Getting There By Car
Leave the M1 at Junction 2 and onto the A1, following the signs for City (Central London). Keep going on the A1 for around six miles, until you see Holloway Road Tube Station on your right. Take the next left at the traffic lights into Hornsey Road and the stadium is about a quarter of a mile further down this road.
Supporters are generally advised not to travel to the Emirates Stadium by car, as the ground is situated in a mainly residential area with an extensive match day parking scheme in operation. As a result, there is little parking at the stadium itself or in nearby streets. Some small, unofficial car parks may be open in the vicinity, but parking further out at a tube station, such as Cockfosters, may be best, and then getting the tube to the ground. The sat nav postcode for the Emirates is N5 1BU. For more information on match day restrictions, click here.
Getting There By Train
The nearest London Underground station is Holloway Road, on the Piccadilly Line. However, this is closed for up to two hours after matches, and is exit-only in the build-up to games, with eastbound trains not stopping. It is therefore advisable to use the next closest station, Arsenal, which is also on the Piccadilly Line and is about a three-minute walk from the stadium. For slightly less crowded stations that are about ten minutes away on foot, you can consider Finsbury Park (Victoria/Piccadilly Lines) and Highbury & Islington (Victoria Line).
