The Emirates Stadium at a glance

The Emirates Stadium is one of the largest sporting venues in the UK. The stadium can accommodate more than 60,000 on a match day.  If you wish to grab a quick snack before the game gets underway, then you can barge into one of the many eateries in the stadium’s vicinity. 


How to get to the Emirates Stadium?

Located in the Islington area, the Emirates Stadium is situated in the north of London. One can reach there in 10 minutes from Kings Cross St Pancras railway station. In case you are searching for alternatives, then the Finsbury Park station on the Victoria and Piccadilly line can also be tried. The Highbury and Islington station on the Victoria Line and the London overground is yet another handy alternative. You can reach the stadium from both these stations in about 10 minutes. 

A handy tip: All these lines are crowded during match days. Make it a point to leave for the stadium a bit earlier than usual if you do not want to miss the beginning. 


What to eat and drink?

The area around the Emirates Stadium is quite serene and quiet. The area is residential, which means you won’t find too many pubs and cafés in the vicinity. You will be able to find a few eateries along the Holloway Road. In case you happen to be a nocturnal animal, then visit the Islington area on Upper Street. The good thing is, it’s not too far away from the stadium. The area is located at a walking distance of 15-20 minutes from the Emirates Stadium. 


 And more importantly, where to stay?

 There are no hotels in the vicinity of the stadium, but you will be able to find a few hotels if you travel north on the Seven Sisters Road (near Finsbury Park). The Queens Hotel and the Woodberry Down Hotel are two of the best hotels in the area. 



Experience the excitement and thrill. Watch the Gunners battle it out with their opponents at one of the sport’s most iconic venues. The 2019-20 season promises a lot of fun, excitement, and action. Make sure you are there at the stadium to cheer for the Gunners this summer.
