Loads of NFL fans from around the world have asked us about the London games, as well as tips on making your trip to the capital the best NFL experience ever.
In this post we will look at Where to Stay-Edmonton Green, an area just north of the stadium and close action to get you to the games.
Ask most Londoners 10 years ago what they thought about ‘Edmonton’, they would have shaken their heads and asked ‘why do you want to go there?’
Like everything touched by gentrification, North London continues to bloom as the cost of living pushing people further north.
Things that use to be dodgy, are now ‘up and coming’, and you can count Edmonton Green as one of those areas.
The lower part of Edmonton is known as Upper Edmonton, while the northern part is referred to as Edmonton Green, not confusing at all.
The area in Enfield Council has seen a boom in recent years as big box stores, massive condos, and new bus routes dot the area.
Where to Stay
Edmonton Green has plenty of moderately priced hotels and motels suited for anyone looking to pop in to watch the games at Tottenham.
While you could stay in the area for the Wembley games, it will be dead as a doorknob, and you might want somewhere with a bit more flavour.
Some of the hotels you might want to look at in the area include:
You know what to expect from a Travelodge, and this location near the main roads will suit you fine if you’re looking for a standard stay and close getaway.

From one big chain to another, the Premier Inn is another convenient location right near the heart of Edmonton Green, and a quick trip to White Hart Lane to catch the NFL games.
Unlike the Lodge, this one has it’s own bar and grill for those of you too lazy to venture out of the lobby.
Parking does look like it is charged at £12 a day, which is far less than London congestion charges.
Bog standard Premier Inn, but you can book it here.
Given that this area of London is more residential, you will be spoilt for choice if you decide to book ahead and get an Air’B’n’B.
When we looked there were dozens of properties available for rent in the area, with some including full house rentals for those of you travelling with a group.
Where to Eat & Drink
Much like most of London, the city is a melting pot of various cultures, with nice smells coming from every corner.
With influences of Turkish, Greek, Albanian with traditional British fare, and a thriving high street, there is plenty of food to be found to fill you up before or after the game.

Getting to the Stadium
It’s an easy-peasy 8 minute trip to the stadium on the London Overground, with less than a 2 mile trek to the Tottenham Stadium from Edmonton Green.
There are also several buses available if the train is too busy, but given that it’s coming from the north of London, chances are it will be pretty available.
