What is it like? As Spurs are building a new stadium, the club play all their home matches at Wembley for one season.
Around 3,100 Swans fans will be in the South-East corner in the lower tier. The catering includes pies, pizza slices, hot dogs, nachos and chicken dippers. The concourses have betting counters plus plenty of TVs and programme stands.
Pubs and Grub There aren’t many pubs near the stadium. JJ Moons (HA9 6AA), a Wetherspsoons, and the Green Man (HA9 8DF) are both near Wembley Stadium station, while the Torch (HA9 9AB) is near Wembley Park tube station. They will be packed long before kick-off. Some pubs may be home fans only.
Most fans will drink in the central London, or by tube stations on the way around Harrow on the Hill, Watford Junction or Ruislip.
Parking The stadium is a public transport destination, so there is very limited parking at the stadium plus a residents-only parking scheme in the area. It is best to park at tube stations at the end of the Metropolitan line (Uxbridge, Hillingdon or Ruislip) or at Stanmore on the Jubilee line and take the tube.
Train/tube The nearest tube station is Wembley Park, a 10-minute walk from the stadium. This is served by both the Jubilee and Metropolitan lines. Wembley Central is slightly further away from the stadium and has both rail and tube connections. This tube station is served by the Bakerloo line, whilst the railway station is on the London Euston-Milton Keynes line. The nearest train station is Wembley Stadium.
Fans should be aware that Network Rail’s engineering work will take place on in the Reading area this Saturday and Sunday, which will impact services operating through the Thames Valley area.
