•By car

Norwich to the Emirates Stadium by car takes two and a half hours. As you approach London leave the M1 at junction two and go onto the A1, following the signs 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 quarter of a mile further down this road.

It is not a good idea to try to park around the Emirates as it is a residential area and has a parking scheme, with limited space for non-residents. So it is better to park elsewhere. One suggestion is parking at Cockfoster underground station, it has its own car park and only four miles away. You can then get the underground southbound on the Piccadilly Line to Arsenal station.
