    Was offered last minute tickets to see to see Taylor Swift (yeah yeah :p) this Friday at Wembley, the Yellow and Red car park is full, where should I park? There seems to lots of 3rd party options but are they safe and which one do you guys recommend?

    We always park in the large general car park right by Wembley Stadium. Never had to book, just turn up early enough. Think is was about £25 the last time we went. Just make sure you get back to the car ASAP otherwise you'll be queueing for about an hour on the surrounding roads before you can get properly on your way home. Reading about the empty seats there will be, perhaps the traffic won't be so bad when it's finished.
    Most of the businesses offering parking along the roads leading to the stadium look OK, although some appear to pack the cars in so you could be blocked in until others have left.


    Edit - looking at the website, the car park I've always used may now not be much a car park. Most of it appears to be under construction, so perhaps no help for you, sorry.

    depends where you live, and which direction you are traveling from

    we came from bloomin' miles away so ended up parking up in one of the huge train car parks and getting the tube straight to Wembley

    The streets around the outlet mall (eg. Wembley Hill Road) have pay & display which will be cheaper than paying car park prices. If you're patient enough you can drive around those streets and find a spot, go to a pay & display machine to get a ticket.

    Both red and yellow car parks are full. Noobcannons suggestion is the best imo. Nice little stroll up Wembley Way in the summer weather.

    I've been to big events there and tried car and train. The roads were gridlocked on the way out so I wouldn't recommend that. Train is the best option but be prepared for a massive queue into the station entrance.

    Last time I booked parking in a nearby school and walked up. I've also used JustPark on someone's driveway in London and that's been fine too.

    I thought you were in London, why would you not just get the tube?

    I parked at that school (one down a dead end?) when we went to an England game, turned out the school forgot and nobody turned up to let open the gates, the locals down the street allowed us to park on their driveway.

    Second time I went I just parked at the car park for the stadium.

    I'm not far from Wembley, got a tube station just round the corner.

    Think it's 7 or 8 stops too Wembley park, you can park on my drive if you want.

    And you'll only charge a tenner? ;)

    That's a nice suggestion, if I were doing this, I'd take up this offer.

    It is a question of:-

    Paying £15.00 and park 10min walk away

    Vs

    Paying £10 park miles away then spend money getting the tube in and out to the car


    I know getting out will be chaos but so is getting on the Tube and the time it takes, it may work out the same both options.
