Wed 23 March 2022, 14:15|Tottenham Hotspur
Fans attending the Premiership Rugby match between Saracens and Bristol Bears on Saturday (kick-off 3pm) are asked to take note of the following travel information...
We recommend supporters familiarise themselves with the latest government guidance on staying safe while using public transport and TfL’s recommendation to wear a face covering while using the network.
Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is highly accessible by public transport:
- It is served by four stations (White Hart Lane, Northumberland Park, Tottenham Hale and Seven Sisters) providing access to London Overground, London Underground, Greater Anglia services and numerous TfL buses
- Free high capacity shuttle bus services to and from the Piccadilly line at Wood Green and Greater Northern services at Alexandra Palace connect the stadium with other stations and services
There is ample cycle parking around the stadium. Walking routes to and from the stadium to stations and coach parks are all clearly signposted. Stewards will also be on hand to answer any questions.
Wherever fans are travelling from, particularly if they have never been to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium before, we recommend using this detailed travel advice and the information below to plan their journey in advance.
Information on the location and distances from the stadium to each station can be found here.
Tottenham Hale is now a fully accessible station. Access to the Victoria line and between London Underground and Greater Anglia services is now available. Greater Anglia platforms are fully accessible from the concourse, which has entry and exit ramps.
Supporters using the Victoria line are advised to use Tottenham Hale rather than Seven Sisters as it is a shorter walk to and from the stadium.
White Hart Lane
London Overground services will operate four trains per hour in both directions throughout the day, with all trains consisting of eight carriages.
Supporters travelling to Liverpool Street post-match are advised that Northumberland Park services have equal capacity and frequency to those from White Hart Lane.
White Hart Lane is a fully accessible station.
Supporters are advised to use Northumberland Park if using Greater Anglia services as it is a shorter distance to the stadium than Tottenham Hale. Trains from central London will depart from Liverpool Street or Stratford and supporters are advised to check train times before departing.
Prior to the match, eight northbound trains per hour will call at Northumberland Park, split equally from Liverpool Street and Stratford. Six southbound trains per hour will call at Northumberland Park, split evenly from Hertford East, Cambridge and Bishop’s Stortford.
Post-match, six northbound trains per hour will operate via Broxbourne for the evenly split destinations of Hertford East, Cambridge and Bishop’s Stortford. 8 southbound trains per hour will call at Northumberland Park with destinations split equally between Liverpool Street and Stratford. Trains for Stratford will depart at regular intervals of 11, 25, 41 and 54 minutes past the hour.
The TfL Rail East service between Shenfield and Liverpool Street via Stratford will not be in operation for this event.
All train services are shown on www.nationalrail.co.uk.
Victoria line services will be operating every three minutes in both directions pre and post-match.
Pre-match, the Birstall Road diversion route will be in place at Seven Sisters for interchange between the Victoria line and London Overground services to avoid congestion on the northbound platform.
Supporters using the Victoria line, including those from or to Walthamstow Central, are advised to use Tottenham Hale rather than Seven Sisters as it is a shorter walk to and from the stadium and will have a faster moving queue.
We expect approximately half the event attendees to depart the Tottenham area via the Victoria line. Queues can be expected at the High Road entrance to Seven Sisters station. Post-match queues can also be expected at White Hart Lane station for northbound and southbound services. Northumberland Park and Tottenham Hale will be less busy with no significant delays expected at either station.
Supporters are advised to avoid station queues and enjoy the food and drink available in the stadium. Last orders are at 6pm with bars closing at 6.30pm and the stadium and the South Stand Fan Zone closing at 7pm.
Queue management systems will be in place at all stations. Supporters are asked to respect and work with staff at our stations.
Prior to the match the W3 will follow its normal route but the 149, 259, 279 and 349 services will be diverted away from the High Road at least two hours before the game. Supporters are advised to check for delays due to roadworks before travelling.
Post-match, the TfL bus services will return to normal operation as soon as possible after the local road closures are lifted. More information on road closures can be found below.
Maps of bus routes can be found here.
For supporters wishing to cycle to the stadium, bike stands are available at Tottenham Community Sports Centre which is located on the High Road. Dedicated bicycle parking is also available on-street around the stadium.
Although our Bag Policy still applies, stewards will be briefed regarding cyclists’ need to carry helmets, puncture kits and removable seats into the stadium.
Maps of the Cycling Superhighway route and cycle parking can be found here.
Two Shuttle Bus services will be operating from Alexandra Palace (Great Northern Line) and Wood Green stations (Piccadilly Line) to the stadium.
Great Northern services will operate four trains per hour in both directions throughout the day via Alexandra Palace. Moorgate station is closed this weekend.
Supporters are advised that temporary roadworks are in place at the junction of Glover Drive and the A1055, causing congestion in the surrounding area, including Leeside Road and Watermead Way.
Supporters are advised to plan their journeys in advance.
Please note, our major event day road closure measures will be in place.
