Live the Wembley life
It may be known across the globe for its football stadium, but Wembley is also a wonderful place to buy a home in London. Particularly when you take us up on an offer such as our Movemaker scheme, which can help to reduce the stress of moving home and save you a small fortune to boot.
Things to see and do in Wembley
Wembley Stadium is doubtless the town’s main attraction, having been rebuilt to reopen in 2007 with 90,000 seats and a sweeping arch which frames the local skyline. As well as England internationals and other major sporting events such as domestic and European cup finals and international tournaments, some of the world’s top musical acts have also performed at the famous arena.
Other local highlights include Paradise Fields, Horsenden Hill, Barham Park and the spectacular Shri Vallabh Nidhi Mandir Hindu temple. With Fryent Country Park just to the north and Brent Reservoir and the Welsh Harp Open Space also within walking distance from Wembley Park, there are also some wonderful natural spots to enjoy in the area.
There are some excellent schools which cater for all or part of Wembley, including St Joseph’s infant and junior schools on Waverley Avenue and Chatsworth Avenue respectively. Both of these schools are rated as outstanding by Ofsted, along with East Lane Primary and North Wembley’s Byron Court Primary.
Outstanding secondary schools include Michaela Community School and Wembley High Technology College, where pupils can go from the age of 11 to 19. Ark Academy is also an outstanding all-through mixed school, while Ark Elvin Academy is another good option.
Wembley transport links
As you’d expect from an area with a world renowned sporting arena, Wembley is well served by public transport links. As well as a selection of bus routes, there are a number of train and Tube stations, with Wembley Park offering services on the Jubilee and Metropolitan lines.
North Wembley is connected to the Bakerloo line and Overground, while Wembley Central also offers Overground and Southern train services. Neighbouring Sudbury also provides access to the Underground’s Piccadilly line.
The Wembley property scene
The redevelopment of Wembley has seen it emerge as a genuine cultural hub with great places to grab a bite or drink. The local housing market includes a selection of new apartments in Wembley Park and the town centre, complementing the Twenties and Thirties properties which are prevalent across the area.
As Wembley continues to reinvent itself as a great place to live, homes such as the stunning 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments you can find along Watkin Road are set to prove a sound investment. So give us a call today to secure your viewing, and don’t forget to ask whether you could benefit from great offers like the London Help to Buy scheme when you do.
