Tottenham Hotspur – White Hart Lane

Jump to: HotelsPubsParkingDirectionsFan’s comments

White Hart LaneWhite Hart Lane is an all seater stadium, with a capacity of just over 36,000. It is the home ground of Tottenham Hotspur (or Spurs as they are commonly known).

The old West Stand was demolished in November 1980 and the present West Stand officially opened on February 6, 1982. 1989 saw the refurbishment of the East Stand, with floodlight pylons replaced by spotlights on East and West Stands.

The lower terraces of East and South Stands were replaced by seats in 1992 and the lower North terrace soon after. A South Stand re-development was completed in March 1995, increasing the capacity of the stadium to just over 33,000.

A new upper tier was added to the Paxton Road Members Stand at the end of the 1997/8 season. This increased ground capacity to approximately 36,240.Away fans are housed in one corner of the ground, in the both upper and lower tiers of the South (Park Lane) & West Stands. A copper cockerel (the club mascot) keeps an eye on proceedings from the roof of the East Stand. A unique feature of the ground is the two Jumbotron video screens, built into the stadium roof above each penalty area.

What have other Away Fans said about their trip to White Hart Lane?

away fans spursThe atmosphere inside the White Hart Lane stadium is reported as generally good, though several visiting fans have advised caution around the ground, keeping colours covered. Fans with tickets for the upper tiers have complained of the arduous climb required to reach the away section. However, there have been no complaints as to the quality of the seats, with plenty of legroom and an excellent view of play.

Generally, facilities are reported as above average. Another reported downside is little space between rival fans. There is plenty of banter between the two, but this can escalate to unpleasant exchanges and the stewards take a tough line with away fans.

    My most recent visit to S***e Hart Lane was for the Carling Cup match 4th round. The home fans were poor especially considering it was against their bitter rivals, we completely drowned them out.

    Standing in the queue for the turnstile was slightly intimidating as the police did little to stop the home fans from verbal abuse (I witnessed a Yid shove a young Arsenal lad and us away fans wenyt crazy!).

    I can’t complain about the seats too much, we had both the lower and upper tie. The view wasn’t amazing as I struggled to see who was in the opposite 6 yard box.

    I left for the toilets at the stroke of half time, and although there were not many female toilets the wait was not too long.

    All in all a great night for an Arsenal fan however that was down to the atmosphere we brought rather than the stadium in itself.

      She’s just jealous ‘cos Spurs doing better than the Arse in Europe at the moment; and bitter ‘cos Londoners know we are always a cut above the rest in terms of style and tradition. My understanding is that they don’t like the Emirates becaise of a lack of atmosphere so she is probably jealous on that score as well.

        Hahah good one! Cut above in terms of STYLE and TRADITION?! Clearly you are NOT a Londoner because you wouldn’t be coming out with such claptrap.

        I think its a good footballing stadium but I was disappointed in contrast to my previous visits. The fans just didn’t seem up for it.

        But of course you as Yid wouldn’t understand an opinion.

      Were not as good as we used to be, but we are still the best in London (premier league wise) and one of the best in England, especially for night games. I will argue with anyone who wants to argue with me about WHL having best atmosphere in London.

      Not a great deal of pubs for away fans, but it’s not as difficult to get to as everyone makes out (there are two overground rail stations within 5 minutes walk of the ground). Most away fans get a decent view of the pitch and the jumbo screen which shows the game and also they put scores of the other games on which is handy.

      Shallote if you struggled to see who was in the opposite six yard box I suggest you try getting some glasses as I’m pretty sure any ground you go to the opposite six yard box will be roughly the same distance , about the length of a pitch, or stick to staying at home and watching X factor,

    I visited White Hart Lane in the carling cup in the 2009/2010 season. Due to staying in London the night it was a simple 2 tubes to Seven Sisters tube station. We arrived quite early and there didn’t seem to be too many supporters around so couldn’t really tell you about Spur fans behaviour towards away fans. This was my favourite away day despite the 2 0 defeat. Everton fans made an absolute racket during the game, Spurs fans were quite loud when they scored but it was very much a case of sing when your winning. The stewards are not over zealous but after aound 40 minutes they started trying to force the Everton fans to sit down, naturally considering Spurs fans were stading up in the same stand as us the stewards largely got ignored. With the exception of 1 moron in the Spurs end the majority of Spurs fans were quite freindly. I was only 2 seats away from the Spurs fans yet I didn’t feel intimidated at any point. The area around Spurs ground can be quite intimidating at night and if you get their early it can be a bit intimidating to say the least.

