TRAVEL AND PARKING
From city centre:
Reaching White Hart Lane from Central London is best done using public transport. We recommend you take the Abellio Greater Anglia service to White Hart Lane station, or Northumberland Park station. The journey from Liverpool Street to either destination takes around 20 minutes.
White Hart Lane Station is a five-minute walk from the stadium. On matchday, Northumberland Park is often a little quieter, but the walk is around double the distance and can take between 10-15 minutes.
Take the M1. At Junction 2 merge onto A1 toward Central London (A406), continue on and turn right onto Victoria Road. Turn left onto Sterling Way and then right onto A1010, finally turn right onto Paxton Road and follow signs.
White Hart Lane as is located in a residential area and has a parking scheme. Therefore, it is better to find parking outside the area. Be aware that traffic wardens do operate seven days a week so parking in residential areas will result in parking tickets.
Unofficial car parking spaces are located on the grounds of some industrial units in the Brantwood, Garman and Tariff Road areas. Prices usually range from £10-£20.
Please note: There are planned works on behalf of Transport for London on the A406 between the junction with the M11 and the junction with the A12.

There are a number of excellent bus services from Seven Sisters running past the stadium entrance. You are recommended to take bus routes 149, 259, 279, 349 or W3, which all make stops outside of the stadium.
Local Taxi number: Call-A-Cab – 020 8901 4444
A taxi rank is also available at Tottenham Hale Station.
White Hart Lane is located in a busy residential part of North London, meaning roads immediately around the stadium are often closed or restricted-access on match days. Park Lane approaches the stadium from the east, Church Road from the West, and the Tottenham High Road from the north and south.
Away fans are housed in one corner of the ground between the West and South stands, where 2,900 people can be seated. It uses the upper and lower tiers so be prepared for a high view and steep climb if you sit in the upper part.
Visiting supporters are accommodated in blocks 37-38 and 46-47. Entrance to these blocks can be found on Park Lane. The turnstiles nearest to the junction of the High Road and the Megastore will be in use for away fans. The stadium opens 90 minutes before the game.
The away allocation for disabled supporters is four wheelchair spaces and disabled parking is available but is on a first come, first served basis and only available to blue badge holders. To contact Tottenham Hotspur FC, email: [email protected]
Everton Safety announcement
Everton Football Club does not condone the use of pyrotechnics whatsoever those found using them either home or away will be subject of action by the Club and the Police. Being convicted of using them could also result in a jail sentence that is how seriously the matter is being treated by courts across the country. As a Club we would also impose an indefinite ban on anyone caught using pyrotechnics. Apart from the risk of a ban or conviction the devices have a serious effect on others, particularly those with breathing difficulties and the disabled in wheelchairs who cannot easily get away from the smoke.
During the season 2015/16, we have noticed an increase of persistent group “bouncing”, culminating in beer being thrown in the air. This has happened on both home and away concourses and would stress has only involved a very small minority of fans.
This has resulted in both the Club and the Police receiving complaints from supporters who have become soaked in beer. As we are sure you will agree this is anti-social behavior and people should not have to put up with this. As a consequence both the Club, Merseyside Police and supporters groups have discussed how this should be addressed.
Firstly, both the Club and the Police want to make it clear that we want ALL our supporters to enjoy their day and we understand that this may include singing and an element of “bouncing” as a group.
However, a decision has been made that should home or away fans participate in the throwing of alcohol in any area of the stadium, they will be dealt with by Match Day Stewards with the full support of Merseyside Police Officers. This could culminate with an ejection from the ground or potentially an arrest, dependent on the specific circumstances.
This season, you will see more stewards and Police Officers on the concourse, who will provide early advice should a situation look like it is getting out of control.
Please continue to enjoy the match but we ask that you also consider other supporters and how they will be affected by your behavior and we ask for your support in this.

I first got into watching football and supporting Tottenham as a keen 8 year old in the mid-late 1980s. With skilful players like Hoddle and Waddle – and, not forgetting, a beautiful all-white kit – it was pretty easy to be attracted to the club. I first started going in 1989/90 when Gazza, Lineker et al. were lighting up WHL and Tottenham finished the season a credible 3 rd ; the following campaign saw Spurs winning FA Cup and, to me at least, it genuinely felt like our club was going to be the place to be as we entered the 1990s and the Premiership-Sky era.
