Living at Wembley Park
Alive at Wembley Park
Wembley Park continues to host the world’s greatest sports and entertainment events, however what has really changed is the ‘every-day’ life, as it has benefited from £900 million of investment, with the same amount again committed to the area.
Seven million people a year now visit the 70 stores, 20 restaurants and nine-screen cinema at London Designer Outlet (LDO) .
There is a weekly food market and a range of fun and unique events. You can submerge yourself in a kaleidoscope of colour at Holi Festival or Color run or test your fitness at the Survival of the fittest challenge. If you want to take things a bit easier, you could relax at the Mela, see a film screening or marvel at the annual fireworks display, or you can just enjoy the free performances that take place.
Wembley Park also has a lively community space called the Yellow Pavilion, which offers a wide range of events and classes. You can practice the art of Muy Thai, learn how to double treble at a crochet class or discover some of Wembley Park’s emerging talent at the Open mic night.
Wembley Park is now a vibrant, buzzing neighbourhood with something for everyone to enjoy. If you haven’t visited the area for a while, you really should come and see the transformation for yourself.
Wembley Park is a commuter’s dream. The Jubilee and Metropolitan lines only take 12 minutes to Baker Street, 19 to Bond Street and 32 minutes to Canary Wharf. There is also Wembley Stadium station on the Chiltern Railways route into Marylebone, and Wembley Central, which has the Bakerloo line and London Overground services.
What people say
Dan a Tipi resident on the area
Wembley Park wasn’t top of my list and it had been a few years since I last visited the area. However I was surprised at the development work going on in the area. Plenty of local amenities and shopping venues on the doorstep. It is out of the hustle and bustle of central London yet has excellent transport links and can get me to most destinations within 25 mins. I’ve lived in London for six years both as a student and as a professional and Tipi is the most stress-free way of living that I’ve experienced – I didn’t think I would ever say that about London. It’s the first time I’ve felt like I have a home in London.
Ciára on the social space at the Yellow Pavilion
As a Londoner I’ve always regretted the lack of community in my city; London can feel cold and lonely sometimes as people barge past each other to get from work to home. The Yellow Pavilion is vital in breaking down London’s social barriers. It is a vibrant place with lots to offer; from sport and meditation to arts and crafts. The staff are friendly, as are the variety of people who take advantage of everything it has to offer.
Aygul a Tipi resident on renting in Wembley Park
Tipi is nothing like we’ve seen before. It provides the out-of-the-box solution for people who want to enjoy hotel-inspired life in London today. Our favourite features are our gorgeous fully-furnished apartment with built-in appliances from Bosch, 100% online management, all bills included rent (including high speed Internet), 24-hour concierge, onsite gym and cinema room.
It was a no brainer, really. Tipi is officially awesome! We were looking for a stylish apartment in a new, modern development but didn’t want to deal with private landlords. Having a truly professional team at Tipi makes everything so much easier! Another advantage is that all bills are included in the rent. No need to worry about paying for water, electricity, heating, and Internet separately. Tipi takes care of everything! Having 24-hour concierge service is also really useful. Moveover, we’re enjoying the lounges with Sky TV and pool table and outdoor areas.
Discover North West London
Wembley Park is in the perfect location to access some of the great things going on in Brent and Wembley Park have pulled a list together of some of the more quirky must do’s!
Catch an independent flick
The Lexi Cinema is an unassuming movie theatre in Kensal Rise and is a perfect place to catch an independent film. With a wine-and-beer-serving bar at the back, it’s a great place to relax, and the jewel in the crown is that it is a social enterprise, which means all profit goes to support Eco village Sustainability Institute in South Africa.

Get anything you want!
In the real world there are very few times in your life where you can have whatever you want, but step into The Shop NW10 and normal rules go out the door. Although that does depend on whether the door has been sold before you get there, as this quirky little cocktail bar allows its patrons to buy anything they want in the space, other than some permanent fixtures like the walls and the bar itself.
The Shop NW10 | 75 Chamberlayne Road, Kensal Rise, London NW10 3ND
Indulge in some creativity
Hidden away near Willesden Green Library Centre is Brent Artists Resource (BAR). The Gallery houses a wealth of established and emerging talent and is well worth a visit. They also offer a co-working space for hire.
4-5 Queens Parade Walm Lane London NW2 5HT
Watch a play
With a reputation for showcasing the rich multiculturalism of the local community, The Tricycle in Kilburn brings some of the best, hardest hitting and enjoyable productions to Brent. The venue incorporates a cinema and a café, and offers plays that you will not see anywhere else.
