At the end of the road I turn right and get to Arsenal underground station.

Arsenal to Holloway Road

Walking along Drayton Park I pass the Arsenal Ticket Box Office. You need to walk some way past the box office before you can get a good view of the Emirates Stadium which is the new home of Arsenal Football Club.

You can walk right up to the stadium and passing around it provides a short cut to Holloway Road tube station.

I pass down a number of small roads and reach Caledonian Road tube station.

I pass various shops until I go over the canal.


Wharfdale Road and York Way lead me to King’s Cross St. Pancras tube station.

Piccadilly Line Walk – Day 2 Summary

Today’s walk took about four hours where three and a half of those hours was pure walking. It is mostly downhill which does help to make the route easier.
