Arrive Early And Avoid Queues
With such big events at Wembley this year, it is no surprise that a huge number of people are expected to be crowding to the venue. Try to arrive at Wembley as early as possible to avoid the rush. Various events at Wembley will open the doors at different times, so check the timings for your show and plan to arrive around 60 to 90 minutes beforehand. This will give you time to look around the area, grab a drink in a nearby bar, and join the queues before they get too long.
Plan Your Route
No matter where in the country you are travelling from, it is important that you plan your journey well in advance. Wembley could not be easier to reach, and is just minutes from Central London. You can head to Wembley Park Station, Wembley Stadium Station or Wembley Central Station by train or tube. If you are travelling by car, there are over 3,000 car parking spaces at Wembley, but be sure to arrive early to avoid the traffic.
