Answered By: 
The Mayor

London Underground is aware that Stanmore station car park experiences a high level of demand on Wembley Stadium event days. However, at other times the car park is rarely full. Therefore it would not be good use of use of its funds to increase the size of the car park

In developing a travel plan for Wembley Stadium events, LU worked closely with the Stadium and NCP to provide a limited number of guaranteed, secure parking spaces for certain events at number of Metropolitan line car parks. These are at Watford, Croxley, Chorleywood, Ickenham, Hillingdon and Ruislip stations.

This information is advertised as part of Wembley Stadium's travel advice and customers are advised to book in advance via the NCP website at http://www.ncpwembleyparking.co.uk/.
