Stations - White Hart Lane
The London Overground routes connecting White Hart Lane station to London Liverpool Street, Cheshunt and Enfield Town are now being served by a brand new fleet of trains. All trains have increased capacity to assist social distancing. They also have real-time information screens, USB charging points, free Wi-Fi on board and additional wheelchair spaces. We have worked with London Overground to ensure trains serving White Hart Lane will be formed of eight, rather than four carriages, offering additional socially distanced travel capacity. A full weeknight London Overground service will be in operation with six trains per hour before the match and four trains per hour after the match in both directions.
White Hart Lane is now a fully accessible station.
Victoria line services will be operating at Seven Sisters with around 33 trains per hour pre-match and 25 per hour post-match. We advise any supporters using the Victoria line to walk to and from the stadium from Seven Sisters or to use TfL buses, which will run past the stadium every few minutes. Supporters should avoid interchanging at Seven Sisters between the Victoria line and London Overground services both before and after the match as it will be a very busy interchange point for regular travellers.
Greater Anglia are operating a restricted service with two trains per hour southbound from north of Broxbourne and four trains per hour northbound running from Stratford. None of the Greater Anglia trains from or to London Liverpool Street will stop at Northumberland Park. After the match there will be four trains per hour to Stratford and two trains per hour northbound to destinations north of Broxbourne.
Greater Anglia are operating a restricted train service with eleven trains per hour stopping at the station in each direction, with generally two thirds from and to Liverpool Street and one third from and to Stratford. Supporters are advised to check train times before travelling. Tottenham Hale station also has new accessible facilities, with a link bridge and lifts creating a wheelchair accessible option for fans.
All train services are shown on www.nationalrail.co.uk.
As road closures will not be in place for this match, TfL Buses will be running north and south along the High Road past the stadium. Supporters are strongly encouraged to use the frequent bus services from Seven Sisters station to the stadium. The buses will have prominently displayed passenger number limits which will apply on the night.
For supporters wishing to cycle to the stadium, bike stands are located at the Tottenham Community Sports Centre. Although our Bag Policy still applies, stewards will be briefed regarding cyclists’ need to carry helmets and accessories into the stadium.
Regional Coach Service & Shuttle Buses
The regional coach service and shuttle buses will not be in operation for this match.
After the final whistle, as is tradition for our last home match of the season, the team and coaching staff will show their appreciation for your incredible support throughout what has been a challenging time for all. When you do decide to leave the stadium, please continue to follow social distancing guidelines and keep your face covering on.
Social distancing measures on public transport may mean a longer than expected wait to board trains. In the event of queues, supporters are requested to be patient and wait to enter stations. Stewards will be present at stations post-match to ensure any queues can be managed as safely as possible. Supporters are asked to respect and work with staff at our stations.
Public transport services will be much quieter post-match than pre-match.
