Where is Wembley Park?
Located in West London, our Wembley Park apartments are just 12 minutes from the city centre.
The development is well connected by public transport, with Wembley Park tube station right on our doorstep. The Jubilee and Metropolitan lines both serve the underground station, meaning you can get all the way back to your apartment from the city centre without ever needing to change trains.
Plenty of buses go to the area too, including night routes, so you’ll never need to worry about being stranded with no easy way to get home.
It’s also fully accessible by regular roads, with free parking for residents and additional parking for guests. As this is London, this also means you’ll be able to get to and from your destination by taxis and ride-hailing apps, as well as with ZipCar rentals.
There’s also everything you need to get your essentials nearby, including:
- Multiple supermarkets such as Sainsbury’s, Co-op and Asda
- An IKEA, for all your move-in furniture needs
- A post office
On top of this, the area is also well served with schools and nurseries, so those with children can rest assured there are excellent education options nearby.
What is there to do in Wembley Park?
There’s a simple, one-word answer to this question: lots.
Wembley Park is close enough to the city centre that you can enjoy all London has to offer, from open-top bus tours past world-famous sights like Tower Bridge and Buckingham Palace and some of the best museums in the country to the simple joys of dinner and drinks by the riverside.
And Wembley Park itself is bursting with exciting activities for those days when you want something a little closer to home. We won’t list every single activity individually as this blog post would end up being 50 pages long - but we do recommend you regularly check out what’s on as there’s always something happening!
For the time being, we’ve broken our favourite activities down by category to highlight just some of the different kinds of things you can do in and around Wembley Park.
Relax and explore
It might be surprising to hear, but the UK’s biggest and most bustling city is also one of the greenest in Europe, with acres and acres of parks all within the city limits - and a lot of that green space is in and around Wembley Park.
Holland Park is a great space for families, with an adventure playground and an enclosed play area for toddlers. Chiswick House and Gardens has open ground and a cafe, as well as a stately home with attached landscape gardens, dating back to the eighteenth century.
West London is also home to the River Brent, with nearly seven miles of walking trail to take you all along the banks, including past one of the area’s most well-known attractions, Wembley Stadium - home to the England national team, as well as site of some of the country’s biggest gigs and shows.
Work out and care for yourself
If you want to take care of yourself and stay healthy in a more structured setting - and are looking for something a little more strenuous than a walk - have no fear. Wembley Park has more than enough on offer to keep you active and moving.
The area has a range of gyms and fitness classes, as well as a surprising amount of yoga, including:
- Conventional yoga at MoreYoga
- Hot yoga at 37 degrees at Ruislip’s Hotpod Yoga
There are also martial arts classes available, from karate and taekwondo to MMA.
Quintain Living residents also get access to a range of residents-only fitness classes - and a gym and fitness space in everything building!. More than just a way to stay fit and healthy, these classes are wonderful for getting to know your neighbours - all without ever needing to step outside the wonderful Wembley Park apartment building that is your home.
Shop and have fun at Westfield Shopping Centre
Finally, the area is also a great place to get some retail therapy, with Westfield Shopping Centre in nearby Shepherd’s Bush offering everything from luxury brand retail to a cinema, a kid’s play area and a range of food options.
Whether you want cosmetics and clothes, sports gear to take to one of the many fitness classes in the area or just a collection of great gifts and accessories to browse, Westfield has you covered.
The Vue Cinema in the complex is another key attraction, with a huge range of movie options on show across 20 screens, to ensure that you’ll never be short of something to watch.

Where can I eat at Wembley Park?
BOXPARK has a lot of great places to eat, of course, but Wembley Park has far more to offer over and above that. The area is well served by apps like Deliveroo and Just Eat, if you want to stay in and order. But there’s also a lot to enjoy about going out.
Here are just three of our favourite places to eat in the area.
Open from brunch through to the evening, Masalchi is great for everything from a quite bite to a full meal.
The cuisine is inspired by street food from all over the Indian subcontinent, all put together with intention and style by chef Atul Kochhar, who has earned a Michelin star for his skill with spices and different styles of food.
The White Horse
For traditional pub grub served in comforting, warm and welcoming surroundings, look no further than The White Horse.
The kitchen here is open from midday to 10pm every day, with a range of options from hearty lamb and steak to vegetarian specials. While there’s homely and hearty fare available here, there’s also dishes for those with more exotic palates, with Head Chef Suraj Thapa Magar a master at uncovering new and exciting tastes to add unique colour to well-loved classics.
Finally, for some of the most luxurious European-style fine dining in the area, The Association is the perfect spot to treat yourself.
Anthony Roy is the Executive Chef at this French-inspired establishment, and he oversees a menu that includes everything from pork belly and grilled calf liver to a wide range of delicious desserts.
We hope this list of things to see, do and eat in and around Wembley Park has got you excited - but this wide range of food, drink, shopping and activities is only a taste of what the neighbourhood has to offer!
