Why Wembley? The ongoing transformation of one of London’s most iconic areas

By Steve Taggart

Wembley Park is one of the most significant regeneration projects in London and the area is being transformed to create a thriving neighbourhood with excellent transport links to central London.

New public spaces, shopping and leisure facilities have already opened, alongside the four star Hilton London Wembley hotel, the landmark Brent Civic Centre and new library. The latest phase of apartments at the area’s North West Village are now available for purchase, so now is a fantastic time to find out more about this exciting new London location. Five lesser-known facts about Wembley are listed below:

Attractive London Living

Emerald Gardens, the first phase of North West Village is a collection of high-spec new apartments designed for open-plan contemporary living. Each apartment has a private balcony and the properties are set in an acre of landscaped gardens. Wembley Park is already a vibrant and established place to live with some truly unique facilities on its doorstep.

Prices in Emerald Gardens range from £295,000-£650,000 and there are studio, 1, 2 and 3 bedroom properties available for sale off-plan through Savills. As well as a great environment to live in, the area also offers a compelling investment opportunity. North West London recorded strong growth over the last few years, with the London Borough of Brent registering double digit growth in the 12 months to August 2014.

Connectivity to London and beyond

The wider Wembley area is served by three tube lines at Wembley Central and Wembley Park, two overground lines at Wembley Stadium Station and Wembley Central as well as numerous buses. These fantastic links mean that the Wembley Park apartments are only 19 minutes from Kings Cross St. Pancras, 20 minutes from the West Endand a mere 32 minutes away from Canary Wharf.

For drivers, Wembley Park is also a short 5 minute drive to the A406 North Circular. From there, it’s easy to get to the M1, M40, M25 and on to other parts of the country.

 Events hub

Large-scale events such as ‘Color Run’, ‘Holi One’ and ‘Survival of the Fittest’ are increasingly being hosted in Wembley Park’s many versatile spaces, and the number of people enjoying these events is expected to exceed the 120,000 participants who did so last year. In 2014 over 400,000km – more than the distance from the earth to the moon – was run in total during the active events held on the site.

Events in the area aren’t limited to running either; The SSE Arena, Wembley attracts some of the biggest names in music, with Maroon 5, System of a Down, Queen and Nickelback all scheduled in for 2015.


The area is home to the capital’s only outlet shopping centre, London Designer Outlet. It boasts more than 70 shops including Kurt Geiger, LK Bennett, Gap and Nike, all offering as much as 70% off their high street prices.

London Designer Outlet also features numerous restaurants, a nine-screen cinema and a playpark.

 The Stadium

Wembley Stadium has 90,000 seats and its iconic arch is the world’s largest unsupported roof structure. As well as the England Football team’s home Euro 2016 qualifiers and international friendlies, Wembley Stadium will also be hosting two Rugby World Cup 2015 games, as well as a number of concerts including Foo Fighters, ACDC and Ed Sheeran this year.
