“very enjoyable but expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

good tour, lots to see and able to take pictures. security/guards around stadium quite helpful - had a great chat with the man at pitchside who was a gunner through and through! this helps to get the sense of passion around the place. only reason i didnt give 5 out of 5 is because it was very expensive (£17.50) and not guided. you could get a special guided tour for £25 but thats way too expensive for a tour. all in all well worth it.

“Live nearby”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

have only visited once, the Bruce Springstein concert which was great. Have had better concert experiences at other stadiums. As someone who lives in North London however, whenever there is an event, football or otherwise, this part of London ceases up for residents. Traffic is blocked. The knock on effect for those not visiting the stadium: visitors to the area, residents is nightmarish

“Gunner's Armoury, On Fire!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

I am a COYS fan, truly.

But this gem is a true beauty. Forget about the new architecture and building. Amidst the modern design and built, this stadium is surrounded by a solid imprint of history. Laced on the walls around the stadium are Arsenal football legends, their quotes and timeline. There was also a panoramic team picture/montage that fades in from black and white to colour photoshopped from the late 1880's to the current team. This, I feel is a must see for any Gunner's fan.

Stadium Tour - creative. Forget the legends tour that is common among some clubs. Go for the self-guided tour. Own time, own target. You'll be given a iPod lookalike player with a headphone and everything else is self-explanatory. You will also be interested to know that it was Arsenal who introduced the coloured ball, jerseys with numbers and also the floodlights. The home dressing room is filled with a spa bath (jacuzzi alike) and it sure makes any Gunners' feel at home. The dug out area facing the main field is just spectacular.

Last but not least, do not forget to spend some pounds in the Armoury. Great stuffs in there.

All in all, a well spent time in Emirates Stadium.

“Football fans must see”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

I´m fan of english football so I could´n miss tour on this stadium. Self guide audio is much better than guided tour because you have so much time to take as much photos as you like and walk your own pace, pull up short where you want. The stadium is very nice inside but from outside is much more pretty Stamford Bridge. It´s pretty amazing to visit home and guest changing rooms and move around stadium where usually can move just players and staff. We were really impressed by it.

“love it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

I am a Chelsea FC fans but this stadium is far more bigger and beautiful than Stamford Bridge! The self guided audio tour give you flexibility to take photos and walk around at your own pace, the home team fitting room allows you to take picture with your favorites player. a must for football fans!
