Seahawks in London

We are planning a trip to London in October and will be taking in the Seattle Seahawks game. Can anyone recommend a centrally located hotel with easy access to transportation? It is not necessary to be in the Tottenham area where the game will take place. This will be our first trip to London!

More likely to get replies if you post this in the "Destination Q & A" segment 'England', rather than here which is for folks to write reviews of places they been

Hi,

If you stay in the Kings Cross area, at KC station there is a Tube line (forgot which one) that goes to Tottenham direct.

Hey Paula,
Check booking.com or cross-pollinate.com, filter out if you want hotel, b&b, apartment. How many nights (exact dates), how much to spend, Area, etc. pick what suits your fancy. Read fine print, cash pounds deposit or pay on arrival. You’ll have a fabulous time, we did gin tour, Big Ben, Tower of London, lots of pubs, walked a lot. It will be crazy and the maddening crowds at “NFL street” we were there last time raiders were. Enjoy happy travels and please “mind the gap”!
Aloha

Tottenham Hale will get you there, but the traditional route from central London to the stadium is by London Overground train from Liverpool Street to White Hart Lane.

If you stay near the Liverpool Street Station you will be close to the City of London, St. Paul's, and other places we find very interesting. We like the Overground, so that would be our choice (although hotels are likely more expensive than the Kings Cross area).

You might be interested in these photographic records of the construction the new stadium. It will more than double the seating capacity of the venerable White Hart Lane field, demolished for Spurs to build this new home. Top English soccer teams regard playing in their home fields as a heavy advantage.

The government site https://tfl.gov.uk/plan-a-journey/ will help you plan your route to the game.

In Britain a football "field" is a flat stretch of grass with no spectator facilities whatsoever used by school or amateur sides. Anything with a permanent building is a football "ground".

And don’t forget to check the NFL website while you are there or before you leave.

When I went for my Niners vs the Jags years back at Wembley stadium there had been a huge fan fest at Trafalgar Square that I didn’t know about till after the fact.

You are going to be stunned to see how popular American football has become in England. Stadium will be packed and you’ll see jerseys of every NFL team being worn by the fans.

You’ll have a fun time!

And you don’t have to be close to the stadium in choosing your accommodation. With the overground and underground and Oyster Card you can move around London rather quickly.

As Nigel advised from Victoria station on the Victoria line to Tottenham Hale.

With this is mind AND because it’s your first trip
AND as it’s highly rated see if you can book at Luna and Simone BnB. Close to Victoria Station. Excellent location for seeing London.

Using public transport is part of the London experience!!!

Take the tube to abbey road, Piccadilly Circus, Coventry gardens. Enjoy

No you don't. That is one of the famous tourist blunders in London. See here: https://www.london-walking-tours.co.uk/secret-london/abbey-road-station.htm
Seconded only by travelling to Stratford tube station and looking for Shakespeare's birthplace.
And Tottenham is nowhere near Tottenham Court Road tube station.
Or the tourist who asked the way to Leicester, and was told to go to St Pancras station and catch a train. They wanted Leicester Square.

I've never heard of "Coventry Gardens", Wikipedia says it is "Coventry Gardens (Reaume Park) is a park in Windsor, Ontario, Canada": https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coventry_Gardens

P.S. I've just figured it out: Covent Garden! Ask for Coventry and you will be told to get a train from Euston.
