London’s five major airport have direct flights to and from most locations across Europe. The choice is all yours! If you can, try to find flights going to the airport closest to your accommodation to reduce your travel time once you arrive.
London has frequent services to all corners of the country from the city's mainline railway stations, run by a set of private train operating companies. With a multitude of stations to choose from, you can travel across the country without a hitch.
If you're coming from Europe and aren’t a fan of flying, the Eurostar train is a great option. Its terminal, St Pancras International, is also perfectly located in central London.
Travelling to and from London by coach is simple and cheap. There are a number of direct options to major cities across the country, and you can even travel to and from other locations in Europe. Take a look online to see if travelling by coach could be a good option for you.
Make sure you’re comfortable with doing things the other way around, as in England they drive on the left-hand side of the road.
Note that Wembley Stadium will not provide parking for private vehicles during the event. Your best bet will be to use Park & Ride facilities.
Let me give you a top tip:
If you have limited mobility or additional needs, please inform your airline or travel agent and let them know about the kind of assistance you need. You can do this either when booking your flight or closer to your travels, but make sure it's at least 48 hours before you start your journey.

Transport from the airport
🚆 By public transport
All of London’s airports are served by public transport connections to the city centre. Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted airports also have dedicated express trains to the city centre.
🚖 By taxi
Fully licensed black cabs run from all of London’s airports; rates may vary.
🚗 By rental car
Keep in mind that there will be road closures around UEFA Festival sites, the stadium and major attractions. Parking options are limited - we recommend sticking to public transport to get around in the city. If you do rent a car, make sure you’re familiar with the local traffic laws and comfortable driving on the left side of the road!
Transport in the city
🚇 By public transport
London has one of the most extensive public transport systems in the world, the London Underground is a brilliantly efficient and easy way to get around the city.
Tap in and out with your Oyster card, travelcard or contactless card when you enter and exit the tube stations. The city is served by 11 tube lines and your fare depends on the amount of zones you travel through (nine zones in total). Note that the tube service usually runs from 5am until midnight, but since 2016, the Central, Jubilee, Northern, Piccadilly and Victoria Lines operate a night tube service on Friday and Saturday nights for all night owls out there.
The city’s iconic red double-decker buses will get you to every corner of the city and are an excellent way to make your journey a sightseeing tour. Night buses run all night to get you home after hours.
Let me give you a top tip:
Public transport stops can be far apart, so try to plan ahead if your walking capabilities are limited. Check out Transport for London’s accessibility guide to plan your journey ahead of time.
🚗 By car
If possible, avoid using the car in the city – driving will take you significantly longer than any other mode of transport in London. There will be road closures around UEFA Festival sites, the stadium and major attractions. Parking for private vehicles will not be available at the stadium. You’ll also be subject to congestion charges if you drive within certain, central zones.
🚖 By taxi
In London it’s fairly easy to flag down a black cab, and there are also a number of private operators who have apps to request a ride. In any case you can ask your hotel reception to help you call a taxi. Note that it’s probably not the most economic way to get around and rush hour can delay your journey considerably.
