Visiting Arsenal Football Club Emirates Stadium

Updated on September 23, 2014

How to Visit Arsenal Football Club. What You Can See Even On A Non-Match Day

How to get to the Emirates Stadium, what to expect, what to see and what you should organize beforehand. This is intended especially for tourists on pilgrimage to Arsenal Football Club. Unless they are lucky enough to have a ticket this is what you can see when Arsenal are not playing at home.

Obligatory Photo In Front of Arsenal Station Sign

When you arrive at Arsenal Underground Station on the Piccadilly Line , it will be necessary to take a photo next to station sign (wait for the crowd to leave). Fans flying from abroad can catch the Piccadilly Line directly at Heathrow Airport.

Arsenal Tube Station on the Piccadilly Line - From Kings Cross Station or Finsbury Park to Arsenal Tube Station

Tourists and out of towners mostly likely pass through Kings Cross Underground before arriving at Arsenal. In fact the previous station Holloway Rd is probably more convenient but Arsenal fans will most likely want to arrive at the eponymous Arsenal Tube Station.

What to Do on a Non-Match Day at the Emirates

  1. Visit the Arsenal Museum
  2. Visit the Gunnery Souvenir Store
  3. Join a Arsenal Ground Tour

    You almost certainly need to pre-book this. Try to get Charlie George as tour guide

  4. Visit the nearby former Highbury Stadium
  5. Bring Sandwiches and a Flask of Coffee
  6. Bring your Camera
  7. Visit the Composite Team Photo of all Arsenal Players ever
  8. Buy a Cheap Day Travel Card

    You can then take virtually any bus or tube

It was a cold non-match day but there were small groups of fans coming to worship at the shrine. I think the group in the photo are from Malaysia.

      I visited the old one!

      It's always possible to tell the sites created by true fans! Blessed and added to The Best of the UK (in Travel/uk)

      Some suggestions to make it even better! How about including a link to the Transport for London website so that people can work out the best way to get there? I'm finding that the Google Map module showing the location is also very useful. It's probably also worth mentioning the complete ban on parking all around the ground on match days.
