Wembley's best spots for visitors and residents
Apart from its famous, or possibly infamous, stadium, few non-locals are familiar with this part of London. But there is more happening in Wembley, and more charm, than you'd expect. Now you can take a virtual look around, or go spend the day here, and see why more and more locals and ex-pats are considering it an unexpectedly terrific living option.
Situated in North West London, Wembley is increasingly finding itself on the map when it comes to diversity- take food for example. Boxpark Wembley, sister to its original Shoreditch location is now open in the area bringing international street food to Wembley. We love this indoor market of bars and food stalls, and there are so many fantastic food offerings from around the world to sample here. We could easily spend at least a week trying all the delicacies in this indoor market space! They also hold live events which celebrate the local art and music scene.
Boxpark aside, there are so many fantastic coffee shops, restaurants and bars in Wembley to explore. The area is really coming alive with new and unique approaches to eating and we can not get enough of them. Wembley has long been known for its Indian restaurants. Thoroughly popular (and deservedly so) among them are Mumbai Local for its fully vegetarian menu, and Sakoni’s, which has been serving quality, inspired vegetarian food since 1984.
Looking for great coffee by the day, and cocktails by night? Go have a gander at the highly recommended Black Sheep Coffee, enjoyed not only for its delicious drinks but for the way it morphs seamlessly from day to night, taking its drinks and vibe with it. We simply adore a place where we can just flow directly from coffees to cocktails without even having to move from our chair.
Art & Culture
Wembley may not spring instantly to mind when London’s creative scene is being discussed. But there is a lot going on here that encourages and inspires local artists. Wembley Park and Global Street Art recently launched their own collaboration, bringing street art from local and international artists to the Park, with a commitment to making art accessible to all. We also love the space and opportunities the Wembley Park Market provides to local and independent vendors and business owners in the area.
Located in Zone 4, Wembley has plenty of great transport links to keep you connected to the whole of London. It is home to both Wembley Park and Wembley Central train stations. Wembley Park is on the Metropolitan and Jubilee lines, meaning fast access to the centre of the city when needed. There is also a national rail link out of Wembley Central, should you ever need to venture outside of London to the rest of the UK. Wembley Central is also on the Bakerloo line.
