I am looking for somewhere to stay overnight on a budget in order to attend a match at Wembley Stadium. There will be four of us - two adults & two older children aged12 & 14 (the next day).
We've managed to get cheap tickets to see Liverpool vs Barcelona pre-season match but as my husband predicted getting to London & staying there is making it expensive.
This B&B/hotel is definitely ticking several boxes but is it near enough to Wembley? It sounds like public transport will be really busy so we will walk to the Stadium if it's not too far.
Any tips please for someone who only visits the capital occasionally.
Just walk North to bus stop EM (near the NW corner of Ealing Common) and catch a #83 bus straight to Wembley Stadium, stop SD.
Takes about 40 minutes, but might be longer when its busy.
I'd choose this option because there are no changes to make once you're on the bus, you can just sit back and watch the view until you get off! :-)
ps: Try to get rooms at the rear of this place. It's quieter - and for good pubs, look for The Grange and the Sir Michael Balcon nearby.
You cannot easily walk from the hotel to the stadium for sure (5 miles). Tube or bus is more suitable, however they are expected to be crowded on days with sporting events so leave early.
Hiya, we visited this hotel earlier this year. The nearest tube station is Ealing Broadway and is only a 10 minute walk away. The actual tube journey from there to Wembley Park is about 40 minutes long. The TfL website suggests the Central Line to Bond Street, then the Jubilee Line to Finchley Road and finally the Metropolitan Line to Wembley Park. Although this seems like a lot of travelling the tubes are so easy to use and you can purchase an all day pass on the weekend for £12 an adult which allows unlimited travel across the 4 zones of the tube map.
Hope this helps
