We have picked out the key information for Town fans below, and added other material including some that is specific to us based on our experience of visits to The Den.
Specific information for Town fans:
Tickets for the game are now on sale at a cost of £26 for adults. Concession prices apply for U12s, U16s, U18s and seniors 61+. Tickets can be purchased on www.itfcdirect.com under tickets/away matches or in person in Planet Blue, subject to the usual priorities and availability.
Travelling to Millwall
Official coach travel is now on sale (subject to the usual priorities) and can be booked on www.itfcdirect.com or in Planet Blue.
If you are travelling from Ipswich on the official coaches you will be dropped off and picked up next to the away turnstiles – note, that there may be a delay before the coaches leave the stadium as all away fans are often held back in the sterile area outside the away end, typically around half an hour.
The coaches are leaving Portman Road at 11:30 at a cost of £21 for adults (with concession prices for U23’s, U19’s and 65+ Seniors), and are estimated to arrive back at Portman Road at 19:30.
There are no planned stops on either the outward and return trip.
Pick-ups at Marks Tey can be arranged for this game. If you want to organise a pick-up please call the Ticket Enquiries Team on 03330 050503 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. The cut-off point to request a pickup is midday on the Wednesday prior to the game (i.e. midday on 24 October). Your details will then be passed onto the coach company, Galloway Travel Group.
Note that all official coaches are non-smoking and the consumption of alcohol on board is strictly forbidden. ITFC recommend that all supporters under 16 are accompanied by an adult.
Millwall Football Club has no car parking facilities for fans (for disabled parking see below) so they strongly advise that away fans travel by either the official supporter coaches (see above) or by rail (see below). If you must drive, www.footballgroundguide.com suggests street parking on the estate next to the ground. You do this at your own risk, of course.
If you have a Sat Nav, set it to SE16 3LN, and then you can ignore the rather complex instructions below! Beware of average speed cameras which cover much of the route between the M25 and the City, with speed limits which seem to vary almost randomly. There are even average speed cameras in the Rotherhithe Tunnel (20mph).
The most direct route for the non-Sat Nav enabled is to take the A12, then the M25 towards the Dartford Crossing, then pick up the A13 towards London, which becomes the A1261 as you approach Canary Wharf. You will pass Billingsgate Market and the Canary Wharf complex, but then keep left (don’t go into the Limehouse Tunnel), and head towards the City. At the junction of the A1261 / A13, turn left and stay in the left lane. After about a quarter of a mile, turn left into the Rotherhithe Tunnel. At the end of the tunnel, take the second exit at the roundabout (a right turn) onto the Jamaica Road. After 200m, turn left onto Southwark Park Road, then, at the first roundabout, turn left onto Galleywall Road. At the end of Galleywall Road, turn right onto Rotherhithe New Road and almost immediately turn left onto Ilderton Road. After about 300m, if you take the first left onto Bolina Road, then you’ll come to the ground, but there is no parking, so you will need to find street parking. From personal experience, make sure you remember exactly where you have parked the car, as the streets around the ground can be very confusing.
There are five car park space for away disabled supporters in the vicinity of the stadium. Wheelchair supporters have priority for these spaces. To book these spaces you can ring the Millwall Disabled Liaison Officer, Shona Groves, on 0844 8262004 for details of availability, as prior booking is essential.
If required, where car park spaces are fully taken up, Millwall will issue drop off letters so that disabled supporters can be driven to the stadium to be dropped off. The car must then leave the stadium car park to park elsewhere.
There are currently no planned engineering works between Ipswich and London on the day of the game.
Millwall is close to several stations.
Trains go out of London Bridge to South Bermondsey station, which is around five minutes’ walk from the away end (there is a direct walkway from the station for away fans) and just four minutes by train from London Bridge. The easiest way from Liverpool St to London Bridge is to walk (around 20 minutes, but you pass too many good pubs to make it that quickly). Or take a 35, 47, 48 or 149 bus from the stop next to Tesco on Bishopsgate. If you take the tube, then it’s the Central Line to Bank, then the Northern Line to London Bridge.
Trains from London Bridge run on a frequent basis. A walkway from South Bermondsey goes straight to the away end. Note that away fans are likely to be held back at the stadium (typically for around half an hour) or outside the station until the first train has departed.
Surrey Quays Overground station is around 20 minutes’ walk, with New Cross or New Cross Gate around 30 minutes’ walk to the ground.
The nearest underground station is Canada Water. If you are travelling from Ipswich then you can change at Stratford on to the Jubilee Line to Canada Water. The ground is around a 20 minute walk from Canada Water or you can catch bus number P12 from the bus station to the ground.
To check your journey go to www.tfl.gov.uk.
There are very few pubs close to the ground and these are not away friendly pubs. If you are travelling by the train then you will find a few Town fans in pubs around Liverpool St, London Bridge and Borough Market. Note that several of these, including the Market Porter on Stoney Street, don’t allow football shirts so you may want to avoid colours.
Pubs in the area include the Shipwright Arms on Tooley Street, the Wheatsheaf on Stoney Street, the Market Porter on Stoney Street and the highly touristy George on Borough High Street (the one with Dickensian connections). It is also worth checking out the Sheaf on Southwark Street, which is cavernous and popular, and the Old Kings Head (in its own alleyway opposite Borough Market), which is always popular with Town fans.
