The Den (capacity 20,146)
The Den (previously known as ‘The New Den’) has been home to Millwall since 1983, having moved the short distance from their previous stadium, The ‘Old’ Den. It was the first all seater stadium in England to be completed after the Taylor Report, and was designed with effective crowd management in mind.
The stadium is made up of four separate two tiered stands, which are all the same height and look similar. One of the stands is named after Millwall’s longest serving player, Barry Kitchener. The stadium played host to the Women’s FA Cup Final in 2006 between Arsenal and Leeds United.
Away fans visiting The Den are located in the Upper Tier of the North Stand behind the goal, with a typical allocation of around 4,000.
Unfortunately, there are no sizeable car parks right near The Den, which is why most fans choose to arrive either by train or by a supporter coach. There is, however, limited parking available in the estate on the left just past the stadium. Alternatively, there is parking further out which requires a longer walk.
We’ve compiled a list of car parks, below, near to the The Den for hassle free parking while you’re at the match.
|Car Park||Sat Nav||Cost||Distance to Ground||Description|
|Surrey Quays Shopping Centre||SE16 7LL||Free||1.7km||Surrey Quays offers 1,300 car parking spaces, which is free up to 4 hours. This is a around a 20 minute walk from The Den, but is convenient for getting a quick getaway after the match has finished.|
|Camilla Road Street Parking||SE16 3NL||Free||1.3km||Camilla Road offers some limited free street parking around a 15 minute walk to The Den, but parking here is at your own risk.|
|Ilderton Road Street Parking||SE16 3JY||Free||0.2km||There are a number of residential areas to the left of The Den, just off Ilderton Road. Some of these have free street parking, though be sure to check if there are any restrictions and clearly parking here is at your own risk.|
South Bermondsey Railway Station is just a short 5 minute walk away from The Den, and is served by trains from London Bridge. The majority of fans will arrive at Kings Cross, so will need to change there for London Bridge and the onward journey.
South Bermondsey proves a popular choice because there is a direct walkway specifically built for away fans which takes you directly to the away turnstile. If there is a large away following, a special football train will be timetabled from London Bridge, though expect a wait after the final whistle before being allowed to return to the station.

There aren’t many away friendly pubs near The Den itself, so most away fans tend to drink in the London Bridge area. Please note, however, that some bars require club colours to be covered and some do not allow children.
However, rather than take our word for it, we want to give you the view from other away fans who have visited The Den.
Over the coming months we will be building up fans reviews of the best places to drink on an away trip to Millwall, and you’ll be able to find them here.
