Going to Arsenal ?

Arsenal   N5 1BU

By car  103 mls, 2 hours 15 mins

Leave the M1 at Junction 2 and onto the A1, following the signs for City (Central London). Keep going on the A1 for around six miles, until you see Holloway Road Tube Station on your right. Take the next left at the traffic lights into Hornsey Road and the stadium is about a 1/4 of a mile further down this road.

There is little parking at the stadium itself or in nearby streets. An extensive residents only parking scheme operates around the stadium on matchdays. It's probably better to park further out of London around a tube station such as Cockfosters and get the tube to the ground  – it is only about 4 miles south of the M25.  It has its own car park but this can be full and it can also be difficult to exit after the game, with most drivers seeking to come out and cross the main road to head north.

 

PUBLIC TRANSPORT

The nearest London Underground tube station to the Emirates Stadium is Holloway Road on the Piccadilly line. However, this is closed on matchdays as it relies mostly on lifts to transport passengers to and from street level and this could cause problems when large crowds are in attendance. Fans should therefore alight at the next stop on the Piccadilly line which is Arsenal tube station. It is only a few minutes walk from here to the stadium. On exiting the station turn right and follow Drayton Park Road around to the left. Then take one of the large bridges over the railway line to the stadium. Other tube stations in walking distance of the stadium are Finsbury Park on the Piccadilly Line and Highbury & Islington on the Victoria Line.

Otherwise you can take an overland train to Finsbury Park Railway Station from London Kings Cross. It is then about a 10 to 15 minute walk from Finsbury Park to the stadium.

By train journey to London takes approx 2 hours , off peak return £62.50 – singles may be cheaper

 

Where to drink

The traditional pub for away supporters is the Drayton Arms, which is located near to Arsenal tube station and Drayton Park railway station. This Courage pub overlooks the new stadium and is only a few minutes walk away.

The Twelve Pins (formerly the Finsbury Park Tavern) near Finsbury Park Tube Station normally has a good mix of home and away fans and about a ten minute walk from the ground. There is also a Wetherspoons pub called the White Lion Of Mortimer, which is a five minute walk away from Finsbury Park Tube Station along Stroud Green Road.

Going to Newcastle ?

By Car  NE1 4ST

At the end of the A1(M) continue on the A1 and then the A184 towards Newcastle. Continue along this road, bearing left onto the A189. Continue over the River Tyne on the Redheugh Bridge, from which the ground can be clearly seen. Carry on straight up the dual carriageway (St James Boulevard). This leads directly to the Gallowgate end of the ground. As the ground is so central there are a number of pay and display car parks in the vicinity.

An easier way into the City is to stay on the A1 until the exit for Westerhope. Leave the A1 go straight over two roundabouts and then follow the signs for the Royal Victoria Infirmary (Queen Victoria Road) – parking here is in a multi storey and allows a reasonably quick getaway after the game.

Two park and ride schemes are currently in operation: from Newcastle Great Park (just to the west of the A1) and also the 'Soccerbus' that operates from Metro Centre. With tickets on sale on the buses for £2 return, this offers a great way to avoid the hassle of finding (and paying for) a parking spot in the city centre. The Park & Ride site is ideally located just off the A1 at Newcastle Great Park.

It is well signed within Newcastle Great Park and is just one minute from the junction with the A1 – City North/Gosforth (A1056). For those with Sat Nav use the NE13 9NR – the Park & Ride site is on the opposite side of the road to the SAGE building. No need to book, just turn up on the day – both park and rides are operational from around 3 hours before the game and 3 hours afterwards to make your journey as flexible as possible.

Approx 186 Mls 3 hours 20 mins

Pubs

You are only a few minutes walk from the main shopping areas of Newcastle. There are plenty of bars to choose from in the city centre, but most away fans tend to favour the pubs opposite and around Newcastle Railway Station. The 'A Head Of Steam' 'The Lounge' and 'O'Neills' are all recommended, but some of these bars will only admit fans if colours are covered and none of them admitted children. Also nearby is a Wetherspoons outlet called the Union Rooms.

By Train

Newcastle Central station is located around 15 minute walk from St. James' Park, and is well signposted. Cross the road from the station, and walk up Pink Lane, passing the Forth Hotel. Turn right onto Clayton Street, then left onto Westgate Street. Outside Tilleys Bar, bear right onto Bath Lane, passing Fujiyama Restaurant. After 200 metres, turn right and then left onto Gallowgate, and the ground will be obvious from here. 

Alternatively, take the Metro from Central Station to Haymarket. Cross the road, and turn left. At Mordon Street (next to the Goose), turn right and then left, walking around the back of Eldon Gardens. The ground is at the end of this road (Strawberry Place), just beyond the Strawberry Pub

Trains take approx 3 hours 20 mins going, last train to get back Saturday is 19-35 which takes nearly 5 hours  Off peak return £106.00

By Bus

Newcastle has two major bus stations, Haymarket (for services from Northumberland and the North) and Eldon Square (services from County Durham and the south). These are located adjacent to each other on Percy Street, next to Haymarket Metro station. From both bus stations, cross over to the far side of the road, then walk up the passageway next to the Goose public house, and turn left. 

The Stagecoach buses which operate within Newcastle and Gateshead city boundaries do not stop at either of the bus stations, but stop in the centre of town, from where the ground is signposted and easily walkable