    heard about bad transport links so done some research, went to a pub in wood green (piccadilly line) jumped on w3 bus 15 mins no problems, like most grounds when utd play home fans were up for it, but must admit atmosphere was something special (you cant imagine arsenal is only a couple of mile away what a difference the two set of supporters are) after game walked towards seven sisters found loads of cabs waiting £9 back to wood green again no problems easy top 5% of away games ive been

    I’d advise not wearing colours, particularly if you are coming from Seven Sisters station walking down Tottenham High Road.

    As a Chelsea fan, WHL isn’t the most welcoming of places and support is pretty partisan, Trouble before the match is unlikely, but its a pretty hostile area after the game where the fans and locals can turn on away fans.

    That aside, it is a good day out and the view is pretty decent with no obstructions, home fans are pretty poor (unless they’re winning) but because of the way in which the seats are distributed its easy to generate at atmosphere.

    Went to WHL for a EPL game, got there by train which is the easiest route I find and doesn’t take too long and isn’t costly. Didn’t drink around WHL though, drank in a wetherspoons at liverpool street as been told to avoid drinking near the ground.
    The atmosphere was electric inside the ground and is probably the best away game I have been too, It is extremely intimidating though and would advise to hide your colours and especially after the game it looks like it could kick off at any point or any wrong movement. You have to visit WHL but just avoid wearing your colours!!

    Only went once, a couple of seasons ago unfortunately to a rubbish 0-0 game. Spurs fans sang boring boring Villa and Villa fans sang boring boring Tottenham. General atmosphere is good to be fair and after visiting the emirates the last few years this is loads better vibe from home fans although the stadium is boring and the area is surely as bad as Aston.. I didnt get any bother from people outside the ground but did feel a bit of a hostile atmosphere which is fair enough I guess. At least the fans are passionate. UTV

    I went to White Hart Lane with my friend who is a Spurs fan. I met him at Liverpool Street, and we got the train to Northumberland Park Rail. We then wanted a few drinks before the match with a couple of hours to spare and he took me up the road to one of their pubs (I covered my scarf, and would not advise an away fan to try this). If I was not with him, I doubt I would have been able to find a pub near WHL to drink in.

    We then entered the ground with 20 minutes till kick-off. The look of the stadium is great, and the facilities are very good. We managed to get a point there too this season, only the third team to do so. Therefore the atmosphere in the away end was great, I wish I could have said the same about the home end, but I really can’t. Spurs fans only began singing for a few minutes after they equalised, and were very bitter at the end about drawing. It seems they’re used to winning this season, and don’t like it when things go their way. However, most of the fans are friendly and accepted a draw as a fair result.

    A final note – the stewards inside the ground are a disgrace, telling you persistently that you can’t stand…singing sat down is not nearly as fun.

    Obvioulsy every time I’ve been to WHL it’s been a London derby. I wouldn’t want my colours showing outside the ground as Tottenham is quite an intimidating area and the fans don’t hold back in letting you know what they think of you. We normally have a drink in Liverpool Street before heading on the train with a police escort.

    Even though the Spurs fans irritate the life out of me, you have to give them credit as they do generate an immense noise inside the ground. But we gave back and sung equally as loud.

    If you want a beer at half time, make sure you leave a few minutes before the interval as the queues are long.

    Going home after the game is when its a touch edgy. It seems there are always Spurs fans waiting for you to come out and give abuse. I’m sure if it wasnt for the large police presence it would become very nasty.

    But all in all a great away day, and the one I actually look forward to the most each season.

    First time to WHL in nearly twenty years….somethings haven’t changed in that the surrounding area is still an urban carbunkle, in fact its got worse….

    Nowhere to get a beer, all the pubs that i rememebered had been boarded up.

    The stadium has been tarted up and leg room was good – but the atmosphere was so so…..I had heard Tottenham fans get a little lively but apart from 5 minutes after they scored were generally pretty quiet and the Wolves fans generated most of the noise!

