Wembley Park has everything you need this festive season.
Wembley Park is a buzzing new area in north west London, boasting a multitude of designer stores, independent shops, restaurants and entertainment venues. We’ve rounded up the very best things to do in the area in the lead up to Christmas.
1. Immerse yourself in the Winterfest Christmas light trail
Winterfest, Wembley Park’s first ever immersive winter light trail, features magical installations from artists all over the world. Combining lights, sound and touch, these artworks create an incredible, multi-sensory experience. Highlights include the acclaimed Sonic Runway, which has come straight from Nevada’s Burning Man Festival, and The Hopeful Tree, London’s tallest ever LED Christmas tree. Best of all, Winterfest is entirely free to visit.
2. Do some last minute shopping
Wembley Park is an excellent spot for a shop, especially if you’re looking for some last minute Christmas presents. With 70 high street stores within the London Designer Outlet (LDO) and a great community of independent traders at Wembley Park Market, you’ll find everything from Kurt Geiger shoes to sustainable bamboo toothbrushes.
