Arsenal Emirates Stadium

Visit the home of Arsenal FC, the Emirates Stadium. Everything you can expect from one of the top stadiums in England.

The Emirates Stadium, also known as Arsenal Stadium, is the fifth-largest stadium in England and home to Arsenal Football Club since its opening in 2006. The stadium was initially known as Ashburton Grove - and still is colloquially called “The Grove” by many fans - but acquired the name “Emirates” after a sponsorship deal with the eponymous airline, which is set to last until 2028.

The Emirates Stadium has a capacity of just over 60,000 and is considered a stronghold of all things Arsenal, even though it is technically not owned by the club. The stadium’s exterior perimeter is decorated by murals depicting 32 Arsenal legends linking arms.

On the Arsenal Stadium Tour you’ll have access to the directors box, the Diamond Club, the players entrance and tunnel, the dressing rooms, the dugouts, the interview rooms, the press conference room, and the media lounge.

Inside, coloured stands are set up to form the image of a cannon, the club’s most recognisable symbol. Outside the stadium, you will also see statues of beloved former players and managers of the team: Tony Adams (captain), Thierry Henry (goalscorer), Dennis Bengkamp (striker), Herber Chapman (manager), and Ken Friar (director).

The Arsenal Emirates Stadium is located in the Holloway district of Islington, north of London’s city centre. You’ll find the venue opposite Turnstile E in the Northern Triangle Building, next to Ken Friar Bridge.

Being a bit further off the city centre than other sights, you won’t find any well-known attractions nearby. The area is a densely populated one, home to many artists and media professionals.


If you want to visit the Arsenal Emirates Stadium, you can get a ticket for a match or go for a tour of the venue. If you want to watch a live match, we recommend you get your tickets on the Emirates Stadium’s website as soon as possible , since they tend to sell out quickly, especially when well-known teams are playing.

Premier League tickets (therefore including Arsenal games) normally go on sale to Silver Members and Red Members before becoming available as General Sale. For this reason, it can be hard to get a ticket for Arsenal matches (or other Premier League games) without an Arsenal Membership. The stadium, therefore, suggests all supporters interested in getting game tickets sign up for a Membership .

In the case of a tour, you can pre-book your Emirates Stadium tour on the official website (the option we recommend) or simply turn up on the day and get your ticket at the entry. However, remember that the Emirates Stadium is a cashless venue, meaning that all purchases (at the kiosk, bar, shop, and restaurant) must be paid by card.

The Arsenal Emirates Stadium offers four different kinds of tours: the Stadium Tour (the most popular and frequent), the Legend Tour, the Matchday Tour, and the VIP Legend Experience. Full-priced adult tickets for an Emirates Stadium Tour are £30.00, but concession tickets are available for students and visitors with disabilities or aged over 65 (£25.00), as well as young visitors aged between 5 and 15 (£20.00). Children under 5 enter for free.

Remember that Emirates Stadium Tours are also included in the London Pass (free access for every pass owner) and the 2FOR1 offers (two entries for the price of one).
