Tottenham Hotspur Stadium Tour was a 70th birthday gift for my father. I had told last year that I would go with him to watch a match. But my health issues have made this a no go at the moment. So this was the next best thing. I booked the 90 minute stadium tour and I booked this and this is what happened.
Spurs’ new stadium in numbers
- 62,062 – Capacity, the biggest club ground in London and second in Premier League
- 17,500 – Seats in the South Stand, the UK’s largest single-tier structure
- 65 – Food and drink outlets in the concourses
- 25 – minutes to switch to artificial NFL surface
- 1 – Microbrewery inside the stadium, the first of its kind
- 0 – Plastic straws as the club phase out single-use plastic
The stadium has a wide range of hospitality and catering offerings, including food options ranging from burger and steak sandwiches to Asian street food. It also contains a 180-bedroom upscale hotel, while Michel Roux Jr, Chris Galvin and Dipna Anand have been named on the chef line-up for the stadium’s Michelin-starred dining experiences. The public square outside the stadium will provide what the club describes as a “focal point for supporters and community”, with space for fan-themed events and local events run by the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation. Among the other offerings is a ‘Sky Walk’ – a unique visitor attraction which will allow fans to climb the exterior of the stadium up to 40 metres high. This was not opened when we visited in early September. I also experienced this tour as a wheelchair user. I have sadly come to the realisation that I should struggle anymore on my bad knees. My dad and I enter the store and joined the tour here.
We then took the lift to the highest floor to see the pitch in full and it was a WOW me moment for me.
Then we visited the downstairs, press area, dressing rooms.
And then taken out to the pitch.
While everyone went mad over the home seats, sitting in them, having pictures. I waited in my wheelchair and got the away seats that nobody was interested in.
It was a lovely experience to visit this. So pleased I managed this and my dad loved. To think he first came to White Hart Lane in 1961. He is determined to watch a match here. I can not do this with him though.
