The stadium has strict parking restrictions and, therefore, it is highly unadvised to drive to the stadium by car.
A complete ban on any vehicle movement is imposed an hour before the first kick-off and an hour after the final whistle, except for those with the road closure access permit and Islington residents.
As the Emirates Stadium is located in quite a densely populated area, the parking might be quite challenging even during the non-match days. However, the London Borough of Islington provides several options for parking the car in that area- the one on the Annette Road N7/CPZ F with the maximum stay of 2 hours and a fee of £0.60 per 10 minutes; on the Hornsey Road N7/CPZ F with the maximum rest of 2 hours and a charge of £0.50 per 10 minutes; on the Biddestone Road N7/CPZ Y with the maximum stay of 2 hours and a charge of £0.66 per 10 minutes; on the Hornsey Street N7/CPZ N with the maximum rest of 2 hours and a fee of £0.60 per 10 minutes; on the Hornsey Road N7/CPZ F with the maximum rest of 2 hours and a charge of £0.50 per 10 minutes.
The best option in the one still decides to drive by car is to park the vehicle at the off-street parking area such as near the King's Cross and then go by bus or take a taxi to the stadium. The off-street spaces might be in the territory of the offices, hotels, private driveways, etc.
There are 50 spaces available on Holloway Road located in a 9-minute walk from the stadium with a £6-fee per 2 hours, 130 spaces on the Waitrose situated in 11-minute walk from the stadium free of charge, 21 spaces available on The Village Practice located in a 14-minute walk from the stadium with a £3.50-fee per 2 hours.
Although it is advised to come by the public transport during the match-day, the stadium still offers some parking option for disabled drivers. The Blue Badge holders might park their car on the specific area unless it was booked in advance by another Blue Badge holder.
The Parking Scheme
The scheme operates as an extension of the Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) program providing the residents of the area with the comfort and safety during the match-days.
During the matches, the scheme operates within the three areas: Brownswood and Manor House, Finsbury Park, and Clissold - roads west of Milton Grove only.
The operating hours of the scheme during the weekday matches are from 08:30 to 20:30 at the Brownswood and Manor House, from 07:00 to 20:30 at the Finsbury Park, and from 08:30 to 20:30 at the Clissold. During the Saturday matches the operating scheme hours last from 08:30 to 16:30 at the Brownswood and Manor House, from 07:00 to 18:00 at the Finsbury Park, and from 08:30 to 16:30 at the Clissold.
During the Sunday or bank holidays match the operating scheme hours last from 00:00 to 16:30 at the Brownswood and Manor House, from 00:00 to 16:30 at the Finsbury Park, and from 00:00 to 16:30 at the Clissold.
Those areas are usually pointed with the particular signs.
