Getting to White Hart Lane
Ah the age old problem of getting a train to Spurs. The nearest station is White Hart Lane (5 minute walk to the ground) which comes from Liverpool Street but getting home on that train is problematic to say the least. The nearest tube station is Seven Sisters which is on the Victoria line and that will take you about 20 minutes to walk to the ground if walking isn’t something that comes naturally to you there are plenty of busses that will take you down the glorious sight that is Tottenham High Road (it’s very difficult to show sarcasm in print).
There are a few different ways to get to White Hart Lane so probably best to get directions from where you are via websites such as MultiMap or the AA Route Planner, or there is of course the good old Sat Nav: Bill Nicholson Way
748 High Road
The stadium is located on the A1010 (Tottenham High Road) and is one mile south of the A406 (North Circular). You can easily join the A406 from the M25 (junction 25) and the A10. The M25 is 15-20 minutes from the stadium. From the City follow the A10 to Bruce Grove then straight on to the A1010.
There are plenty of car parks around the ground but expect to pay about £10. Street parking around the ground is pretty much non existent now

Where to drink
The Corner Pin - 732, High Rd, London, N17 0AG
As far as old school football pubs go this has it all. When you walk into corner pin it is like you have gone back to a time when players wore short shorts and the perm was fashionable amongst top flight footballers. This is a proper Tottenham pub with fantastic memorabilia and even the walls are painted blue and white. There is a big screen TV, always keeping punters updated with the latest football news and a juke box but on match day you will be too busy singing some Chas ‘n’ Dave classic to worry about that. I am also reliably informed that the Guiness here is excellent.
The Bricklayers Arms - 803-805, London, High Rd, N17 8ER
If it’s a proper pre-match atmosphere you want then this is the place to be, as for being able to get a drink, good luck with that it gets ridiculously busy on match days.
The Bell & Hare - 724 High Road, London, N17 0AG Another good pub for Spurs fans, very good pre-match atmosphere and a little easier to get served in. Also very close to the ground. It has all the essentials, big screen TV, pool table, dart boards and the token Spurs memorabilia. The drinks are pretty standard too, run of the mill lagers and bitters. It also has a decent conservatory at the back along with quite a large area outside for those sunnier days at The Lane. Another good reason to go here is the fact that the legendary Jimmy Greaves used to get merry here.
Bill Nicholson - 102, Northumberland Park, Tottenham, London, N17 0TS If you want a pub steeped in the traditions of the club then this is the one for you. The old Northumberland Arms was renamed Bill Nicholson after the iconic double winning manager and in the olden days it is where the players used to change. The memorabilia is well worth a look but once you get that over with the pub isn’t all that good. No real ales on sale and just your run of the mill lagers and keg bitters.
Where To Drink (Away Fans)
The Gilpins Bell - 50/54 Fore Street, Edmonton, London, N18 2SS
It is quite tricky getting a drink for away fans around the ground but The Gilpins Bell is fairly relaxed and has quite a friendly atmosphere. Home and away fans generally mix together here but if you are an away fan it is probably best not to show your colours. This is your classic Weatherspoons pub so the food is average and the beer is commercial. For those sunny days there is pretty decent beer garden at the back. Although this is a very big pub it can still get very crowded but this is something that is common on match days.
The Park - 220 Park Lane, London, N17 0HY
Situated at the Park Lane end of the ground The Park is largely used by away fans and even though it gets very busy getting served is usually quite painless. Not great if you want to watch the early kick offs or Sky Sports News as there is only one large screen.
Where to eat
While you won’t find many gourmet restaurants here, there isn’t a lack of places to eat. My personal favourite is Chick King on the High Road, and the queue outside the shop means that others like it here too. You can pretty much find most types of food near the ground, Caribbean, Greek, Turkish, Chinese, Fish and Chips, Indian, Kosher – pretty much anything you fancy. If it’s a burger van burger you are after then may I suggest the Colonel at the Paxton Road end of the ground, just for comedy value if nothing else. The food inside White Hart Lane leaves a lot to be desired, you are better off chowing down at the numerous places outside the stadium.
