Posted on 14 August 2003  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Virgin Trains tell us that they've been informed that emergency engineering work will close the West Coast main line between Hemel Hempstead and Milton Keynes on the weekend of August 16/17 - affecting rail travellers to Birmingham City.

This means there will be no through Virgin Trains services to and from London.

All of Virgin's services from the Midlands, North and Scotland will terminate at Northampton where passengers will have to transfer to road transport, which will then convey them to Hemel Hempstead.

At Hemel Hempstead there will be connections by Silverlink train to Watford Junction and London Euston. For those leaving Euston, the arrangements will apply in reverse.

The Club will be operating Executive Coaches to the Birmingham City game, for only £17 return, on a pre-booked basis. Pick up will be 07:15am from White Hart Lane and 08:15 from Toddington. Pre-book your tickets on the Spurs Ticketline on 0870 420 5000.
