We are going from loftus road to Wembley straight after the game on Saturday.Can anyone tell me the quickest way to get there please?
I normally get on the tube at white city after games so I don’t know whether it’s possible to get a bus there in reasonable time?There is a bus stop on Wood Lane but I haven’t got a clue what buses stop there or where they go.The tube will take too long,so bus or cab looks like the only way to get there in 35 mins.
Unless anyone is passing by in an empty minibus of course.

Google Maps directions says any public transport is going to take at least 60mins
IF you need to be there urgently after the game either leave a little earlier or if your budget stretches to it jump an Uber from the Whit City end of Sth Africa Road.
Otherwise jump the central line out to Hanger Lane and then get an Uber from there to Wembley if no buses are imminent

Yes, indeed:

I think that's your best bet if you are going to Wembley Stadium. The starting point is the nearest station to Loftus Road and the finish is the nearest tube to Wembley Stadium. As with so many journeys across London you have to go in before you go out.

Wood Lane to Baker Street - Met line to Wembley Park - 2 stops. Good game this.

One map that can be very useful in planning journeys is TfL's accurate map.

TfL has (secretly) made a geographically accurate tube map

Train from Shepherds Bush Overground station goes to WembleyCentral direct at 54 minutes each hour, other times change at Willesden Junction. The direct train takes about 25 minutes.

Still need to add 20 mins for the walk from there though.

Traffic is always heavy after a match and with Wembley sold out think I would stick with the tube, and avoid the cab idea, but as others have said that won't get there for KO!

The Citymapper app is a godsend for things like this. It's brilliant, use it all the time and I've ended up taking buses all the time on routes I never knew existed. Works in New York, Paris, other cities as well.

Anyway, according to Citymapper at 4.50 on Staurday your best bet is 220 up Scrubs Lane from outside White City to Willesden Junction, Ginger Line Overgroud to Wembley Central.

37 Minutes. Bosh.

We walked there from loftus road in 2014.We floated back.
Thanks for the suggestions.Its only 5 miles away,but I’m a bit old for jogging it.
The tube option takes too long,so Uber it is then.Hopefully it won’t be a close game on Saturday and we won’t have to stay around for high ho Queens Park Rangers.

BUT as I said above plus 20 mins walk to the stadium = the same time as the tube route!

In all seriousness that's probably your best bet to get there quickest.

A lovely cycle too: up that massive hill on Scrubs Lane while all the juggernauts full of scrap metal overtake you, quick diversion through Harlesden as all the friendly locals are taking to the streets for a lively Saturday night, through scenic Stonebridge, negotiate the North Circular somehow, then dodge through all the main road traffic jams and crowds of Wembley while still going uphill on a bike that weighs half a ton.

You'll get there in a great mood

We left 1 minute after the boro 2nd goal and quickly made our way to Wood Lane and jumped on a 220 bus to Willesden Junction,but I hadn’t allowed for the traffic.
We took our seats at Wembley at virtually 6pm,so a journey time of roughly 90 minutes,not the 32 that tfl were advertising on their website.
I gather we didn’t miss much at loftus road.

Lucky you left HQ early then, otherwise you would have missed the whole game at Wembley. I watched the second half on BBC and I bet you wish you hadn't bothered,
