Highbury, Saturday, June 1, 2.30pm
meet outside Highbury & Islington Station
We start by walking around Islington's largest open space - Highbury Fields and appreciating the grandeur and history of its beautiful Georgian houses. Then we relive the romance of 4 Weddings & a Funeral. Next, you get the inside story on Arsenal's old Highbury Stadium, now converted to chic apartments. We end by exploring their new home - the Emirates Stadium (+ a visit to Gillespie Park, Islington's main Nature Reserve).
Cost £10, pay on the day. (In conjunction with London Walks – Saturday Tour du Jour)

Highbury to the Emirates Stadium
Meet outside Highbury & Islington Station
View the beautiful Georgian architecture in historical Highbury, an affluent district of North London since Mediaeval times and Arsenal’s home for over 90 years. Visit the well preserved old ground, now a chic housing estate. Walk the same streets as Colin Firth in Fever Pitch and relive the climax of the film - perhaps, the most dramatic football match of all time. The tour ends at their new home where we find out about the buildings that were replaced by the Stadium, take in the iconic sights of the Emirates and review the statues of the club’s heroes including Dennis Bergkamp and Thierry Henry.
