A Century of Sporting Glory and Cinematic Splendour: Celebrating 100 Years of Wembley

Since its opening in 1923, Wembley Stadium has witnessed historic moments and captivated audiences. From the Olympics in 1948 to the Women’s EURO’s in 2022, it stands at the centre of sports history.

Wembley’s grandeur and unique architecture have made it a sought-after location for filmmakers. It has served as an incredible backdrop for shoots, accommodating everything from unit base hires to Hollywood productions. One amazing room worth noting is the Grand Hall, which has unique high ceilings and has previously been used as an airport double by Hit TV series, Back in Action.

Wembley Stadium’s impressive design includes a 133-meter tall arch, the world’s longest single span roof support structure. With a seating capacity of 90,000, it is the largest sports venue in the UK and the second largest in Europe. The views from boxes overlooking the pitch could act as a quirky backdrop for commercials and photoshoots. 

Wembley provides ample parking options, including an exterior loading area and underground carpark. This ensures convenient accessibility for production cast and crew. Furthermore, there are plenty of restaurants on-site, offering catering spaces for members of the production crew.

Wembley’s allure continues to attract renowned productions. Most recently, the cult Anglo-American TV series Ted Lasso and Gangsta Granny (David Walliams) filmed at this iconic venue. As we look to the future, we anticipate more extraordinary moments and cinematic experiences within its storied walls. We are proud to represent Wembley and excited to see what lies ahead for this historic venue!
