As we approach 2020, Voice of London will highlight the key points for anyone wanting to visit Wembley Park. Not only is it an exciting place for tourists, but also a cosmopolitan place to live and work in.

The transformation of what is to come is without a doubt inspiring however, the development that has taken place in the last decade is unmissable. With 7,000 new homes, 200 additional nursery places and over 8,000 new jobs, this is one project that is proving to be successful.
Stated in MyLondon News, Retail director of Quintain, Matt Slade, said: “This is one of the first times in the UK that shared spaces have been at the heart of the thinking on such a massive scale. We’re also creating facilities for the creative arts to flourish and for start-up businesses to prosper.”
We asked the public how they feel about the regeneration. Here’s what they had to say:
Here are a few places that you should check out when visiting Wembley Park:
