Wembley Train

Sunday 7 April: Chiltern Railways travel advice for customers attending Wycombe Wanderers v Peterborough United at Wembley Stadium

Chiltern Railways is asking Wycombe Wanderers fans to check their journey before they travel as they head to Wembley Stadium for the Bristol Street Motors Trophy Final. 

The operator is expecting high volumes of passengers to travel to the event, and has changed its timetable to help cater for the significant number of additional passengers expected to travel between High Wycombe and Wembley Stadium.  

Customers who are planning to travel to this event using Chiltern Railways services are advised that there will be no trains to Wembley Stadium before 11:00.  

An enhanced service with additional and longer trains will operate from High Wycombe, Beaconsfield and Gerrards Cross to Wembley Stadium from approximately 11:00 and then for the rest of the day - including the return journey after the match. 

Customers are advised to arrive at High Wycombe station after this time to travel to the event and a queuing system will be in place before the match to manage crowds safely. 

Customers should purchase tickets in advance on the Chiltern Railways website or app to avoid long waits at ticket offices and machines. 

To facilitate the high volume of customers travelling between High Wycombe and Wembley Stadium, no Chiltern Railways services will operate between Marylebone – Aylesbury Vale Parkway (via Amersham) all day, with rail replacement buses in place to Amersham for onward connections to central London via the Metropolitan Line. London Underground are also scheduled to operate a ½ hourly direct service between Amersham and Wembley Park.  

After the match, a queuing system will be in place at Wembley Stadium station and, despite additional services, it is expected there will be extended waiting times due to the number of customers leaving the venue at the same time. Those who do not want to queue may wish to consider alternative forms of transport or consider travelling later in the evening. 

Customers are asked not to board services from Wembley Stadium to London Marylebone to try to pick up a train back to High Wycombe, unless they intend on staying in central London. All additional trains to High Wycombe will start from Wembley Stadium, meaning that minimal capacity will be provided from London Marylebone. 

Customers using Chiltern Railways but not travelling to the match are advised that services will be significantly busier than usual before and after the event. 

Chiltern Railways would like to wish The Chairboys the very best of luck in the Bristol Street Motors Trophy Final, and thank travelling fans in advance for their patience and understanding on what will be a busy day on the Chiltern network.
