Useful Information for Your Visit to Wembley Stadium
Wembley Stadium is huge, with a capacity of 115,000 for concerts and 90,000 for sporting events. Here are a few tips to make sure that you enjoy your visit to Wembley Stadium.
Take the train
One of the best ways to get to the stadium is to take a train – just make sure you give yourself some time so that you don't miss the event! If you prefer to drive, make sure to book in advance, as there's very little parking available at the venue. While there are a few parking garages nearby that take bookings on event nights, you should factor in the time it will take you to walk to the stadium.
Check your block
Wembley Stadium is divided into blocks, and your best point of entry depends on which block your seats are in. Keep in mind that the seating blocks vary, with some involving several steps, and others in standing sections. Some of the blocks are very steep and not recommended for those with a fear of heights.
Always buy your tickets from an authorized merchant (not the hawkers at the gates) and make sure to buy them early as they tend to sell out.
