Wembley Stadium : General Background
There won't be many football fans unfamiliar with the trials and tribulations of the building of the new National Stadium at Wembley. It finally opened at the end of the 2006-07 season and Yeovil Town and Blackpool were lucky enough to be the 11th and 12th clubs to play at the new venue. Now we return again, aiming to go one step further than we managed that year, with the Tangerines winning 2-0 and only a few years later sat proud in the Premier League.

Yeovil never made the old Wembley, the closest being two Semi-Final losses in the F.A. Trophy in 1970-71 and 1971-72.

This is the right-hand side as you look at the plan, starting roughly at Blocks 101/201/501 and working around to Blocks 122/226/526.

Wembley Stadium : Directions To The Ground
General

Wembley is North-West London, with Ealing to the South, Ruislip to the West, Harrow to the North and Willesden to the East. Gates at Wembley Stadium open at 11.00a.m.

By Road

The simplest routes in from the M25 are: on the M4 and then up the A406 (Hanger Lane); on the M40, then A40. If coming down from the North at the end of the M1 take the A406.

Parking

You are strongly advised to consider this issue before you depart. If you decide to do your own thing and hope for the best on arrival you could spend a long time driving round and round getting nowhere. In general terms the area around the stadium for a considerable distance is simply out of bounds. You'd be fortunate to find on-street parking within a couple of miles. A strictly enforced Residents Only parking scheme is in force when there are events on.

Probably the most sensible option, unless you're prepared to stump up the ridiculous prices at the stadium itself, is to park up at a station on one of the tube/train lines serving Wembley and then training the last part of the journey. Most of the tube stations further out from Wembley Stadium have got station car parks that are fairly cheap on weekends, plus there's the advantage that it's a Sunday, so even if they're full some of the surrounding areas around those stations will have free or cheap parking. Expect to pay around 1.50 on a Sunday for 24 hours parking. Then catch the underground for the final leg.

There are some industrial estate carparks around the area which rent out spaces at weekends. How dodgy these are will vary. Use at your own risk

Stadium Parking Charges are realistically only for those taking coaches, or for those with money to burn. These are as follows: Coaches: 63.50; Cars: 27.75. Book via CSP Bookings or by calling 0208 900 2405.

By Rail

There are three lines from the West Country up to London. The slow (up to Basingstoke anyway, after which it can pick up a bit) but cheaper one carrying South West Trains which goes through Yeovil Junction and terminates at Waterloo. The faster but more expensive First Great Western into Paddington, for which connections depart from Pen Mill. However the service up from Pen Mill is completely hopeless on a Sunday, and if a resident of the Yeovil area you'd need to drive up to Castle Cary to get a departure at a sensible time. Finally there's the South West Trains line from deepest Dorset, which is about the speed of a three-legged tortoise up to Bournemouth, but a very good service after that. This also goes into Waterloo.

The South West Trains services running from Yeovil Junction to London Waterloo have been enhanced slightly to cope with the 2012-13 Play-Off Final visit. The standard timetable only realistically allows you to catch the 07:32 (arrives at London Waterloo at 10:11) and the 09:32 (arrives 12:04). However, South West Trains have extended the standard 08:54 service from Gillingham so that it starts at Yeovil Junction, leaving at 08:32. This service reaches London Waterloo at 11:04. So in summary we have:

Yeovil Junction: 07:32 10:11 London Waterloo
Yeovil Junction: 08:32 11:04 London Waterloo
Yeovil Junction: 09:32 12:04 London Waterloo

There are no visible service extensions west of Yeovil - for example the first train leaving from Crewkerne is the one that gets into Waterloo at 12:04hrs.

In terms of the number of carriages, the 07:32 and 08:32 trains will have additional carriages, with six carriages from Yeovil, and then nine from Salisbury onwards. For the return journey from London Waterloo, the 17:15 and 18:15 services that should coincide with most Glovers fans leaving London and heading back to Somerset, will also have additional carriages for the journey, with nine up until Salisbury, then six for the rest of the trip.

As a general warning to those planning to use South West Trains from any location during the day, their new timetable starts on May 19th 2013. In practice there are probably only minor modifications, but if you want to be sure of your times then make sure you check their website or pick up a new timetable from your local station.

Stations Close To Wembley Stadium: Three stations are convenient for the stadium : Wembley Stadium; Wembley Park; Wembley Central. The default for most Yeovil fans coming in from Yeovil Junction will be Wembley Park which is a 13-stop run on the Jubilee Line from Waterloo Station.

