Due to the gulf in class between us and Arsenal, summer pre-season shallackings are so far the extent of our relationship. The Gunners, of course, are more bothered about hitting the top end of the Premier League. It’s a little further than Boro’ have – so far – managed to get, if we’re being honest with ourselves…
Arsenal: The Facts
Highbury House, 75 Drayton Park, London, N5 1BU
We’re not sure too many will feel compelled to drive from Stevenage to Arsenal, but if you do, you’ll need to head south on the A1(M) and A1 well into the capital. And remember to stay on the A1 when you encounter the A406 North Circular Road, as this is not your standard junction.
Once you get to Archway, take the first left at Archway Corner for St John’s Wy to head up past Hillside Park to the left. At the end of the road, turn right into Hazellville Road and follow the road around to the left. Turn right onto the A103 Hornsey Road and this will take you down to the Emirates.
Parking is scarce in the area. It is London, after all! There is an extensive residents’ only scheme in place, and you’ll do well to find anywhere close to the ground. That’s one of the main advantages of using the train or tube to make your journey.
Station: FINSBURY PARK
Services to: STEVENAGE
You could well entertain the idea of using Drayton Park on the Moorgate branch as your station of choice, but we find it easier to use Finsbury Park; not least as Drayton Park is closed on weekends.
Exit Finsbury Park station and turn right so that the Arsenal store is on your right. Go across Seven Sisters Road and down St Thomas’ Road, passing the mosque on your right. At the end of St Thomas’ Road, turn right to pass Arsenal tube station and follow Gillespie Road around to the right.
The bridge across to the Emirates Stadium soon appears on the right.