How wrong I was. The 1990s were generally a miserable time to be a Tottenham fan. The early Sky years saw Arsenal and Chelsea regularly challenging – and winning – various honours whilst in N17 there were only a few glimmers of hope and hints at glory which almost always ended in failure. Alan Sugar was our Chairman and he managed to impressively downgrade our ambitions year after year. From the promise of Klinsmann and the Romanians to making do with signings like Andy Sinton, everything about our club was in steady decline, and the gap between us and our London rivals looked unbridgeable. The paltry League Cup triumph in 1999 failed to mask the fact that Tottenham were no longer one of the country’s top teams.
Alan Sugar finally let go of Tottenham in 2001, selling to Joe Lewis and Daniel Levy via ENIC.
The subsequent decade saw a long, difficult, but ultimately successful attempt to put
Tottenham somewhere near the upper reaches of the English Premier League. The high turnover of managers during their reign has, at times, been far from ideal, but the reality now seems to be that our hierarchy were genuinely utterly determined to find a perfect manager for Tottenham Hotspur. The credible efforts of Martin Jol, Harry Redknapp, AVB and Tim Sherwood (just kidding...) all came close but ultimately failed to deliver the required consistency, as well as the strong culture that our club has lacked for too many decades.
Then came Mauricio Pochettino.
The Argentinian was not everyone’s first choice for manager the last time we were looking to fill the role. But if there is one word that I would use to describe the impact that he has had on our Club over the past two years it would be unity. It’s hard to think of anyone in recent times who has done so much to both change the ethos of the Club as a whole (in a positive way) and unite everyone from the staff to our frustratingly hard-to- please supporter base. We genuinely seem to be pulling together as One Club, and that has made WHL a much more pleasant place to be on a Monday evening (that seems to be when we have to play games now).
Alongside our desire to play attractive, attacking football, Pochettino has also brought and mental toughness and work-ethic that has been absolutely fundamental to the recent improvement in Tottenham over the past two seasons. The old Tottenham – Spursiness if you will – still exists to some degree (see end of last season’s mini-collapse) but we now have a genuine backbone in the side, and the example of our physical dismantling of Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last season – actual result aside – brought a curious satisfaction to those of us who have witnessed too much of our soft centre for too long.
It is also important to recognise the impact that Daniel Levy and ENIC have had on the long term infrastructure of the club: from the Academy, the brand new state-of- the-art training ground and our new home (it will always be White Hart Lane!), the investment in the club has been genuine and meaningful. Whilst these investments may be restricting the cash that we have available for transfer funds, in many ways it’s actually helping us as it has forced us to embrace youth as well as making us more cautious in our acquisitions.
Our current approach seems to be to carefully find slightly underrated players but ones whose ability is precisely what Pochettino wants to bring to our squad. Janssen and Wanyama are exactly of that ilk, and the relief that they should bring to Kane and Dembele respectively – both hugely and overly relied upon- will bring a welcome balance to the squad. There is still work to do, but most Tottenham fans feel optimistic right now.
It is impossible to know how the Manchesters and Chav scum – sorry, Chelsea Football Club – will respond under their new regimes. Liverpool could also be interesting to watch. All of them have their own project and each may take time and/or fail. This season is just very hard to predict. However, Tottenham have been clearly progressing for two years now.
Pochettino has a very clear plan and our project is one that is working.
Whether we can sustain a challenge against the super-rich of the Sky 5 remains to be seen.
But there’s no reason to doubt that we can’t push on from last year, and a challenge for the PL title is not in any way out of the question. Champions’ League nights at Wembley with over 80,000 Tottenham fans at each match is going to be fun too. As we say farewell to our old WHL home, it could be quite a party in May 2017 in N17. COYS.
Everton are a club that many Tottenham fans will have a lot of empathy with. The Premier League era has affected both in a similar way, in that it’s broadly passed us by whilst much loathed rivals get all the attention and honours. Throughout the lean periods, however, Everton and Tottenham – along with clubs like the now pitiful Aston Villa – have managed to retain and identity and a strong core support that has kept the club going through challenging times.
Goodison Park is always a good ground to visit – apart from the shocking sight lines – due to the atmosphere and tradition that the place evokes. RK is an interesting appointment and it looks like Everton have finally found a bit of money too. Sadly, Goodison does need replacing, and quite how all of this fits together over the next few years will be intriguing to see. Just don’t become another West Ham and end up in a ***** athletics stadium acting like classless nouveau riches.
Matches with you are generally pretty intense so it’s a bit of a shame that this comes right at the start of a new season. Hopefully you’re just not quite ready yet and we can take advantage. Hopefully you’ll also end up finishing the season above Liverpool FC!
