With the 20th Century Society, we will be exploring how Wembley has grown since the start of the 20th Century and how its buildings help fuel the growth of "Metro-Land".
Starting at the site of the former British Empire Exhibition (1924), we will see the changing face of Wembley from Owen Williams’ 1934 Empire Pool (now Wembley Arena) to the new Brent Civic Centre by Hopkins Architects.
We will then see the old Brent Town Hall, now an International school, before exploring the modernist influenced housing of the Haymills estate on the slopes of Wembley Hill, by Welch, Cachemaille-Day and Lander.
We will then finish off by passing by a few of Wembley’s lesser known modernist buildings before returning to Wembley Park Station.
