Turn left onto North Circular, and keep in right hand lanes for the A1 (Falloden Way) as it branches off to the right.

From West (M4): The stretch of the North Circular Road between the M4 (Chiswick Roundabout) and the A1 turn-off is now mostly dual carriageway, and an excellent way of skirting round central London. Pass over the M25. After 8.4 miles exit M4 (s/p M1 The North, A406 North Circular Road). Follow North Circular signs onto North Circular dual carriageway. Keep on North Circular Road (A406), turning right (3rd exit) at the Hanger Lane Giratory after 2.8 miles. Continue for 6.2 miles, then get in right hand lanes for A1 (s/p City A1).

By rail:
The stadium is served by two tube stations these are: Arsenal (Piccadilly Line): This station is right by the ground.
Finsbury Park (Victoria Line/BR):This station is about 0.5 miles from the ground. There are three exits from this station. The best is the one opening into Station Place - i.e. opposite Muldoons and by the Arsenal World of Sport. Walk alongside the Arsenal World of Sport, cross the road into St Thomas's Road. Where road divides, bear right, keeping on St Thomas's Road to ground.

By bus:
The best routes to the ground are:
No. 29 from Trafalgar Square to Southgate, via the Seven Sisters Road.
No. 210 from Brent Cross Shopping Centre through Highgate to Finsbury Park Tube Station.
No. W2 from Enfield to Finsbury Park Tube Station.
No. W3 from Northumberland Park via Alexandra Palace to Finsbury Park Tube Station.

Trouble Factor:
Generally Highbury is a safe and friendly ground to visit. There are exceptions, but trouble seems to be limited to the visits of local rivals, particularly Spurs.

Car Parking:
Don't even think about it. Mainly residents permit parking round the ground and very strictly enforced. The sensible will park a long way from the ground and take the tube.

Most pubs around the ground are Arsenal pubs. However some do allow well behaved away fans in. Restrictions are tightened when Spurs at the visitors.
If you are a member of your club's supporters club (and you can prove it) you are allowed in to the Arsenal Supporters Club bar (small entrance fee) on the corner of St Thomas' Road and Gillespie Road.
The Marquess Tavern (on Canonbury Street), The World's End (on Stroud Green Road) and The Highbury Barn (in Highbury Park) are all worth a visit and welcome well behaved away fans.

Usual collection of hot dog stands and burger bars spring up around the ground on match days.
There's a chip shop and a café on Gillespie Road and a little further away there dozens of outlets on the Seven Sisters Road, Blackstock Road and the Holloway Road.
