On a one of my previous visits to Spuz, I caught a train from Liverpool Street to White Hart Lane . The journey time is only 21 minutes and they run every 15 minutes.

Is there a gotcha that I don't know/can't remember?

No, that's it.

Liverpool St to WHL, usually platform 4 or 5.

If you're coming from Victoria, it's the Victoria Line Northbound to Seven Sisters, then either a bit of a walk. Or platform 2 for 1 stop.

Thank you young man. Presumably you'll be in the Paxton Road End?

Nope, my ticket was bought in the South Stand. Chrissie Pressie.

I have to do that Seven Sisters route every time i come home, or go to, Uni. I could do it blind now..

How long would it take 2 reasonably fit 50 yr olds to walk from 7 sisters to WHL?

It's 1.3 miles. So says the-aa.co.uk

The THFC website says 20 minutes ( I think ), all I know is its a bloody boring walk ( and that was when buoyed by Shipperley's clearly legal goal which gave Palace victory ).

Need some help here guys (and gals).

We are going by car, for various reasons, rather than public transport.

Where can we park safely without a) walking 5 miles or b) getting clamped ?

None of the fanzone etc sites has any good advice on this matter. I've heard there's a local park or something very nearby that charges Ł5 per day on match days (as per Everton did when we played LFC last year).

Any help most appreciated.

I've never had a problem parking at Spurs,but we haven't been there for 6 years and according to Gooners and spurs fans I've spoken too,the whole of that area is a mare to park now because of all the controlled zones and residents only they've slapped In!!!

as Sir Jimmy once said "take the train":p

Are most people going from Victoria then?

I am doing a dry run tomorrow (Friday) from Whitechapel to Liverpool Street and then the train option to WHL, and then walk. I shall take my stop-watch and report back with exact timings, variations for age, gender, physical ability, and I shall watch out for parking restrictions and good looking places to park cars.

I shall also report on the full range of price deals from London Transport and the railway people, starting out from a Zone 2 Underground pricing zone.

And I shall make a full note of the Saturday timetables for the East London Line, the Hammersmith & City Line (Whitechapel to Liverpool Street) and the overground railway service, including intervals, halts, stops NOT to alight at, best Platforms, where on platforms one should position oneself for ease of access into a carriage, where inside the carriage to sit to have a good view, leg comfort, and safety in the event of a catastrophe.

I shall take notes of the meteorological conditions prevailing at around midday Friday GMT, so as to make a reasonable prognosis for the type of apparel to wear for the Saturday encounter in N21.

I'm just leaving now, should I take the Rákoskeresztúri út into Pest past the Danone dairy or drive through Kőbánya?

Its a few years since I've been but we got a tube on the Victoria line, got off and then a short train ride.... Tottenham Hale rings a bell....? Can someone confirm?

Daniel_Nash

Tottenham Hale is slightly off.. it's further away from WHL. If the train is going that way then you want to get off at Northumberland Park then follow the crowds.

If it's going the other way then it's Seven Sisters, WHL or Bruce Grove. All pretty much in the same area. Short walk wherever.

Is a 20 minute walk really that torturous lads?

Surely it's better than hanging around on a platform and getting crammed on a train to WHL station.

Take a few cans for the walk as well!

Bloody stupid question , take the Rákoskeresztúri út into Pest, you'd be mad to drive through Kőbánya.

So if I was going to Victoria from E.Croydon, I would be best to jump on a tube to Seven Sisters and walk to the ground?

However, if you're going from Liverpool Street then it makes sense to get a train either to White Hart Lane or to Northumberland Park. White Hart Lane is marginally closer to the ground but there's very little in it. Both are served by frequent trains from Liverpool Street (but they're on different lines so trains stop at one or the other, not both).

Here are some train times out of Liverpool Street:

13:40 (to White Hart Lane)
13:49 (to Northumberland Park)
13:55 (to WHL)
14:03 (to NP)
14:10 (to WHL)
14:19 (to NP)
etc.

The journey to either station takes approx 20 mins.

I regret to announce that due to the high level of security threats over the last few days, that my 'dry run' travel plans have been thrown into total chaos.

What with there being so many al Qaeda lookalike suspects travelling on London Underground these days, I had no choice in this period of heightened tensions but to abandon my well-intentioned 'dry run' N.29.

Seriously though, due to amazing good luck on my part, I was the first to ring NeilPalace who had a sudden spare ticket at 1.55pm today so I got his spare ticket. NeilPalace, you have a new lifelong friend:love:

This means that instead of travelling via Liverpool Street, I am now travelling from Victoria. Plus I don't need to traipse up to White Hart Lane Box office for a ticket. Sorry about that, folks. Next round maybe when we get the Arse away at Highbury.:p

btw, there are trains every 10 mins from SS to WHL. Look for ones named Enfield Town or Hertford East.

Anyway, Northumberland Park is nearer to the South Stand - Away end. It's a straight walk (no tricky turns or anything) from the exit to the ground. While WHL station is closer to the home end (and is slightly more complicated). If that sways anyone's decision.

It's about 8/9 stops, and it goes through places like Euston, Kings Cross and Oxford St and on a saturday you might encounter some sales crowds.

Don't knock it Mr Walsh. I reckon all the travel info on here has been pretty useful.

The Junior Misfits and I will now be travelling via Liverpool St. Thanks to everybody who has put public transport info on here. See you all in the South Stand (Lower Tier).

For future reference (should we get another cup final outing there ;) ) Liverpool Street to Northumberland Park is best. two stops, rather than ten to WHL, and a fiveish minute walk straight down the road to the ground.

Shipp Ahoy!
