As one of the largest and most impressive new sports venues across the globe, the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is the Lilywhites fans’ pride and joy. Replacing White Hart Lane after more than a decade in the making, and at a reported cost of more than £1billion, this mega-project is breathing new life into this corner of North London. The landmark first welcomed fans during the 2018/19 Premier League season, and has cemented its reputation ever since.
Whatever brings you to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, whether it’s to catch a London derby clash, attend a roof-raising rock concert or enjoy world-class conference facilities – it pays to be prepared. From getting there by public transport to the stadium’s hospitality and accessibility, read on for everything you need to know when planning your visit.
Tottenham’s football stadium is in North London, in the London Borough of Haringey. Thanks to the capital’s excellent public transport, it’s easy to reach if you’re travelling in via trains to London.
The Tottenham Stadium address is: 782 High Road, London N17 0BX.
Once you arrived, the quickest and easiest way to reach the stadium is usually by tube. From Vauxhall, hop on the Victoria line northbound and travel direct to either Seven Sisters or Tottenham Hale. The journey will take around 25 minutes. If you’re heading into London Waterloo, use the northbound Northern line to reach Euston, where you can then join these northbound Victoria line services. Once you arrive at either station, the walk will be a further 25 minutes. Don’t forget to soak up all of that incredible match day atmosphere and start getting excited for your first glimpse of Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Whether you’re Spurs through-and-through or are heading into Tottenham for an away game, why not leave the car at home and travel by train? With a Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) in operation around the stadium, parking nearby is nigh on impossible. Thankfully, by using the South Western Railway network, you can travel into London direct from stations such as Bournemouth, Southampton Central, and Portsmouth & Southsea.
South Western Railway services provide a connection between this corner of the capital and major hubs like London Waterloo. If you live close to stations like Wimbledon, Richmond, Surbiton, or Clapham Junction, you can travel into the city direct.
