Home to the England national football team
Wembley Stadium & Arena
Wembley Stadium, home to the England national football team. What had been Wembley Park hosted the British Empire Exhibition of 1924–1925. With a 90,000 seat capacity, this is the UK’s largest stadium, and Europe’s second largest. The original stadium was the venue of the 1966 World Cup final.
The Wembley Arena, known now as OVO Arena Wembley opened in 1934, originally as a swimming pool, the Empire Pool (1934-1978). The 12,500-seat concert venue facility is London’s second-largest indoor arena after The O2 Arena.
The onsite parking facility is the open-air surface parking surrounding the eastern flank of Wembley Stadium and the multi-storey car park. These are called Green Car Park and Red Car Park.
“I’d love to play at Wembley. It’s special for Barca, and for everyone in football.”
Ace Cafe London
"The Vic's Caff'!"
The iconic Ace Cafe London is the place for rockers, bikers and drivers to hang, admire marvellous machines, and recharge. Ace Cafe London hosts an array of monthly cars and bike meets. On the busy North Circular Road in Wembley, the transport cafe opened in 1938. It was open 24 hours, and soon became popular with truckers. Before attracting motorcyclists. And home to the legendary 59 CLUB.
The club became an instant success when Church of England curate and founder John Oates secured teen star Cliff Richard to play at its opening night on the 2nd of April, 1959.
Sir Cliff Richard returned often to the club over subsequent years, and it attracted Princess Margaret, her husband Lord Snowdon, actor Dame Elizabeth Taylor and later many motorcycling sportsmen and musicians. Its trustees included Bishop Trevor Huddleston, the famous anti-apartheid campaigner. For British motorcyclists, it was famous for being one of the first places in the UK to preview the previously banned biker movie The Wild One, in 1968.
The 59 Club attracted both male and female members and, according to Father Graham Hullet its success was based on its almost entire lack of rules. Besides motorcycles and 1950s rock and roll, the club involved activities such as football and sub-aqua diving—which gave the youths, mainly from underprivileged backgrounds, an outlet for their energy. Each year, the club organised ride-outs to famous winter motorcycle rallies such as the Dragon Rally in Wales, the Elephant Rally at the Nürburgring in Germany, and to the Isle of Man TT races. The 59 Club Barbeque still occurs every year at TT in Laxey, on the Isle of Man coast.
The 59 Club started as a church-based youth club on 2 April 1959, in the East End of London. In 1962, after a visit by Father Bill to the Ace Cafe, a motorcycle section was established in Hackney, the motorcycle section soon outgrew the youth club.
Motor Cycle staff writer Mike Evans in 1963 reported: “Ably managed by the Rev. Bill Shergold, the club is affectionately known by London riders as ‘The Vic’s Caff’!”.
Father Bill remained chairman until he passed in 2009. iChauffeur co-founder Andy Senior was a keen biker in the sixties. And like Father Bill, passed in 2009.
