Everyone should drink as close to Wembley as possible. It will be great and full of Villa.

Train to Marylebone is thirty quid return from Moor Street, or at least it was last night when I booked.

If driving up and back on the day and coming in from the West........ Intu Centre @ Uxbridge (just off M40). Probably cost 6>10 on a Saturday
...or Hillingdon Tube Station

If driving and staying in London, park at Westfield Shepherds Bush. Sign up ahead of time for 'Smart Parking' and it's just 6 per 24 hours

I think the closures affect the FA Cup Final but not ours. Checked the TFL site and travel from Marylebone to Wembley, at least, is fine.

For you northern types* unfamiliar with London, use this Tube Map rather than the official one

Coaches from pickups and drop-offs across the midlands available here -https://zeelo.co/rides/aston-villa/aston-villa-fan-travel-for-the-play-off-final-15124, we'll be watching the match and flexing the departure time after the match so you don't have to leave the celebrations early

We have run services to Villa Park throughout the season, so if you've used Zeelo before you know what sort of service you'll get!

Train from Moor St stops at Wembley for some services. I'm sure they'll amend the service so most, if not all stop at Wembley as they did for the FA cup semi final and final.

As for pubs, we have the West side again which we always seem to have. So Green Man and theres a wetherspoons. Both were popular last time with Villa fans. If you want to drink in London centre, there are direct trains from Baker Street to Wembley, plenty of pubs to chose from around there but will imagine that it will be mixed with Fulham because of its popularity.

If you move 600 - 800 yards west along the Uxbridge road the side streets have free parking on Saturday - I know as i live there! Easy to get out on the A40 - M40 after too.
