Millwall FC - The New Den

The New Den Guide

Stadium Info

The New Den has an all seated capacity of just over 20,000 although when it was originally built, the plan was to have a seating capacity of between 25,000 to 30,000. Unfortunately, Millwall could not meet the additional cost but given their average attendances of around the 10,000 mark over the past few years, it would appear 20k is sufficient. All four stand are very similar with two tiers and identical height. There are no bad views from any seat within the stadium but advice I'm given is to sit in the upper tiers.

Away Fans

Approximately 4,000 visiting supporters can be catered for and will be situated in the North Stand behind one of the goals. Usually, the upper tier only is given over but each seat has an excellent unrestricted view of the playing area. Facilities are quite good and the food is reasonably priced with chicken and chips coming in at just £3. The Police presence has helped to make a trip to Millwall a much safer and less threatening experience than it was in the early to mid 90's and before.

Where To Drink

For obvious reasons, away fans are advised to keep drinking around the ground to a minimum. A few drinks in one of the pubs around London bridge such as The Shipwright Arms on Tooley Street before heading down to the ground seems a good bet. Also around the London Bridge area are many fast food outlets where you'll be able to grab a decent bite to eat.


Parking is difficult to come by here. Street parking is available on the estate just passed the entrance to the stadium but you'll need to arrive early to avoid a sizeable walk back. There are very few private car parks in the vicinity which offers a good insight as to why most fans take the train to the stadium.

    Travel: We took the train from Peterborough to Kings Cross St Pancras and then changed to London Bridge and went from there to South Bermondsey. This is when I forgot how expensive trains are.

    Refreshments: We ate at a very grubby Mcdonalds chain at London Bridge where it was messy and the staff were incredibly rude. My advice will be to eat before you go.

    Impressions: It's a nice looking ground from the inside, especially at looking at photos of The old Den and comparing them. Atmosphere was dull and boring but there must have been around 2000 supporters in the entire ground. Millwall scoring a last gasp winner didn't bide well with us though.

    Facilities: From the away section, the view was really good, unobstructed views but sitting down was difficult especially as I am a tall lad but I stood up the entire game so I didn't really have to deal with that problem

    Exit: The walk from the away end is a bit partizan but the tunnel sort of thing you have to walk through is probably for the best.

    Enjoy: I did not enjoy the day because we lost and the atmosphere was flat but I would like to see it on a league day and will be going back down when we play there in the league

  • Travel: I walked from London Bridge Station; the walk is quite nice and there are a few pubs on the way.

    Refreshments: I visited The Crosse Keys (is that how you spell it?) which is a little way from the ground and I have to say it is one of the nicest pubs I have ever been in. It is very large, formerly a bank, with spacious tables and exquisite drink. I also saw a pub nearer the ground with a load of Millwall fans hanging around (they seemed quite friendly and were having a laugh) but I decided to hide my colours because it still was rather intimidating!

    Impressions: I thought the view from the away section was excellent and the pitch, for April, was alright. However, the Millwall fans were poor. They made little noise and the crowd was very small for a 20,000 stadium.

    Facilities: I think the leg room was quite small and a little squashed and the café was quite cramped. It didn't bother me too much, though, as it was still a nice end with away fans safely in the upper tier.

    Exit: I had heard that there was a walkway that separates the away fans from the Millwall fans. However, what baffled me was that the small path lead straight onto the 'wall fans. We had conceded a late equaliser so they seemed happy enough, so it wasn't too rowdy or dangerous. It would've been different if we'd held onto the lead. The train from London Bridge was quite squashed which made for an uncomfortable few minutes but it was fine after that.

    Enjoy: All in all, it was a very enjoyable away trip with a good ground and a few pubs. Watford scored in the 87 minute to make it 2-1 and it looked like we'd won. But as typical with Watford that season, they conceded late thanks to a mistake from Almunia. I would recommend this trip to any fan who wants to chalk up an away game for the season, but be careful not to show your colours and be cautious round the ground. Altogether, a good day.
