Founded in 1882 Tottenham won the FA Cup for the first time in 1901, the only non-League club to do so since the formation of the Football League in 1888.

Tottenham is located about 6 miles north-northeast of Charing Cross, in the county of Middlesex.    The area rapidly expanded in the late-19th century, becoming a working-class suburb of London following the advent of the railway and mass development of housing for the lower-middle and working classes. 

It remains a working-class area and offers some of London’s most affordable housing with fantastic transport links.  

Classic Georgian and Victoria homes define the area, many of which have been converted into flats and are popular with first-time buyers, but many still remain as single-family homes as well.  Properties closer to Seven Sisters station in South Tottenham, near Stoke Newington and Stamford Hill, tend to be pricier than those further north.
