Fans' Guide to the Papa Johns Trophy Final
Wembley Stadium is accessible via a range of public transport options, so driving to the ground is actively discouraged by the venue in a bid to limit the carbon footprint of those visiting. However, should you need to drive, please note the following information regarding parking:
- Event day parking at Wembley Stadium is limited and must be booked in advance via the Wembley Official Parking website. Any vehicles which do not pre-book will not be granted access to the stadium car parks.
- Please only use official stadium car parks – but book early as they fill up.
- Argyle have been allocated the “pink” car park at Wembley, which is the official car park for the team in the West side of the ground.
- There is no street parking available in local areas, as this is reserved for local residents only. For full information on the area’s restrictions on match days, please visit: https://www.brent.gov.uk/eventdayparking
- Avoid ‘pop-up’ car parks – many private car parks appear on event days, but supporters are warned against using them, as these venues may not have the correct insurance in place, so you are not covered in the event something happens to your car and the car park is at fault. These car parks are also not patrolled/do not have security and are poorly lit, which makes them difficult to navigate.
- For those looking to utilise a Park & Ride facility, please see https://help.wembleystadium.com/support/solutions/articles/7000028393-park-ride-locations-close-to-wembley-stadium- for a full list of all suitable options.
Blue badge parking is available for ticket-holders with accessibility needs and this can also be booked directly through the Wembley Official Parking website. For any further accessibility requirements, please review Wembley Stadium’s Access Information page, or visit the Guest support portal.
Supporters are encouraged to plan their journeys in advance to avoid disappointment or delay to their travel. All those travelling by rail should plan to arrive at Wembley stations no later than one hour prior to kick-off, to allow sufficient time to walk to and enter the stadium.
With the help of GWR, we have compiled a rail guide for supporters travelling from the South West. Click here to read it.
Wembley Stadium benefits from easy access to three rail / London Underground stations. These are:
Wembley Park Station (London Underground Jubilee and Metropolitan lines)
Wembley Stadium Station (Chiltern Railways)
Wembley Central Station (London Underground Bakerloo line, London Overground, London Midland and Southern lines)
Step-free access and low-level ticket machines are available at all three stations. However, Wembley Central Station is step-free from street to platform, but not from platform to train.
Wembley Park Station is only two stops from Baker Street on the London Underground Metropolitan line, and is also served by the Jubilee line for further connections across the Underground network.
Wembley Stadium Station is one stop from London Marylebone on Chiltern Railways, and Wembley Central Station is on the London Underground Bakerloo line and London Overground line from Watford Junction to London Euston.
Wembley is well served by local buses, including the 18/N18, 83/N83, 92, 182, 206, 223, 297 and 483 serving routes across North West London and to and from Central London.
You can pay for your bus fare with an Oyster card, Visitor Oyster card, Travelcard or UK-issued contactless payment card. Just touch one of these on the card reader as you board.
Supporters travelling with the official Miles Away Travel Club service, which departs at 6am, are advised to read our full departure information article here.
Alternatively, National Express services are available to take you directly to Wembley Stadium and drop off at the stadium from over 50 locations around the UK. To book a National Express service, visit the National Express website or call 08717 81 81 81.
Public transport is the best way to get to Wembley, especially during peak traffic. But if you really need a taxi outside peak traffic times, please only use a licensed cab.

You can search for licensed mini cab providers across London here.
Anyone without a ticket should not travel to the game.
Fans with tickets are advised to check they are seated in the appropriate area of the stadium. Any supporter who is identified in opposition areas will be ejected from the stadium for breaching the FA’s ground regulations and be subject to each club’s own sanctions process.

Wembley Stadium is a welcoming and inclusive venue for all guests with access requirements, and provides a range of services for guests with specialist access requirements, including a shuttle service from Wembley Park Station.
Disabled Access Shuttle
Wembley Stadium operates a complimentary shuttle service from Wembley Park Station to Wembley Stadium. The operating hours for the shuttle will vary from event to event, however, generally the shuttle will operate from 30 minutes pre gates opening to 1 hour post final whistle or the event finishing.
The shuttle runs on a rotational basis approximately every 30 minutes from outside Wembley Park tube station directly to the junction of Rutherford and Engineers way without stopping and can fit up to 10 people. The shuttle is wheelchair accessible. If guests require additional support from the drop-off point, the Customer Engagement Team operate a 'pushing and chaperone' service for guests who require additional support on the day in terms of travel to and from their seat, similar to an airport. This service is not pre-bookable and can be accessed across all events at the stadium.
The meeting point for the shuttle from Wembley Park Station is by the entry of the lift at Wembley Park tube station, adjacent to Olympic Way. The Customer Engagement Team will be on hand at the drop-off point to offer directions or any additional support required. At the end of the event, the shuttle bus collection point will be at the junction of Rutherford Way and Engineers Way and will drop off at Wembley Park Station.
Please note, the shuttle is operated by Brent Community Transport and whilst we advise on operational times any decisions on timings are ultimately made by them.
Blue Badge Parking
All parking for events at Wembley, including Blue Badge Parking, is booked via Wembley Official Parking. Please note, this is not managed by the stadium. If you have any questions, please get in touch with Wembley Official Parking directly.
Travelling by train or Tube? There are three stations serving Wembley. Wembley is on the Chiltern Railways line, which runs to and from the Midlands, Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire. London trains on this line depart from Marylebone station. You’ll find more detailed departure points here, although these may change on major event days. There are departure boards on each platform.
If you are a wheelchair user, you’ll need to call Chiltern Railways before travelling on 08456 005 165to make sure a wheelchair ramp is on standby for you.
Wembley Stadium station is approximately 740 metres away from the stadium. Use the lifts to exit the station at street level, then turn right and head over The White Horse Bridge to access the stadium.
Travelling by bus? The following buses run from Wembley Central and Wembley Park station to the stadium: 83, 92 and 182. However, on major event days it’s not a good idea to get the bus from these stations, because traffic is often very congested and some roads may be shut.
It’s worth noting that not all buses that travel to Wembley Stadium are fully accessible. Please check before you travel by visiting TFL Accessible Buses’ website or calling London Buses’ customer services on 0845 300 7000.

Persistent standing during a match at Wembley Stadium is strictly forbidden (unless with a ticket for the safe standing area) and may result in ejection from the ground. Persistent standing not only compromises crowd safety, but also affects the matchday experience of fellow spectators, especially children and elderly people.
The use of pyrotechnics, flares and smoke devices inside or outside Wembley Stadium is illegal and prohibited. Anyone caught carrying or using pyrotechnical equipment inside the stadium will be immediately ejected from the stadium, banned from future events and dealt with by police. Those caught using pyrotechnic equipment anywhere outside of the stadium will be in breach of the PSPO order and face enforcement action.
Fans are asked to leave the ground promptly and avoid opting for the last train of the day.
Please allow for longer journey times from Wembley Stadium to London mainline stations due to crowd safety controls put in place to ensure safe station access for all passengers.
