Taylor Swift’s ‘The Eras Tour’ set to dazzle Wembley this summer

Global superstar Taylor Swift is set to return to Wembley Stadium this summer with her highly anticipated ‘The Eras Tour.’ Wembley will host Swift for eight dates across June and August 2024, marking her first performance at the venue since 2018. These shows will set a new record for the most performances at any European venue on this tour, matching Take That’s eight-show run in 2011.

Joining Swift under the iconic Wembley arch will be American rock band Paramore, along with special guests Mette on June 21st, Griff on June 22nd, and Benson Boone on June 23rd.

Getting to Wembley Park

Wembley Park is easily accessible, located just 12 minutes from Central London and served by three London Underground lines (Jubilee, Metropolitan, and Bakerloo), mainline rail (Chiltern Railways and Southern Railways), London Overground, and numerous bus routes. Wembley Stadium is an eight-minute walk from Wembley Stadium station, a 10-minute walk from Wembley Park tube station, and a 22-minute walk from Wembley Central tube station. On-site parking for 3,000 cars is available, including 39 electric vehicle chargers, with pre-booking advised on event days.
