Wembley is an area located in North-West London, England which forms the northern part of the London Borough of Brent. It is located 8 miles (13 km) north-west of Charing Cross.

Wembley is the location of the English national football stadium, Wembley Stadium, and the Wembley Arena, a major concert venue. The area has been called the most diverse in the UK, with large populations of Asian, Afro-Caribbean, African, Irish, South American and Eastern European people [http://neighbourhood.statistics.gov.uk/dissemination/LeadTableView.do?a=3&b=5942241&c=wembley&d=14&e=15&g=328291&i=1001x1003x1004&m=0&r=1&s=1207501094578&enc=1&dsFamilyId=47] . It is also home to Fountain Studios where hit shows such as The X Factor & Britain's Got Talent are filmed. Despite having the stadium and large economic benefits that come with it (such as many four star hotels), Wembley is considered to be one of the poorest areas in West London.
