Tottenham's biggest claim to fame is undoubtedly their beloved football club, Tottenham Hotspur. The club has been home to some of the biggest names in British football, including Glen Hoddle, Gary Lineker, David Ginola and enfant terrible Paul Gascoigne. The stadium is located at White Hart Lane and the team play on a regular basis between August and May. Whether you're a fan of the team or just want to immerse yourself in some British camaraderie (or fights depending on how the game goes), this is a great place to come and watch a match.
Tottenham is admittedly a little rough around the edges. It was settled in Roman times, when Tottenham Court Road was built, and in the Tudor period it became a popular leisure destination for royalty and noblemen, who could hunt in the nearby green spaces. However, when the Great Eastern Railway opened station in the surrounding areas with a special, cheap workers' fare, Tottenham became choked with low-cost housing and hasn’t quite shaken its reputation as one of the poorer areas of London yet. There are still some elegant buildings from the Victorian and Edwardian era, but these are set alongside blocks of council flats. In recent years, Tottenham has been somewhat troubled with social problems; a strong immigrant community and a large gap between rich and poor has led to a schism in the area and Tottenham has seen its fair share of riots, playing a starring role in the 2011 London riots, when many of the areas buildings were burnt down. Tottenham has also been plagued by gang warfare and organised crime, as it is allegedly the home of the Turkish Mafia, but this shouldn't put you off visiting as violence is a very rare occurrence and crops up in Londoners stories far more than it does in real life, and Tottenham's multi-cultural community brings much vibrancy to the cultural make up of the area, with over 300 languages spoken; a range of fantastic restaurants with flavours from all over the world, such as Charlotte's Place and Jambo Restaurant; and a lively music scene with The White Hart Pub, where local bands play.
Tottenham may not have many of its original buildings and remnants of its long history are scarce, but there are some notable places to visit, such as Bruce Castle, which has a museum dedicated to the history of the area, landscaped grounds to relax in and a programme of talks and events throughout the year. You can also visit the Markfield Beam Engine Museum, which is housed in a Grade II listed building, and is a monument to the once great age of steam railways and offers an interesting glimpse into Tottenham's past. Tottenham marshes, along the River Thames, also offer the chance to escape the dense urbanisation of the area and see some of the local flora and fauna. For shopping enthusiasts, Tottenham Hale retail park may not be as glamorous as some of the shopping centres in London, but it has a good range of chain shops if you don’t want to catch the train to London.
Tottenham's nearest railway station is White Hart Lane, which offers overground services to Hackney and Liverpool Street Station, where you can explore London further. On days when Tottenham Hotspur are playing, extra trains are laid on from Cambridge and even Stansted Airport, so you can access the area with ease. Tottenham Hale tube station, in the south of Tottenham, services the Victoria Line; so you will have a convenient link to Victoria Station, about 25 minutes away, where you can catch the Gatwick Express Train. Tottenham can best be described as a 'colourful' area and first-time tourists might find the groups of teenagers that roam the streets and the council flats intimidating, so a better option is to find a hotel near Liverpool Street and travel out, so that you can also explore central London.
