Distance between Wembley and Central London

Hi there,

We are heading to London and will be staying in Wembley. We were wondering if Wembley is close to Central London and how you would go about getting to Central London.. i.e distance, trains, times etc. and would you consider it to be 'close' to Cental London (major attractions etc.).

Also wondering if it is expensive to get into CL from Wembley..

Thanks.

It's about 10 miles.

This site -

www.tfl.gov.uk

can tell you all the many options for getting to and from central London. There are several tube and train lines, not to mention buses, cabs (pre-booked), and taxis (usually black and hailed on street and charged by a meter).

I would not consider Wembley close to central London. It is in the suburbs, and its main claims to fame are a big football stadium, IKEA, the North Circular road, and Neasden FC.

Have a look at the Transport for London website, www.tfl.gov.uk and pull up the Tube map. Also you can look at www.multimap.com and print off maps of the relevant parts of London.

Don't judge by distance - judge by time it will take to get from a to b

Wembley to Westminster for example is about 40 minutes by Tube

In fact Wembley Park (likely to be the nearest tube station to your hotel) to Westminster will take less than half an hour so it's not too far out. Wembley park is in zone 4 so a one day off peak Travelcard is £6.30, only 70 pence more than one for just the central two zones.

If you let us know exactly where you are staying then we may be able to offer further assistance.
