What’s It Like?
4,000 Swans fans are in the upper tier of the north stand behind the goal. A trip to Millwall is not as bad as it once was, but it’s hardly a teddy bear’s picnic and the Den can be quite intimidating. Be careful around the ground and keep club colours hidden.
Pies, cheese & onion pasties, sausage rolls, burgers and chips are sold. Tetley’s Smooth, Carlsberg and Somersby are available.
What is there to do in London? Everything, from theatres to museums to concerts.
If you plan on making a weekend of it and are considering taking in the latest West End show or even a tour of Wembley Stadium, then make sure you book online as these prices will be cheaper than on the day.
