Hi all, i'm looking to travel from Premier Inn, Heathrow Airport, Bath Road, TW6 2AB to Wembley Stadium on the morning of 30th August getting to wembley for about 11am.

Whats the best way to get there, as far as i'm aware theres no direct tube/bus, maybe a taxi would be best?

Thanks Phil.

Get on the underground from Heathrow airport to Ealing then get a bus from Ealing to Wembley

TFL has a journey planner, if you put in the post code from where you are staying to Wembley Stadium it will work it all out for you

Thanks for the reply, when i use the journey planner, it tells me to,

Walk to Oxford ave, take bus 105 to Greenford, then at southall rail station take the heathrow connect to paddington rail station, then take bue 83 from stop H to Golden Green, then a 13 min walk to wembley stadium, it seems a bit complicated to me. How much do you think it would cost in a taxi, there is 4 of us so splitting the cost is ok.

It would cost about £40 each way according to this site.

It would be cheaper if you are worried about public transport changes to get a taxi to the tube station (Hatton cross seems to be nearest your hotel-2 miles away) get on train to Green park one change onto the Jubilee line to Wembley park station, which has a Bobby Charlon walkway (with art on the walls) down to the Stadium (about 5 mins walk). You need a zone1-6 day travel card £7.00 each, which you purchase fron the train station ticket machine. You can then use this on all tubes and buses in London for the day, so after your event you can use it to visit any other attractions/places you would like. There is not a great deal on around Wembley, with police hearding people onto public transport and it is best to travel elsewhere for celebrations (guessing you are a footie fan). it should take about 1 hour on the train including platform transfer time.

Get the train to Ealing Broadway from Heathrow, takes about 20 mins
Then the No.83 to Golders Green which goes via Wembley Stadium, takes about 45 mins..... (not that complicated) print off the train/underground map:

take the 140 bus from heathrow to northolt park, then get the train to wembley stadium. I live in between and would suggest this is the quickest route.

All the travel links from both Heathrow and Hatton Cross tubes (which is slightly nearer and a few stops on the same line as Heathrow) are good, but as Heathrow is nearly 3 miles from you and Hatton cross 2 miles away from your hotel- it is just a matter of getting to the nearest tube/bus. As you are not familar with London I feel it would be easier to use the tube, to ensure you get off at the right stop. Above the seating on the tube is written a list of the stops you can count down.

Please follow this advice :

Firstly get an Oyster card, from Oyster Sales it will cost you £3 but you can keep the card forever. I reccomend you purchase a £10 top up with it . You can top up by any amount at all tube stations using machines or the counter, and some newsagents in London.

This will enable you to make the journey below:

Ok from outside your hotel, you should be very close to, (even be able to see from your hotel entrance/exit) bus stop 'H' (bus stops can be identified by the red plate with the white letter inside it, sticking up from the shelter/stop sign).. (see this map for the bus stop info Map)You should wait for bus 111 which will be traveling towards "Heathrow Central" this is a 24 hour service, and runs about every ten minutes in the day time. (Timetable) You will need to stick your arm out when you see the bus approaching. It will stop and the doors will open. You should board and touch your Oyster card on the Yellow reader near the driver. The machine will beep once, and show a green light. The info screen above the reader will show how much has been deducted and how much remains on your card.

You will travel on this bus for approx 11 minutes. You will get off at the final stop, which is Heathrow Central bus station. You can not miss your stop as it is the last one, and also the on-board announcements and information screen will inform you when the next stop is Heathrow Central.

Then follow signs directing you to the Underground station. You will then need to touch your Oyster card on the yellow reader (located on the ticket gates) to enter the tube system (you need to touch your Oyster in whenever entering the system, and out whenever exiting- this will open the ticket gate to allow you to pass). You will need to take a Eastbound Piccadilly line train, towards Acton Town, Cockfosters, Arnos Grove, Hyde Park Corner or Wood Green. These run about every 3-4 minutes in the daytime.

The journey time is approx 23 minutes to Acton Town station where you will get off that train. Your train will arrive on either platform 3 or 4 at Acton Town. You will need to go up the stairs and across to platforms 1 and 2, where you will look out for a train to either Rayners Lane, Ruislip or Uxbridge. You should keep checking the platform screens and the front of the train to make sure you board the correct one. This train will take you to Rayners Lane where you will get off. These trains run every 10 minutes and the journey time is approximately 19 minutes long.

At Rayners Lane, you will need to climb the stairs and cross to the other platform (there are only 2 platforms here so you cant get this bit wrong). You will wait for a Metropolitan Line train, which will show either Wembley Park, Neasden, Baker Street, Moorgare or Aldgate on the front. These trains run about every 8 minutes in the day time, and this journey will take you about 12 minutes. This will take you to Wembley Park station where you should leave the train! You will then be at your destination.

The journey overall is about 1 hour 20 minutes, give about 10-15 extra for connections etc... about 1 hour 30-35 in total. Not that bad. The very maximum this journey will cost, when using your Oyster card is £4.30 (for adults) (provided you don't travel in the AM rush hour) this will cover your return journey as well.


Obviously to return to your hotel just reverse the directions. You will also need to start your return journey by 23:50 from Wembley (the last train you can get from there in order to make the connections at Rayners Lane and Acton Town is 00:00hrs) in order to make it back using this route.

The TfL journey planner may advise you to use bus services for much more of your journey than I have stated, and may quote this as being quicker. But believe me... the roads, traffic etc are not great round those areas, especially on event days. I certainly would not use the buses for any more than I have stated above (unless travelling home after tube opening hours)

Hope this helps.

Unhappy Bunny it was kind of you to post such a detailed journey for the OP.

Just a note for the OP £4.30 capping on the Oyster covers zones 2-6 (Heathrow in 6 and Wembley in 4). You will be charged more if you go into or via zone 1 (any Central London Stations-Green Park in my post is in Central London)-zones 1-6 will be capped at £6.50 with an Oyster -50p saving on a travel card (your intial outlay will be more than the travelcard as £3 deposit, but you can either get a refund from open ticket offices if under £5 on card or send off for a refund) .
