Having been to 79 stadiums around Europe over the years Wembley does not even come into my top 10, hers my reason why. Ticket prices are shockingly high! For the League one play off final (3rd tier of English football) the FA want to charge me £88 for me and the wife and £37 for my 5-7yr old to get half decent seats or just a fraction less. I paid silly before but I be doing again, so £250 for a family of 4 to watch a football match. The match programme will cost me £5 then food and... (read more)

well it was a pretty tidy stadium but i have seen better like brunton park. like where i was sitting was nothing like the paddock at brunton park, the atmosphere is electric there, also the southampton fans were plop. well all i can say is theres no match for the brunton pasty. also the toilets were pebbledashed at wembley, also i was floating in urine, brunton parks toilets are checked regularly every 4 minutes on a matchday. no plop in sight.

I felt i had to comment here to counter the overwhelming bad reviews. I have visited Wembley twice, one for a test match with England under 16s and a few weeks ago to watch Muse. Both visits were fantastic. The stadium is like nothing else in this country or abroad, and retains the old magic with the mesmerising arch. the staff are well-organised and friendly, and whilst catering is expensive, it certainly didn't ruin my day and both events i attended have been fantastic, thanks in part to...

The stadium on the outside looks good, modern. Inside? terrible. it still looks unfinished. Whats the point in having a retractable roof if it doesnt cover the pitch? Also, the seats? all red and boring. the least they sould have done is designed 3 lions in the seating or even the St georges flag! would have looked neather and had a more English feel to it. The "WEMBLEY" behind the goal lools like kids have put the seats in. the roof? still looks unfinished and like a building site.... (read more)

having only visited for most of the England football games I can only comment on the fanatsic acoustics of the cheering and unfortunately some booing. Access is easy and have enjoyed unobscured views from all over the stadium. The catering is expensive - but at the competitive FIFA & EUFA matches there is no watery carlsberg onsale anyway (ruling) so dont get there early to enjoy a pre-match pint or two. (read more)

Overpriced food and drinks. Terrible choice on offer. £4.00 for a carlsberg (Basically poor quality fizzy liquid). You can't get water unless you pay...bloody cheeky.
The catering area and walkways are as dull and uninspiring as an airport lounge. At least the pitch is as close as it can be and the sound in the actual stadium is amazing.
However, I just get the feeling that you are being fleeced. Which is appropriate. The management treat you like sheep and hope that you won't complain... (read more)

I saw Girls Aloud, Jay-Z and Coldplay here. I was on pitch standing. Had a great view and a great atmosphere. Top marks all round. Sound quality was excellent too. (read more)

I was also at the Coldplay gig last Friday, my 4th visit to our "national stadium". As a result I was only too aware of the shortcommings with regard to catering. However, this time around I was lucky enough to have seats in the "club Wembley" section so thought maybe things would be a little better. How wrong can you be? A 40 minute wait for chicken and chips in a box - no cutlery available (not even plastic) - £8.50. Then £4.00 for a warm flat beer in a plastic beaker.
I hate this... (read more)

Saw Coldplay live here at Wembley Stadium on Friday the 18th of September, and had the WORST seats ever for a Concert, about half a mile up in the air, right up at the back of block 501, row 40, close enough to touch the roof almost. With the result the sound was pathetic all round, and the view was dreadful too. Not a pleasant venue to visit in fact, and I agree with a lot of other comments on here about the price of catering, and its quality, just one big rip off all round is my opinion. I... (read more)

I didn't go to wembley with the intention of eating out but because coldplay had scheduled their gig across most of an afternoon and evening it became necessary to try to buy food there.
If the cost of the stadium was, at the time of completion, deemed by some to be a national scandal then the state of caterring on offer is nothing short of a scandal of galactic proportions.
What do you start? Just attempting to sum it up in words is a struggle, such is the pittifully low standard of the... (read more)

The quality of the food available at Wembley is a disgrace. Think of the top ten of junk food and that is all that is available. We could not find one wholesome item of food to buy and the junk food served in a pathetic box was over expensive. What a shame the experience of seeing a brilliant U2 concert in brilliant surroundings was spoiled by rubbish catering. (read more)

Been to see Oasis at Wembley. The band were superb. The stadium a disgrace. For as far as the eye could see boring concrete and derelict land. It looks like the money ran out and they all walked away leaving the job unfinished. Yes the architecture is stunning but thats what modern stadiums are and should be. The infrastructure though at Wembley is appalling. Overpriced catering vans and nowhere to sit while you wait for your event. Still the dreadful transport links and scandalously high... (read more)

Go there and experience it yourself, for me words cannot justify what a superb stadium it is. It looks superb, there is not one bad view, the atmosphere seems to be improving now and it's just breathtaking. The prices of the food is pathetic (read more)

I have just been on the Wemley Stadium tour and have left with the opinion that there is something missing.
I would recommend the tour but the first impressions are that the Millenium Stadium is better.
The arena is fantastic but still does not have that WOW to it.
The corporate and royal areas resemble just that and don't appear to have that extra mile.
The entrance areas behind the glass resemble an airport.
The players areas including changing rooms are ok but all the pictures in... (read more)

In my opinion, the staff are badly organised and don't seem to care.
I was trying to get to my seat before the England v Croatia game and the steward sent me the wrong way, so I asked another steward who also tried to send me the wrong way. So I went to go back in where I originally went and then the steward said I could not enter as the national anthem was on so I managed to miss the national anthem, but what made it worse is the steward seemed to find this rather amusing to my dismay and...(read more)

Myself and and three friends had the pleasure of seeing Muse in concert at Wembley stadium on 16th June 2007.
The stadium is easy to find from any direction.
We had seats in Block 125 and had a fantastic view of the stage. Seats were comfortable and not at all cramped.
Good access for those with disabilities.
All staff we came in contact with were friendly and helpful.
Take plenty of money for refreshments as they are dreadfully expensive. Don't expect particularly tasty food either.... (read more)

I am a very tolerable person and not normally the sort of person who takes effort to complain about services but in this case the service at Wembley Stadium was so
abhorrently bad (and even hostile) that I am thinking about taking some sort of action. (read more)
