Wowza! What a heck of a game that was between the Saints and Vikings last Sunday, as the sun came out to bring London one beauty of a game!
And guess what? We do it all again this week, as it’s Giants-Packers London this weekend!
To help you figure out what to do, where to do, and all the latest news, we have a packed little diary of ‘to-do’s’ to make your trip extra special.
Here’s what you need to know for the weekend of October 7th to 9th.
Get ready to go nowhere, as the transit union is once again using this weekend to try to shame a Tory Party Conference with stagnation, catching NFL fans in the crossfire.
A national rail strike is due to go ahead on Sat Oct 8th, meaning that trains into London, out of London and some of the national rail lines will be affected.
Tubes and buses should be fine, but you might experience a knockoff affect of noticeable gaps.
If you are planning on travelling this weekend, make sure you plan ahead, as it will be a slow start on Sunday before the trains are up and running again at full tilt.
Getting to the Game
There are quick a few ways to get to the game, with the tube, overground and parking nearby all being options.
Direct trains from Liverpool street will have you at Tottenham within 25 minutes, and the busy Victoria line will take you to Seven Sisters or Tottenham Hale where you have easy access to the stadium.
Some folks also like to park a few Overground stops away, and just zip south to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
UK vs USA
It’s America versus the United Kingdom in Women’s Football (soccer), with a high profile friendly game kicking off on Friday October 7th at Wembley stadium.
The last time these two teams played was in 2020, when America delivered a 2-0 victory over the Lionesses.
Kickoff will be at 8pm on Friday night, and coverage will be available on ITV.
The game is SOLD OUT, so if you are looking for tickets, make sure you find someone who isn’t going to steal from you.
If you’re looking to watch football (soccer) this weekend, you’re in luck!
If you’re looking to watch college football this weekend…you’re kind of SOL.
It’s another big weekend in the Premier League, with some massive London derbys to check out if you can find the time.
Saturday kicks of with some major matches, as posh club Chelsea host Wolverhampton at 15:00GMT, and if you fancy a trip to the coast-Brighton and Hove host Tottenham in the 17:30 match.
There are some great traditional pubs to watch the games in, so make sure you explore the neighbourhoods to find a lovely local boozer.
Sunday might be the NFL, but it’s also a major day in English football, with games on all day-but it’s the later games that might be a problem.
Arsenal host Liverpool in an exciting 16:00GMT match, that will be on most tvs in most pubs across the country.
Later, Everton play host to Manchester United in a 19:00 GMT corker than will also predominate TVs in pubs and bars across the capital.
London loves to laugh, so why not check out some of the great comedy on this weekend to laugh it up?
The Backyard Comedy Club in Bethnal Green has a great line-up on this weekend, and it’s one of the places Dave Chappelle likes to warm up before destroying larger venues.
Get your tickets here.
American comedy fans will have no idea British comedy icon Stewart Lee is, but they can find out as Lee performs in a series of intimate London comedy dates.
There are still some tickets available, and American comedy fans will be pleasantly surprised at the different stylings of Lee.
The fall fair is a classic of Americana, with rides, fun games, and novelty foods sure to choke arteries.
South London is hosting its’ own, with Fairgame Funfair setting up in Canary Wharf.
Loads of games, digitally updated games from your past and plenty of booze to make this an all day fun day.
Tickets and info here:
As we have mentioned in the past, London is not a late night city-and Sundays are the worst of the bunch.
Please be careful in areas like Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square, as they are very dangerous at night.
Areas like Shoreditch, Highbury & Islington, and Finsbury Park all have late night options.
Stay safe, and watch this space for more info!
