The Den Millwall

What’s The Den Like?

4,000 Swans fans are in the upper tier of the north stand behind the goal.

Whilst a trip to Millwall is not as bad as it once was, the Den can sometimes be quite intimidating, so be careful around the ground and keep club colours hidden.

Pies, cheese & onion pasties, sausage rolls, burgers and chips are sold, with Tetley’s Smooth, Carlsberg and Somersby cider the tipples on offer.

Visiting London

Eating and Drinking near the Den

You really don’t want to go to pubs near the ground, so London Bridge is a better option before the game.

There are several pubs to choose from in this area, such as ‘The Shipwrights Arms’ (SE1 2TF), which is 2.4 miles away from the ground and is a little pub which also serves food.

‘Barrow Boy & Banker’ (SE1 9QQ), a Fullers pub 3.4 miles away is a big pub with football on big screens. It serves food and decent beers and ciders.

The ‘Bunch of Grapes’ (SE1 9RS) is 3.1 miles away and has a beer garden.

‘Market Porter’ (SE1 9AA) is a pub with loads of real ales on tap and a dining room upstairs. It is some 3.2 miles away from the Den.

The ‘George Inn’ (SE1 1NH) is an amazing building run by the National Trust and dates back to medieval times. It retains its wooden flooring and wall panelling and is the last remaining galleried inn in London. It has a decent menu and is 3 miles from the stadium and well worth a visit.

Parking near the Den

Street parking is on the small estate on your left just past the ground. There are no car parks around the ground.

You can also choose from a selection of private car parking spaces near The Den – including on-street parking, off-street car parks and 40 reservable spaces.

Buses to London
