Public Transport - Tube, Train and Bus Links.
Tottenham Hale is surely one of the most underrated transportation hubs within London, and here is how to get to us as quickly as possible. Depending on where you come from, these are the best ways to make your journey as quick as possible. In all cases where you use public transport we will give you directions to the nearest tube station, which is Tottenham Hale on the Victoria Line and then from there you can go to the "directions" page to see how to get to the studios from there. It's about a 6 minute walk, and the route is well lit, safe and pleasant.
Tube/Train: The Victoria Line is, officially, the fastest tube line on the whole network, so if you have a chance to use it, do so. If you are based near the Picadilly line, remember that if you head northwards towards Finsbury Park then you have cross platform connections to the Victoria Line, so it takes about 10 seconds to make the connection from the Picadilly Line platform to the Victoria Line one as long as you are heading in the same direction (Northbound Picadilly - Northbound Victoria, etc) . Some people change at Kings Cross but this will add about 5 minutes to your journey, so try to do it at Finsbury Park instead.
If you are near the Overground network there are other options. If you are on the East London line or the Richmond to Stratford branch of the overground, get that to Highbury and Islington and then change there to the Victoria Line, and you will be 3 stops away from Tottenham Hale. If you are on the Goblin line (The Gospel Oak to Barking line), go to Blackhorse Rd and then from there swap onto the Victoria line and it is one stop away.
If you are near the Central Line, Metropolitan, Hammersmith and City or Circle line it may be much faster to change at Liverpool Street and to get the Overground train from there instead, as it is 14 minutes away from Tottenham Hale, and you can use your Oyster Card on it too. It all depends on what direction you come from, but try to keep it in mind that it is often quicker to get to Tottenham Hale from Liverpool Street than many people realise.
It is also worth noting that Tottenham Hale is fully wheelchair accessable.

Driving: Tottenham Hale is based only 2.1 miles away from the North Circular, which, without traffic, takes 7 minutes. It is best to use the 1055 for the journey, which is the road that goes past Edmonton Ikea. If there is a Tottenham Hotspur game on that day there will be more traffic, so remember to factor that in also. Also there is now less traffic in Tottenham in general due to the extensive work that they have done in reconfiguring the one way system, however if you have not been to the studios in a long time the route will have changed. Once you get to the studios, here is an example of the free parking that we have available. Please make sure that if you are coming by car that you check with a member of staff as to whether you will need a parking permit, as in many cases a permit will be needed, and we have no control at all over this, we don't collect the money for it either, the owner of our building has given control of this to a third party. As a general rule, if you park where the yellow lines are you'll need a permit from us, which we can give you free of charge, and if you park where the blue lines are then you'll need to pay for parking at the meter. If in any doubt, please let us know and we'll be more than happy to help.
