Wembley Park Property Guide
Wembley will forever be an iconic area of London because of the sporting stadium that shares the same name. But the 90,000-seater isn’t the only cause for excitement in the HA0 and HA9 postcodes. Many modern homes form part of an extensive £2.5B regeneration program that is reshaping the local area.
Wembley Park Street Art Project
Wembley Park has partnered up with Global Street Art to transform the area with creative designs. Street art from local and global artists has brightened up Wembley Park, bringing even more new culture to the area. One of the featured artists is world renowned Mr Doodle, who has created an installation of quirky characters by hand, stretching across nearly 30,000 square feet! There’s also the Wembley Park Hoarding Jam, where 100 local school children have created their own street art across a 40m stretch of hoarding, set against the backdrop of Wembley Stadium. The Project is a great display of community, and an indication of how Wembley Park is flourishing!
Food and Drink
Boxpark has come to Wembley. Famous for its Shoreditch location which fuses pop-up boutiques and delicious street food in the world’s first pop-up mall, Boxpark provides a fresh way to experience market culture. Boxpark Wembley is the third iteration of creator Roger Wade’s modern street food, events and leisure concept, and focuses on bringing the hottest street food to north west London. There are three massive bars, a wide variety of food stalls ranging from mouth-watering burritos to gourmet desserts, a 300-capacity club room, an upstairs games area, and the main space can be used as a 2000-capacity events venue. Boxpark hosts regular events including Premier League live screenings, comedy events, short film screenings and music/club nights to suit all music tastes.
If you fancy something different, there’s also a host of restaurants at the London Designer Outlet, which is also very handily just a five-minute walk away. The collection of over 70 shops, restaurants and a cinema upstairs are all part of the semi-outdoors shopping centre. For those of us who love a good bargain (and really who doesn’t?), all the shops are at outlet prices meaning big discounts of places like Nike, Levi’s, Hamley’s, Tempur and, I’m told, a whopping 70% off of Haribo.
And if it’s homeware on your shopping list, don’t forget that Wembley is one of the few lucky London spots to house an Ikea (complete with a crèche), so you can stock up on tealights or furnish your brand new flat (see below) from top to bottom.
Wembley Park is the perfect neighborhood where you will be able to relax after a long day at work, in total tranquility. Here you’ll have plenty of space to do just that, from tree-lined boulevards to perfectly manicured pocket parks, where you can chill out with a book, or simply watch the world go by. Take Elvin Gardens, a leafy, tranquil green haven perfect to sunbathe and picnic, with lush lawns, colorful street art and even a purpose-built dog run. Or Weaver Walk, an oasis of urban calm right next to Olympic Way, where you'll find a host of fitness and wellbeing independent shops, including More Yoga, Chop Chop London and bike shop Twenty3C. Relax on one of its oakwood benches to the sound of their water features. In Arena Square, you’ll find Wembley Park’s popular illuminated fountains, where you can sit back and enjoy the water display, while taking in the majestic views of Wembley Stadium and the Grade-II listed The SSE Arena, Wembley.
