Day 8, Friday 28th April 2006

Day8route

Grounds today - Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal, West Ham United and Charlton

The Route - Possibly one of the hardest days on the whole route. 4 clubs to visit, negotiating the delights of London traffic and over 60 miles aswell!. As we leave the delights of our home town, we might try to visit the home of Luton Town, the mighty Kenilworth Road. Heading south easterly towards Harpenden, then on to the outskirts of North London and to our first stop at White Hart Lane, home of Tottenham Hotspur (18 on map). Few miles further on to local rivals Arsenal and a visit to Highbury (19 on map). We’ll try to get a peek at their new ground close by.

Next on the list to visit today will be West Ham United and a look at Upton Park (20 on map). We head south of the River Thames for the only South London club Charlton Athletic and The Valley stadium (21 on map) to be in the Premiership.

Leaving the grounds behind we struggle on back north of the River Thames into the heart of the City of London for our hotel stop (22 on map).

Eight days down and more than halfway! Six days to go!

Accommodation - Travelodge, Liverpool Street

Distance - Approximately 63 miles

Distance to Date - 523 miles
