The TN Titans are going to London
In 2023 the TN Titans have a football game in London, England. The Tennessee Titans will be going back to London for the first time since 2018. Those of you with the means and the resources to get to this game: read on! Those of you who don’t- read this to laugh at the Richie Rich’s choices. Keep in mind these basic searches are based on off-season prices, October (best guess for the game month) will be much pricier.
TN Titans going to London (where in London?)
The Titans will be headed to Tottenham-Spur Stadium. This is in the Tottenham neighborhood of North London. It’s 2-3 miles from many excellent hotels, but with London traffic, you’ll be 20-30 minutes in a taxi or Uber to the game. Here’s a list of hotel choices, ranging from the near (expensive) to the far (less expensive).
Option 1: Putting on the Ritz.
That is not a saying. There is actually a Ritz there less than 3 miles away. The date hasn’t been set, but there has been only one November game and one September game. So October is a safe bet, so do your searches accordingly.
Just a general search shows the Ritz about $700, and other hotels to about $1000 per evening. About a six-minute drive away you can catch Tina Turner (pride of Brownsville, TN) the Musical at Covent Garden, in the entertainment district of London.

Option 2 slumming with the Natives
Staying in a neighborhood like Shoreditch (shoutout in Anti-Hero from Taylor Swift) or Newington is less expensive. Quick searches on the internet show prices in the $150-$200 per night range. Less touristy stuff , though, and fewer American food chains. If you drive through to the game though you’re looking at a 45 to 60 minutes drive. (And no guarantee of a comparable drive back, with parking lot waits.)
A little further out you can find a restaurant that’s one of the best sports bars in London. The Three Kings Bar, you can see if you squint, “the King” (Elvis) as the middle king.
Option 3 Kings Crossing
Kings Crossing is near transportation, easy to airports. Hotels in this area run from $200-250 and up. After the game, it’s convenient to get the Chunnel to Paris for sightseeing, or by rail to other parts of the UK. If you feel like a mere 3-day trip to the UK is a missed opportunity, then this is the way to go. If you’re prone to jet lag, one might look at a 7-day trip to England and/or the continent as the only way to go.
