Transport for London - Weekend travel information


London Bridge, the UK’s fourth busiest station has undergone a total transformation to become a station fit for the 21st century.

The new London Bridge station was designed with more space and easier connections to other rail services and the Underground, to handle the expected passenger growth into the future. The new spacious street-level concourse enables passengers to access all the platforms from one place. New entrances and exits provide better routes to and from the station

Victoria line

The Victoria line is expected to be very busy as follows:

  • Northbound services towards Seven Sisters between 10:30 and 13:30
  • Southbound services from Tottenham Hale between between 18:00 and 20:00

If you can travel outside these times, your journey will be easier.

For the NFL game, fans should take the Victoria line to either Seven Sisters or Tottenham Hale and walk, using the signed routes. Avoid interchange from the Victoria line to London Overground at Seven Sisters as northbound Overground services are expected to be full upon arrival at Seven Sisters.

Seven Sisters and Tottenham Hale stations are likely be very busy between 10:00 and 13:00 and between 18:00 and 20:00. A managed queuing system will in operation after the game at both stations. However, it is generally easier to board the Victoria line at Tottenham Hale station after the match. Please follow advice from police, stewards and TfL staff.

London Overground

Before the game you are advised to board at Liverpool Street for services towards White Hart Lane. Northbound trains are expected to be full on arrival at Seven Sisters. At Seven Sisters all access to London Overground will be via a queue at the event day entrance on Birstall Road.

All interchange from the Victoria line onto the Overground will require exiting and re-entering the station via the queue at event day entrance.

After the game there will be a managed queueing system in place at White Hart Lane. For journeys to central London and beyond you are advised to stay on the train to Liverpool Street and change to Tube services there, as there will be queues at Seven Sisters for the Victoria line.

Bus services

All traffic, including bus routes 149, 192, 259, 279, 318, 341, 349 and W3 will be diverted from Tottenham High Road during the road closure (04:30 – 19:00). After the match, bus stops D and K on Tottenham High Road outside Seven Sisters station, will be suspended. Use bus stops G and J 'College of North East London'.
