For anyone who visits England then they will no doubt notice the huge passion for football which permeates every strata of society and which is a huge part of the culture. Discerning fans will have a favourite team to call their own and each to their own! One of the most popular teams around the world is Arsenal so why not wander and travel over their home stadium, the Emirates Stadium found in North London.
The Emirates is named after the key sponsors of the team and the stadium has been the home of the ‘Gunners’ since 2006 after the move from their previous home, Highbury.
To reach the imposing Emirates Stadium, the most common method is to use the underground tube. There are various stations to select from and these include the following: Arsenal (Piccadilly Line), Finsbury Park (Victoria, Piccadilly Lines and Great Northern rail) and Highbury & Islington (Victoria Line, North London Line and Great Northern rail).
Upon arrival at any of these stations, signposts will point the way to the stadium and on a match day, simply follow the crowd. Within a few minutes of walking, the stadium will loom large and it is impossible to miss.
If you arrive on a non-match day then you can head to the Arsenal megastore known as The Armoury. The shop has every form of Arsenal souvenir and replica kit that any passionate Arsenal fan would ever want.
Aside from kits, fans can buy posters, balls, stationary, photos and even get their name plastered on their their brand new shirts via the in-house printing service.
Fans who want to experience the big match atmosphere can also join one of the Arsenal stadium tours where visitors can access the inner workings of the club such as the home and away changing rooms, the players tunnel, head coach offices and much more.
If you love football and especially Arsenal then wander and travel over to the Emirates Stadium.
