The futuristic 60,000-capacity arena, tucked in between Holloway Road and Highbury, is the biggest new stadium to open in London since the original Wembley in the early 1920s. The grounds have not only given Arsenal fans a place they can proudly call home, but transformed the former Highbury Stadium into hundreds of residential properties. Arsenal supporters can visit the Arsenal Museum, where exhibits include Charlie George's 1971 FA Cup final shirt, or take a tour of the stadium, which includes access to the home changing room, players' tunnel, dug-out, directors' box and press lounge. If football doesn't appeal, keep an eye out for music events – Emirates doubles up as yet another colossal gig venue that's already played host to Bruce Springsteen.