    In fact Spurs fans despite having a good season are a pretty misreable morose bunch, they should liven up more and enjoy themselves…too many angry faces!

    First visit to White Hart Lane was the F.A. Cup game Saturday 17th March 2012. Travelled up by coach on the day, dropped off outside the Spurs Supporters Club. Have to say I was dubious about wearing my bolton shirt having read previous comments but found the Spurs fans mostly accomodating and so walked around the main street wearing shirt on view! No trouble and some Bolton fans even went inside the Tottenham pub for a beer! The ground looks a bit ‘worse for wear’ from the outside but is impressive once inside with excellent views from the away end. Pricing for beers/refreshments not to bad for London either. The banter was great with the Spurs fans seated closeby and it was a good atmosphere. As most people will be aware the game was abandoned due to the incident with Fabrice Muamba. Spurs fans were absolutely fantastic in their support, men women and children, and were a credit not just to their club but football in general. I was approached by stewards on hearing the game had been abandoned, wished a safe trip home and all the best to Fabrice Muamba. This continued outside the stadium by Spurs fans shaking my hand and offering their best wishes for the same saying how sad it was etc. Even the police joined in whilst awaiting our coaches for the return home. All in all an unforgettable first trip but one which i wont hesitate to make again and wish spurs and their fans all the best for the future ( except when playing Bolton ). A big thankyou one and all.

    Just returned home after a visit to Tottenham. Before the game we had a drink in the Antwerp Arms in Church Road, friendly pub welcoming away fans and cheap beer.

    After the game we went in to the bricklayers on the main road, I would say that I think we were the only villa fans in there and we were made to feel welcome by the spurs. Apart from the result it was a good day out thank you to the spurs fans, however I must add that he stewards inside the ground were not so welcoming, telling us that we at to sit down while spurs fans remained standing ………………………….

    Went down to see the villa game on 7/10/12 was a bit shocked when the coaches parked on the main road plus we arrived 2hours before kick of and wasn’t really a lot to do food inside the ground is disapointing to say the least I would recommend easting outside the ground . View is ok leg room not bad but we all stood up all game so yano sadly we lost which made the day worser fans were quiet and only made noise when they scored no real trouble outside the gorund except from one mouthy spurs fan took ages to get back on the motoway plus spurs fans can be so rude when the coaches drive past all in all a poor away day

    I was at White Hart Lane for the 4-2 game this season, being a Chelsea fan, i’m naturally very wary about wearing colours as Tottenham it’s one of those places where caution is required. The best place to drink is the Hamilton Hall at Liverpool Street and then get the train to either White Hart Lane or Northumberland Park, which are both about 10 minutes walk. White Hart Lane is probably the better option as you don’t have to walk past any Tottenham pubs, although caution is required when your on Tottenham High Road. This day however, we were thankfully given a police escourt where we were taken off at Bruce Grove Station, which is half way inbetween Seven Sisters station and the stadium, it took about half an hour, various insults were given to us, however the police managed to keep the situation under control, inside the ground I was situated on the upper tier, we were sitting down near the Tottenham fans so a bit of banter along the lines of death threats were given, leg room was pretty good in all fairness, the view was superb, food at half time however certainly wasn’t, it takes ages to get served, costs a fortune and tastes awfull, a beer also costs £3.50. Atmosphere was very loud inside, felt pretty intimidating but we soon shut them up with the result being 4-2!

    As much as the police deserved praise before the match, they were the exact opposite after, they let us out without any protection, as I was heading off towards Stamford Hill to visit my mother after the game i had to take the dreaded walk down Tottenham High Road towards Seven Sisters, groups of Chelsea fans were being picked off by groups of Tottenham thugs, the atmosphere was pure evil, I witnissed a group of Tottenham fans chase some fellow Chelsea fans down a side road, simply because of the team they followed, thankfully I wasn’t wearing any colours apart from my CFC pin badge, which I took off, I was one of the few lucky Chelsea fans who reached home safely.

    If you want to expirience an atmosphere close to that of the 1970’s and 1980’s, then White Hart Lane is the right place for you, but be carefull and avoid the walk from Seven Sisters.

