Arsenal Football club have a long and proud history—they are one of England's most successful sides. Any visit to London will be enhanced by a trip to the Arsenal museum and taking a tour of the spectacular Emirates Stadium.
Based in North London, Arsenal began life as Woolwich Arsenal and were the first club in London to join the Football League, back in 1893. They have been champions of England 13 times and FA Cup winners 10 times. They also have the distinction of holding the record for the longest spell in the top division of English football, as well as being the only side in the modern era to have completed a whole league season without defeat.
In 1913, Arsenal moved across the city to their iconic Highbury stadium, where they resided for over 90 years. Highbury was a much beloved football ground, but it was dated and its location—surrounded by houses—meant that any expansion to its capacity 38,000 seats was impossible.
