Please be aware of government guidelines before setting off.Government Guidelines
With a capacity of over 60,000, the Emirates Stadium is one of the largest football stadiums in the UK. It’s the home of Premier League football club Arsenal and is located in Holloway in north London. Built between 2004 and 2006, the Emirates Stadium was built at a cost of £390 million. The Emirates replaced the old Highbury stadium, almost doubling its capacity, which was around 38,000. Owned by Arsenal Holdings, the Emirates Stadium is a whopping 17 acres.
Now you can explore the Emirates at your own pace on an all access behind-the-scenes stadium tour. Listen to stories of your heroes’ match day experiences and discover never-before-seen footage. Gunners fans big and small will have access to the players’ entrance and tunnel, pitchside and home dugout, the press conference rooms and director’s box.
Founded back in 1886, the much-loved club has a unique and varied history. Did you know it was built on top of an ancient Indian burial ground?! The newly refurbished museum offers footie fans the unique chance to see a number of fascinating exhibits. Highlights include Charlie George’s FA Final Cup shirt from 1971 and Jens Lehmann’s goalkeeper gloves, which he wore for every unbeaten league match in 2003/4. The shield celebrating the club’s hat-trick of League Championships from 1933-1935 is on display too, and there’s also an impressive collection of medals and trophies from former Arsenal captain Joe Mercer.
Did you know that the Gunners achieved their first Premier League victory over Liverpool at the Emirates Stadium in July 2020, when they won 2-1? In fact, if you loved your visit to the Emirates, the Anfield Stadium in Liverpool is well worth a visit as well.
