    Its cheaper to tap your card. As you will only be going to and from Wembley.

    The Thameslink train was always my go to option from Gatwick but I'm a bit out if the loop. Nearly as fast as the express but way cheaper

    Never been to London before. Can anyone advise the best 2 or 3 airports so I can price them up? Also what's the best way to get to the stadium on the day? Any advice appreciated

    None of them are that great for Wembey really you're looking at between 1hr and 1.5hrs by public transport. Pick the flight times and price that suits the best

    Using Gatwick, Thameslink train to London Bridge then Jubilee Line to Wembley Park myself. 1hr 20ish incl walk to stadium

    A different route would be National Express (A6 route) to Finchley Road £4 single then just one stop to Wembley on the Metropolitan Line.

    Not sure about the viability of this route for a return journey.
