Tottenham Hale (IATA: TTK), is a National Rail and London Underground Victoria Line station in Tottenham, north London. It is on Hale Road near the Tottenham Hale one-way system. The station is in Travelcard Zone 3.

The station opened on 15 September 1840 as Tottenham. It was on the Northern & Eastern Railway (N&ER) line from Stratford in east London to Broxbourne in Hertfordshire.

It was renamed Tottenham Hale on 1 September 1968 when it became an interchange station with London Underground on the opening of the first stage of the Victoria line.

The next station to the south on the line to Liverpool Street is Clapton but very few trains, except on Sundays, serve both Clapton and Tottenham Hale. Most trains either run non-stop between Liverpool Street and Tottenham Hale or make one intermediate stop at Hackney Downs. Clapton is almost exclusively served by trains going via the Chingford branch instead.

From 11 December 2005, a new service between Stratford and Stansted Airport reintroduced a direct passenger connection between Tottenham Hale and Stratford via the mainly freight line across Walthamstow Marshes. Lea Bridge, a former station between Tottenham Hale and Stratford, may be re-opened in the future.