    A complaint I’d like to make however, is why are Tottenham’s fans never punished, every time I come here I hear stories of my Fellow Chelsea faithfull being attacked, yet the media always decide pick on Chelsea, despite this, i’ve never seen trouble at The Bridge, and I’ve even witnissed Tottenham fans wearing their shirts on The New Kings Road, Fulham Road, North End Road etc, drinking in Chelsea pubs without any aggrivation, yet we of course are all neo nazi skinhead hooligans! This of course is b******s, infact I am a Jewish man and I hate hooligans, just like many other Chelsea.

      This will be my first visit to WHL. I hope there is no trouble. I haven’t had any trouble at the other London derbies this year, including the one at WHU, the one that everyone was warning me about (1st away match ever). I showed up at the pun with mixed supporters and the bouncer was wearing an arsenal shirt under his jacket. In regards to Chelsea, the other one I’ve been too. I had no problems there. I was warned to hide my colours, but had my scarf showing and not one single issues. The police were friendly and even chatted with a Chelsea fan. However, WHU atmosphere was much better than Chelsea. I was actually quite disappointed by the Chelsea atmosphere (except from the away support).

      Looking forward to this. Throwing my mate in the deep end as this will be her first away match! It’s a b-day gift.

    Went to see the FA Cup 3rd round tie on 5/1/13, and all in all it was an enjoyable occasion, despite the result. The spurs fans and the police around the ground were friendly enough, directing us to away friendly pubs, where there was some good banter between fans. I think it was an Irish club that we went to. I got in without much hassle, and, after getting through some incredibly claustrophobia-unfriendly turnstiles, I got into the ground. The legroom was, I thought, quite poor, but that didn’t matter as we stood up for the whole game, without any hassle from the stewards. The stewards didn’t mind having a chat with some of us, which I thought was nice. I can’t really comment on the problems that occur after the game, as we had none, mainly because the game was not a difficult one, nor a rivalry. Enjoyed the day out, and recommend that anyone should go if they have the chance.

    as a spurs fan of cours hide your colours if your a rival like the Chelsea’s the arsenals, Westham but really you dont have we are a family club who dont cear if we saw another teams shirt its nice to see the walking around the ground. food is fine outside the ground and inside. i wouldnt go by train to spurs no stations are near really.Atmosphere is great when playing a big and rival clubs would advoid the pup where the weststand is where the entrance is where the teams coaches are. come early if you want spaces as there is a residance only so spurs fans go early to park the High street is friendly i love going to white hart lane on a big game day

    I have been to WHL on numerous occasions and everytime I have gone I have witnesses everything from 500 plus spurs constantly attacking our police escort once after an FA cup game they broke trough the police escort and chased Chelsea fans most the way up the road there were over a thousand by the sounds of it but barely anything in the paper but most the fans are nice and the atmosphere inside is fantastic just don’t wear colours this is of corse because we are Chelsea I have heard similar stories from west ham and arsenal fans. That aside it is a good day out

    hated white hart lane,,,,the stewards are terrible,,,,making us stand but letting all spurs fans behind the goal stand for entire game and not one comment made to them.

    there attitude could easily have led to problems and issues..they were arrogant and rude………

    Went to spurs away in 2013. Journey from Newcastle was easy enough and getting to the ground was easy enough too. Got the tube to seven sisters and walked (about 20 minutes) to white hart lane. The home fans were friendly enough and we didn’t get any trouble despite our many anti-cockney songs. The away end was awesome and the stewards, as at every ground, were too much. Home fans were silent from the first whistle all the way to the end. Great day. Great place and decent stadium.

    Good atmosphere, spurs fans very vocal, very aggressive and nasty after woods, most intimidating ground I have been to glad to reach train station I must say. But we got the 3 points 🙂

    Travelled to WHL via Northumberland Park station, although we wore no Sunderland colours others did and suffered no grief.
    WHL is a traditional ground which has been modernised over the years to a very high standard, and all facilities and view were very good. The stewards doing the frisking and seat guidance were good humoured, another good touch were the bar staff wearing SAFC shirts. I think THFC do a good job in making a day at WHL a pleasurable experience for away fans, if only their team would let us win it would be a perfect day.
    Lets hope that any eventual relocation provides for the same experience.
