Tottenham is an urban area of North London, England in the London Borough of Haringey, situated 6.6 miles (10.6 km) north-east of Charing Cross. There has been a settlement at Tottenham for over a thousand years. It grew up along the old Roman Road, Ermine Street (some of which is part of the present A10 road), and between High Cross and Tottenham Hale, the present Monument Way. Tottenham is believed to have been named after Tota, a farmer, whose hamlet was mentioned in the Domesday Book; hence Tota's hamlet became Tottenham.
Tottenham is the home of Premier League football club Tottenham Hotspur. Tottenham are one of England's most successful club sides, having won the Football League twice, the FA Cup eight times, the UEFA Cup twice, the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup once and the Football League Cup, four times. The club's home ground - in 2009 - is White Hart Lane, located on Park Lane, rather than the road of the same name. The ground is named after the White Hart Inn that it was built behind, and the nearest station to the ground.
