With ‘One Railway’ providing extra matchday train capacity and extra services to both White Hart Lane and Northumberland Park stations, more fans will be able to make the most of the easy connections to the Victoria Line at Seven Sisters and Tottenham Hale stations.
The Victoria Line provides a one-stop service to Finsbury Park, with easy access there to the popular First Capital Connect rail services and also cross platform interchange to the Piccadilly Line, and a 10 minute journey to King’s Cross St Pancras, a key primary transport interchange in London’s transport network.
To get to the Victoria Line, with its 3-4 minute service frequency in each direction, there are four possible access routes from the stadium:
1. Keep fit and walk directly down the High Road to Seven Sisters station - the station is some 2.5kms walk away.
2. Use the bus. There are several scheduled bus services between the stadium and Seven Sisters station.
3. Overland rail services to Seven Sisters: From White Hart Lane station, the interchange at Seven Sisters is easy – indeed it is a major peak hour commuter route. The pre-match northbound and post-match southbound trains generally have plenty of capacity to accommodate fans and from January 19th most trains will be in 8-car formation.
4. Overland rail services to Tottenham Hale: From Northumberland Park station, a short walk down Park Lane, fans can join the Victoria Line at Tottenham Hale. Again, from January 19th most trains will be in 8-car formation.
However, fans should note that the engineering work that began on the Victoria Line last year is set to continue in 2008.
Services on the Victoria Line will finish early Monday to Thursday evenings between Monday 4th February and Thursday 20th November 2008.

With the new CPZ set to start this Saturday (January 19), the Club has been working closely with train operators and transport consultants to investigate several other, car-free options, for travelling to and from the Lane.