(a) Wembley Stadium station is on the Chiltern line. The London terminal for the Chiltern line is Marylebone station. Wembley Stadium station deposits you on the south side of the ground. If travelling from Marylebone it's the first stop. On exiting the station cross the tracks by the White Horse bridge. If coming down from the north, take the ramp from the platform.

(b) Wembley Park station, is on both the Jubilee and Metropolitan underground lines. It's ten minutes walk under Empire Way and up Olympic Way to the front of the stadium.

(c) Wembley Central station is on the Bakerloo underground line to Harrow and Wealdstone and the local Silverlink train line up to Watford. On exiting the station, turn right and walk in an easterly direction along the High Road to the Wembley Triangle junction and clock tower island. Turn left into Wembley Hill Road, cross the road and follow the pedestrian route across White Horse bridge. It'll take you about fifteen minutes to walk.

Detailed information on underground services can be found here on the Tube section of Transport for London.

LONDON ENGINEERING WORKS: Anyone who has done London on a weekend will know that London Underground love weekend engineering works. There are some closures in North-West London for the District Line and the Piccadilly Line but nothing that would generally affect Yeovil Town supporters. However, if you think you'd be using these lines, then head here and have a look at the "Future Dates" tab and pick out May 19th 2013. The main area that we can see Glovers fans being affected is if you're planning on parking your car up at Richmond or in that area. The timetable will claim that you can get to Wembley Central via Willesden Junction via the London Overground. On this occasion, you can't as the line is out between Richmond and Willesden. If you're still set on doing this route, we'd recommend that rather than take the bus replacement service, you head up to Clapham Junction where you should be able to get a connection up to Willesden, or make the full journey into Waterloo and get the Jubilee Line.

RAIL ENGINEERING WORKS: Thankfully bar the London Overground issue between Richmond and Willesden mentioned above, we can't see anything too obvious that would affect Yeovil Town supporters taking the main routes from the West Country. However, if you're coming in from an unusual route, you might want to check the National Rail website for anything happening in your area.

OTHER LONDON EVENTS: There is an England cricket match taking place at Lords on the day of the game. Hence if you are changing at Baker Street or using it as a stop-off for pubs, expect this area to be a bit more congested than normal.

By Bus

Local bus services are the nos.18, 83, 92, 182, 206, 223.

The No.18 is the service from central London to the stadium, starting at Euston Station and going via Baker Street. Get on/off at Waverley Avenue (Wembley Triangle, Copland School and Wembley Central are also alternative stops)
The No.83 connects Wembley to Golders Green and Hendon on the Northern Line (Hendon is also served by Thameslink), Alperton on the Piccadilly Line, and to Hanger Lane on the Central Line. Get on/off at Wembley Stadium Station (Lakeside Way, Cecil Avenue, Wembley High Road and Wembley Central are alternative options)
The No.182 connects Harrow and Wealdstone (Bakerloo underground and Silverlink train line) and Brent Cross (Northern Line) to Wembley. Get on/off at Wembley Stadium Station (Lakeside Way, Wembley Triangle, Copland School and Wembley Central are alternative options)

Further bus in London information can be found here.

Wembley Stadium : Food & Drink
General :

You can find lots of official spin here about Wembley Stadium.

Last season, the Play-Off Programmes cost 6.00. Prices inside the stadium are steep. As a sample of what to expect: Hot Dog: 4.40; Fish and Chips: 7.80; Soft Drinks: 3.10; Pint of Carlsberg: 4.70; Packet of crisps: 1.20 (minimum).

Please DO NOT BUY supposed 'Yeovil' merchandise from the scally traders outside the stadium. Your cash goes into their back pockets and the club gets no benefit.

Most fans will probably want to be close to Wembley from relatively early to soak up all the atmosphere and experiences of the whole day. Wembley is a poor area for decent pubs. We've tracked down eleven hostelries that are all pretty adjacent to the stadium. There may of course be others we've missed. A few are promising, most mediocre, and the odd one is included more as a warning to avoid than any sort of recommendation.

However, even though Sunday services tend to be scarcer than during the rest of the week, some fans will prefer to park up or disembark further away, eat and drink in more salubrious surroundings and tube or bus in a little later.

NOTE: The Metropolitan Police have provided a list of 'advisory pubs' for Brentford and Yeovil Town supporters. Most of the pubs within a mile of Wembley Stadium will be allocated to either one or the other set of supporters with the aim of providing a notional degree of segregation between fans both before and after the game. These are based around the idea of Brentford having pubs West of the stadium, and Yeovil having pubs East of the Stadium. We're told that this is not expected to be an enforced arrangement - as this is a low risk game, you should be welcomed into any pub of your choice provided you're sensibly behaved in any 'opposition' pub. The police and licencees are only expected to enforce such arrangements if problems materialise during the day. However, to bring clarity, we've marked each pub below as Wembley West (Brentford) and Wembley East (Yeovil) for those who plan to stick to the 'zones' the police recommend.

