How to get to Emirates Stadium

Getting to Emirates Stadium is easy, no matter where you’re travelling from. There are three tube stations within walking distance of the stadium. Arsenal train station on the Piccadilly Line is just three minutes’ walk from the grounds, whilst Finsbury Park (on the Victoria and Piccadilly lines) and Highbury & Islington (on the Victoria line) are both around a ten-minute walk.

Alternatively, you can take the train to Emirates Stadium. Finsbury Park is a Great Northern rail station and Highbury & Islington is on both the North London Line and Great Northern rail. There’s also an overground stop at Finsbury Park. If you’re coming from London Euston, the most direct route for getting to Arsenal stadium is to take the Victoria line to Highbury & Islington, then a short walk to the grounds.

There are also multiple bus routes taking you within a ten-minute walk of the stadium, and there is secure bike parking if you want to travel on two wheels. Driving to Emirates Stadium is strongly discouraged for everyone other than blue badge holders.

What to do at Emirates Stadium

Emirates Stadium is the home of the Premier League football club, Arsenal, and it plays host to the club’s home games. It also hosts UEFA Cup games, for which it’s known as Arsenal Stadium, and has hosted numerous international friendly football matches.

As well as football, Emirates Stadium is used as a conference centre, and it hosted a summit between Gordon Brown, then the British Prime Minister, and Nicolas Sarkozy, at the time the French President. It’s also been used to host auditions for The X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent, and it was featured in Celebrity Masterchef in 2016.

The stadium is also a concert venue, and the first band to play here was Bruce Springsteen in 2008.

About Emirates Stadium

Emirates Stadium is the fourth-largest football stadium in England. With a capacity of 60,260, it comes behind Wembley, Old Trafford and Tottenham Hotspur Stadium - although the capacity is increased to 72,000 when used as a music venue.

The stadium was completed in 2006, replacing Arsenal’s former stadium Highbury. Since 2009, it’s been going through a process of “Arsenalisation” to make it a “visible stronghold of all things Arsenal”, including a shrine to all Arsenal players since the club’s formation, and murals of the greatest moments in the club’s history.
