Wembley Stadium tour and visit to BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir
Wednesday 27 March 2019

Wembley Stadium   completed in 2007 is crowned by a 134metre arch which has become one of London's iconic landmarks. We will be taking the 90 minute award winning tour of the UK's largest sport and music venue which will include the new 'Crossbar' Exhibition and 'The Walk of Legends' before a guided tour behind the scenes of the stadium.

A short drive from Wembley will bring us to lunch whic will be taken at the Shayona Restaurant in the Neasden Temple grounds. Here we will sample an authentic vegetarian Thali Buffet and have an opportunity to shop in the adjoining food store.

Our guided tour of the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir, Europe's first traditional temple, will follow and there will be an opportunity to visit the Haveli cultural centre and the gardens. The Temple has been designed and constructed according to ancient Vedic architectural texts; no structural steel has been used and the 500 tonnes of Carrara marble and limestone were shipped to India to be hand-carved by 1500 skilled artisans before being assembled back herre in Neasden in 1995.
