White Hart Lane station in Tottenham was originally a station on the Stoke Newington & Edmonton Railway: it opened on 22 July 1872. It is currently operated by Greater Anglia and is in Travelcard Zone 3, on the Seven Sisters branch of the Lea Valley Lines.
Match day special train services
The station is heavily used on football match days for local team Tottenham Hotspur, and there is a match day special timetable for this station with some trains arriving and departing every few minutes from the station. On match days, three hours before kick-off, trains from Hertford East, Bishops Stortford and sometimes even Cambridge and Stansted Airport call at White Hart Lane. This also continues for two hours after the match, with trains starting and terminating here as well.
The railway station is the nearest to the stadium as it is about three minutes walk away from Tottenham Hotspur's ground, White Hart Lane. The special timetables are usually the same but recently trains from Liverpool Street skip out the stops between the London terminus and White Hart Lane station and sometimes they will also pass Seven Sisters station which has London Underground links.
In March 2014 part of the station was damaged by a small fire which took place at the station either on the 16/17 March.
The station is also near to Bruce Castle Park, at which the annual Tottenham Carnival is held, usually in mid-June.
The typical off-peak service from the station is:
4tph (trains per hour) to London Liverpool Street via Hackney Downs calling at all stations
This service increases in peak hours, when there are 4tph to Enfield Town
London Buses Routes 149, 259, 279, 349, W3 and Night Route N279 the serve the station.
Also confirmed by Tottenham Hotspur Football Club, the station will be redeveloped as part of their £400m plan. The station entrance will be moved south and the station will become a hub for north London with many new transport links and a new platform being built on the western end of the station for a new terminus platform.
