Wemba was the name of the local landholder. The second part is from the Old English word ley, meaning a clearing or meadow’. Wembley Park was created in the late 18th century by the Landscape architect, Humphrey Repton who describes the site as “a most beautiful spot near Harrow”.
