Arsenal have played at the Emirates Stadium as their home ground since 2006, when they left the beloved Highbury Stadium. The move has sparked a consistent question for fans and first-timers – what’s the best way to get there?
In this guide we’ll be telling you just that. Whether you’re travelling to Arsenal’s home ground by bike, car, train or on foot, we will aim to answer any travel-related queries that you may have.
We will list the nearest Tube and train stations to the stadium. We’ll also list the nearest locations you can park your car or bike.
Where is the Emirates Stadium?
The Emirates Stadium is located in Holloway, North London. The exact address of the stadium is: Hornsey Road, London, N7 7AJ.
How to get to the Emirates
If you want to park up at the ground itself, you will need to book a parking spot before your journey. You will also need to book a spot before the corresponding deadline.
Below, we have included a full list of the deadlines for when you will need to book a parking space, depending on the day you will be visiting the Emirates.
- Weekend games – 9am Thursday
- Monday night game – 9am Thursday
- Tuesday night fixture – 9am Friday
- Wednesday night fixture – 9am Monday
- Thursday night fixture – 9am Tuesday
If you are unable to park up at the Emirates Stadium, you are not out of options. Outside of the club car park, the next nearest place you can leave your car is at Fonthill (Fonthill, Goodwin Street, London Borough of Islington, London, N4 3HH).
Here, it will cost you £20 to park for the day – it also a 27 minute walk away from the stadium itself, so you will need to take this into account.
By Tube and train:
Perhaps the most reliable and cheapest way to reach the Emirates is by Tube or by train – you won’t need to park a vehicle anywhere and it is the quickest way you can reach the ground.
The two Tube stops that will bring you closest to the ground are Arsenal and Holloway Road, which are both on the Piccadilly line.
There are two other Tube stops that will leave you around a ten minute walk away from the ground – Highbury & Islington (Victoria Line, London Overground and Great Northern rail) and Finsbury Park (Victoria and Piccadilly lines and Great Northern rail).
If you are travelling to the Emirates Stadium via train, the nearest train station to the ground is Drayton Park – however, it is not available on match days. As such, if you are travelling on the day of a game, you can get the train to Essex Road or Kentish Town instead.
Can you cycle to the Emirates?
The Emirates Stadium is fully accessible by bicycle. To park up your bike, you can either use the secure site near the Highbury House retail store or Finsbury Park Station.
