Travel Advice for White Hart Lane

Travel Advice for White Hart Lane

Burnley supporters travelling to White Hart Lane stadium for the Carling Cup fixture should follow the following advice and directions.

For those fans travelling by private car they should note that their is a Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) which prohibits parking for an area of approximately half-mile around the Stadium. Strict enforcement is in place by the Local Authority. Car users are advised to park away from the Tottenham area and travel onto the Stadium by Public transport.

For Coach's travelling to Tottenham, parking is available in WEST ROAD, N17. This is a light commercial area with parking set aside for coaches which Police will facilitate. Fans can be set down in the High Road near to the Stadium (see attached map). The coaches will remain in West Road throughout the match. Coaches, with their passengers, should arrive at the Stadium between 6.30pm and 7.30pm.

Supporters wishing to use Public Houses should note that there is a very limited capacity in the Tottenham area for Away supporters. Instead, fans are encouraged to drink in the Kings Cross and Euston areas of London and then travel onto the Stadium.

Supporters should also note that drinking alcohol in the street in the Tottenham area is not allowed. Those persons found in possession of alcohol will face confiscation of the drink and possible Police action.

The nearest British Rail stations serving White Hart Lane stadium are White Hart Lane and Northumberland Park. Both stations are approximately 5 minutes walk from the Stadium.

The nearest Underground station is Seven Sisters (Victoria Line). This is also connected to the British Rail line serving White Hart Lane station. Seven Sisters station is an approximate 20 minute walk to the Stadium.

The Stadium will open at approximately 6.30pm and the Bars inside will serve alcohol and light refreshments. Please note however that, as with all matches at Tottenham Hotspur, alcohol will not be served after the commencement of the match.

Please try to arrive early at the Stadium to avoid congestion at the turnstiles.the THFC stewards will search everyone and check tickets before they get to the turnstiles which always results in congestion at the start of the game outside the stadium.

Any persons engaged in racist or anti-sociable behaviour or drunkenness will be dealt with and are likely to face Police prosecution. Fans will be monitored by CCTV inside and outside the Stadium for Safety and Security purposes.

Not sure about the pre-match drinking away from ground in Central London, our Spurs chums releiably inform me. most pubs around the ground are away fan friendly but you never know!

Most pubs will only admit home supporters, but the Gilpin's Bell and the Irish club will serve well behaved away fans.

So are we better getting an overland train to the ground rather than the tube - I am confused?????

White Hart Lane is the nearest station, about 5 mins walk to ground and thats not a tube station. Depending on your journey across London, I think you have to take the tube to get to London Liverpool St for branch line to WHL. The other alternative is to stay on the tube system and get off at Seven Sisters but thats 20 mins walk away from ground

We are getting the train down to St Pancras for mid afternoon ( about 4ish I think we arrive). I has just assumed it would then be a tube ride to the ground. I will have to have a look into it.
