Booked into the Ibis near Wembley stadium - only £70 for the night and no need for me to queue with the hordes for the Tube after the match. Cool

Booked the Novotel Wembley. 700 metres from the stadium. Flight with BA Dublin to Heathrow were very reasonable also.

As someone who has somehow avoided London for the last 28 years of my life, any recommendations for areas to stay? Looking to make a long weekend of it Fri to Mon

The crowds getting on to the tube queue really quickly after the game so I wouldn't let that put you off.
If it was me and I was looking for late pints then I'd be heading back into London.

My suggestion would be somewhere central. Kings Cross, Euston, even towards. From Baker Street you are at Wembley stadium in around 15 mins on the tube. Plenty of spots central for late pints if that's what you are after. Most bars by Wembley would be closed by midnight.

More than likely Wembley. Italy and Hungary games were at Molineux because they had a one game stadium ban and had to play another at reduced capacity because of what happend at the Euro 2020 final IIRC. I'd be suprised if they moved us elsewhere given this one is the only one that would be the most likely to sell out in the group. Finland and Greece more likely to be moved elsewhere

They've only moved when Wembley was booked for a gig and when uefa punished them.

It'll be in Wembley

Load of us stayed in Watford the last time. Was good fun and easy to get to Wembley.

late drinking is always a problem in London in general.

Took a gamble and booked a flight back from Heathrow at 21.15. Any chance of getting there on time with public transport or is it an Uber job?
