| Wembley is bounded on the south and east by the River Brent and the A406 North Circular Road, separating it from Neasden, Willesden and Park Royal.To its west and northwest are Sudbury and Harrow. To the north it is separated from Kingsbury by Barn Hill Open Space and Fryent Country Park. To the east lies Hendon.
It is the most ethnically diverse area of London, and like most of the borough, South Asian, Afro-Caribbean, Irish, Somali and Polish communities make up the area's majority. In recent years, there has been considerable re-development, particularly around Wembley Stadium and in the town centre.
