Wembley concert

I am travelling with my daughter to a concert at Wembley stadium, travelling from Liverpool and staying at the premier inn.

Looking for the best route as my daughter will not travel on the underground under any circumstances as she some problems.

We were going to travel into Wembley central this is main line so will avoid the underground, but wondered what opinions you have on this as it looks a long walk to the hotel.

It's not a massive walk, though depends if you have to go in a specific entrance. Wembley Stadium station is closer on the line from Marylebone.

Which hotel? There are a multitude of Premier Inns in London. Wembley Stadium is an overground station, there is no underground there. Wembley Park is the underground station.

The hotel is 150 mtrs from the stadium, and was told the only overground train into Wembley was Wembley central, the rest were underground leaving London thats the bit we cannot do unfortunately unless l have been given the wrong information

The train from marylebone to wembley stadium is not an underground service it is an overground train run by the Chiltern Line. It is overground the whole way with the exception of a short tunnel as you leave Marylebone Station.

Where are you starting from in London? If you are coming in from Liverpool you will come into Euston station. From there you can get a bus to Marylebone ( number 18 from stop F)

The train to Wembley Central does start from Euston but there is more of a journey at the Wembley end. If you take this route you could walk it but if you have bags I would suggest getting a bus from wembley central towards your hotel.

In case you weren't aware a lot of the underground is actually over ground! For example both the jubilee and metropolitan line from wembley park to Finchley road is completely overground. I'm not suggesting you take this route as it will take longer to get to Finchley road by bus etc, but it might be worth knowing in case you get stuck.

Just a thought (and I haven't checked out how this would work with train times etc) but if the only place you are going is Wembley then you could look into the option of avoiding central London altogether.

The Chiltern trains that run through Wembley Stadium station head to Birmingham. Possible you could get the train from Liverpool to Birmingham New Street, walk to Moor Street (not very far) and then get on the Chiltern train towards Marylebone which calls at Wembley Stadium station.

Your hotel is right next to Wembley Park tube station so it would be much easier if you could take a Metropolitan line tube service from Euston Square which is five minutes walk from Euston. This line is what they call "cut and cover" meaning that it's just one story down and there is, by tube standards, plenty of light. The trains are also new and airy.

The alternative trains routes (Euston to Wembley Central or Marylebone to Wembley Stadium) also have tunnels and you will added the added hassle of then getting a bus from either station to you hotel.

As adamhornets says there are tunnels of some form for all your travel options to Wembley.

The tube to Wembley Park really is the most convenient way to get to your hotel.

As a compromise you could get the 18 bus from Euston to Baker Street. This is very straightforward and will take about 10 mins max on one road. This will avoid the tube underground for 2 stops

At Baker Street take the Metropolitan line. This platform is one flight of stairs down and if you walk to the front of the platform you are in the open air. It is then only 1 stop underground to Finchley road ( 2 minutes) and then in the open all the way to Wembley. The new met line trains have no dividers between carriages so you can walk through the whole length of the train , which might help with any feelings of claustrophobia.