Local Pubs :

Crock Of Gold: A little further along Bridge Road from Wembley Park station than The Torch (below). We've only seen minimal reviews on this pub - the most positive we can find about it is "it serves beer" - a lot of people around the internet suggesting this place is going to be one of convenience, rather than of quality. Wembley East Pub.
Crock Of Gold, 23, Bridge Road, Wembley, London, HA9 9AB. Tel: 020 8908 6933. Map: Click Here.

First Class Sports Bar: Most convenient station is Wembley Park. On exiting the tube station turn right and walk about 200 yards. Pretty much what you'd expect from an average sports bar. The 'First Class' in the name is an exaggeration. Some fans have said they put their prices up if you visit them on the same day as an event. Normal Sunday opening is 12.00 noon - 10.30 p.m. No food. Wembley East Pub.
First Class Sports Bar, 125, Wembley Park Drive, Wembley, London, HA9 8HG. Tel: 020 8900 0096. Map: Click Here.

J J Moon's: The closest Wetherspoon to Wembley Stadium, about 800 yards away. Opens from 8.00a.m. to 11.00p.m. on a Sunday, with beer sales from 9.00a.m. Most convenient station for this pub is Wembley Central. Wembley West Pub.

Mannions: Most convenient station: Wembley Stadium. Irish-themed bar. No real ale, but Guinness by the truckload. Wembley West Pub.
Mannions, 313, Harrow Road, Wembley, London, HA9 6BA. Tel: 020 8902 7750. Map: Click Here.

The Copper Jug: Possible alternative to The Torch (below). Most convenient station: Wembley Park. Opens from 12.00 noon until 1.00a.m. on Sundays - no mention of an extended licence for events on their website. Wembley West Pub.
The Copper Jug, 10A, The Broadway, Wembley, London, HA9 8JU. Tel: 020 8357 6629. Website: Click Here. Map: Click Here.

The Green Man Hotel: Large single room pub with a bar area and restaurant area serving food all day every day. Children welcome up to 9.00 p.m. Opening is normally 12.00 noon - 10.30 p.m. on a Sunday, but in 2006-07 they opened the doors early. Has a huge garden - which could be useful with the sort of numbers who'll be milling around Wembley! On draught are: Carling, Carlsberg, Carlsberg Export, Stella, Guinness, Strongbow Cider. The ale is pretty depressing, with Tetley and two guests, but as we think one is Greene King IPA that just leaves the other - until it runs out. Switch and credit cards accepted. Most convenient stations for this pub are Wembley Stadium, then Wembley Central. Wembley West Pub.
The Green Man Hotel, Dagmar Avenue, Wembley Hill Road, Wembley, London, HA9 8AF. Tel: 0208 903 1441. Website: Click Here. Map: Click Here.

The Greyhound: Pretty much straight across the road from Mannions (above). Most convenient station is Wembley Stadium. Although this is a 'live' pub, their website has a banner indicating 'Proposed Refurbishment Plan' and 'The Greyhound - Opening Soon' as of May 2013. So unless you strike lucky, you can probably assume that this one will not be serving beer on this occasion. For our May 2007 visit we'd put "AVOID" against it, so maybe you're the lucky ones. Wembley West Pub.
The Greyhound, 324, Harrow Road, Wembley, London, HA9 6LL. Tel: 0208 9000 819. Website: Click Here. Map: Click Here.

The Parish: Just along from the First Class Sports Bar (above). This is another Irish-themed pub and it's small. The most convenient station is Wembley Park. Wembley East Pub.
The Parish, 120, Wembley Park Drive, Wembley, London, HA9 8HP. Tel: 020 8903 8119. Map: Click Here.

The Torch: Carlsberg, Fosters, Kronenbourg, Stella, John Smiths Smooth, Guinness, Guinness Extra Cold, Strongbow Cider. It describes Courage Best as a real ale. We'd beg to differ. Usual opening is 12.00 noon - 11.00 p.m. with food available except for the final hour of business. We are told this will have early opening from 9.30a.m. for the game. There are two bars, one of which has Sky Sports on two big screens, pool table, darts board and juke box. Children are allowed if eating, there's a beer garden and the pub is disabled friendly. The most convenient station for this pub is Wembley Park. Wembley East Pub.

Thirsty Eddie's: Was known as Eddie's Freehouse. Don't know anything, except it's pretty much opposite JJ Moon's and The Bear (see below). Most convenient station is Wembley Central. Wembley West Pub.
