Wembley is fast becoming one of the hottest new London locations to explore, and what better excuse to wander through these parts than the long bank holiday weekend?

Whether you are keen to discover some tasty new dishes, check out an art exhibit or two or simply sit back and enjoy the (hopefully) beautiful weather, we have got a brilliant line up of activities for you to enjoy.

Here are just some of our recommendations.

Get lost at Wembley Park

With world-famous landmarks and tree-lined boulevards, a burgeoning food scene, affordable designer brands and quirky independent shops, there’s never been a better time to spend a day exploring all that the Wembley Park has to offer. 

Known as London’s most exciting cultural neighbourhood and only a 12-minute tube ride from Central London, you’ll have enough to do for a week, let alone three days. With plenty of outdoor space and multiple al fresco dining options, this is the perfect setting to watch the world go by.

Into the grounds of the Neasden Temple

One of the great landmarks in Wembley is the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir. Known locally as the Neasden Temple, it’s a masterpiece of traditional Hindu design and exquisite workmanship that  stands out in London's iconic skyline.

As the temple itself is currently closed, the community is still encouraging visitors into the grounds to admire the temple from afar and to also taste their traditional cuisines. In the grounds you’ll find Shayona, where the flavours and aromas of a multitude of Indian and east-African regions combine. Try the Gujurati all-you-can-eat thali buffet – we promise you’ll be glad you made the trip!

One in Four

Have you found yourself longing for a bit of artistic inspiration lately? Why not take a day this bank holiday weekend to inspect the One in Four public artwork display, by North-East based spray can artist Frank Styles?

The artwork, commissioned in collaboration with mental health charity Mind, and installed prior to the lockdown, aims to raise awareness about mental health, a topic that has only increased in importance since the COVID-19 pandemic.

Boxpark Wembley

Back this summer for your entertainment and culinary pleasure is the infamous Boxpark in Wembley. With increased social distancing measures now in place, Boxpark is not only bringing us fabulous and flamboyant street style food, refreshingly fruity summer beverages and that buzzing pub garden atmosphere, they are throwing in a few bank holiday events too.

On Saturday, Boxpark is welcoming all Arsenal fans to its screening of the FA Community Shield on Saturday 29th August – tickets available here – while on Monday, the film club is hosting a kids club special movie as well as a viewing of Rocketman. Tickets can be purchased online here.
