It’s in the HA9 postcode district and forms part of Greater London.

History of Wembley Park, London

The area has a long history that stretches back to the 1500s. At this time, Wembley Park was a woodland with just 6 houses! A long way from the bustling metropolis it is today.

It was in the mid 16th century that Wembley Park came into the ownership of the Page family. After this point, it underwent its very first development.

In 1787, Richard Page commissioned a landscaper called Humphrey Repton to turn the area into a country estate. It was Repton who coined the term ‘Wembley Park’; a name that has stuck ever since.

In 1802 the estate was sold to the Gray family, who spent a whopping £14,000 renovating the manor house. During their tenure, the Metropolitan Railway extended its line to Wembley Park, bringing rail links to the area for the first time. And in 1889, the Grey family sold the whole estate to the Metropolitan Railway Company for £32,500.

Under the leadership of Sir Edward Watkin, the Metropolitan Railway Company developed the park into a large pleasure garden with football grounds, cricket pitches, a golf course, a running track, a lake, pagodas, bandstands, and a theatre. It even had its own rival to the Eiffel Tower, but it only existed for around a decade.

Since this time, Wembley Park has evolved into what we know today. It hosted the British Empire Exhibition in the 20s, the Olympic Games in 40s, the World Cup in the 60s, Live Aid in the 80s, and many more events since.

Who lives in Wembley Park?

Around 31,000 people live in Wembley Park. The area is very diverse, with 32% of residents being from an Indian background. 78.6% of residents identified themselves as being from a black, Asian or minority ethnic group (BAME).
