If you’ve never been to London before, it can seem a bit daunting to get around.
When you come from North America, the first thing you notice is that the cars drive on the other side-and crossing the street involves second guessing your inherent nature.
Londoners move across the city like cockroaches on a buttered floor, get in their way, or God forbid-stand on the left side of the escalator, and you will get a simmering look of disdain like no other.
We have a few tips to help you get around.
Unless you’re Amish-you probably have a smart phone or someone in your group does.
This is good.
You should download a London Tube Map, Citymapper, and if you have Uber in your local city-use that as well. (it works over here).
Citymapper will help you plan how long it takes to get to places and back. You can add in your destination/ hotel etc as a homebase to make getting around easier.
The Tube map is necessary for getting around this crazy city.
As you can see from the image above-sometimes it’s easier to walk, especially if you’re in Central London.
Tottenham/ White Hart Lane
If you’re heading to one of the NFL games at Tottenham Stadium (aka White Hart Lane) you will be heading to North-East London.
While this might have been a butt-ache several years ago, recent new travel lines and station have made this easier to get to.
White Hart Lane station is on the Overground (orange lines on map) north of Liverpool street station.
Luckily there are also loads of London trains that also head north in that direction.
You can pretty much reach the stadium from Finsbury Park, Liverpool Street, and anywhere on the Victoria Line.
Just note that on Sundays the tube runs like an old dog, so you might have delays, closures and early closings.
The tube usually stops running at midnight, so have your Uber ready in case you need to go somewhere.
Enjoy London and have a safe trip.
