Boxpark Wembley at Wembley Park

Wembley Park set to transform into an al fresco dining destination

Wembley Park is going continental as the iconic neighbourhood is transformed into an al fresco outdoor dining destination.

To celebrate the reopening of cafes, restaurants and leisure operators following a three-month closure, Wembley Park and Brent Council have been working closely together to allow expanded seating areas onto the tree-lined boulevards.

With over 100 new and colourful, socially distanced picnic tables and benches being installed onto the pedestrianised boulevards, we’re enlivening the neighbourhood in the safest way possible, enhancing the outside space and ambience with a programme of live entertainment and public art.

Launching at the height of the British summertime, the transformational plans are set to make Wembley Park the hottest drinking and dining destination of Summer 2020, as the shift to al fresco dining gives the vibrant North West London neighbourhood the opportunity to offer local residents and day-out visitors an incredible casual dining experience - one that is accessible and safe.

Expect to see street food extravaganza Boxpark Wembley, Bread Ahead bakery and baking school, Pasta Remoli and Black Sheep Coffee reopen their doors on 4th July, as well as London Designer Outlet’s plethora of high-street staple restaurants and eateries, including Nandos, Pizza Express and Wagamama.

The distanced outdoor seating will allow you to enjoy dining out once again, whilst being reassured that your safety is being looked after with COVID-safe solutions, such as distanced dining tables, frequent hand-sanitising stations and sign-posted walking routes to allow plenty of space to maintain social distancing.

Better yet, to allow visitors to enjoy Wembley Park whilst avoiding public transport, we’re offering three hours free parking in our Red and Yellow Car Parks. To find out more about parking in Wembley Park, click here.
