The Den, London

4.1
#74 of 146 in Outdoors in London
The Den is a football stadium in Bermondsey, south-east London, and the home of Millwall Football Club. It is situated adjacent to the South London railway line originating at, and a quarter-of-a-mile from The Old Den, which it replaced in 1993. Built on a previous site of housing, a church and the Senegal Fields playgrounds, it has an all-seated capacity of 20,146, with the highest match attendance during the 2015–16 season being 16,301.
The Den is the sixth ground that Millwall have occupied since their formation in the Millwall area of the Isle of Dogs in 1885.
The New Den, as it was initially known to distinguish it from its predecessor, was the first new all-seater stadium in England to be completed after the Taylor Report on the Hillsborough disaster of 1989. It was designed with effective crowd management in mind (particularly given Millwall's crowd problems at The Old Den), with the escape routes being short and direct. After chairman Reg Burr decided that it would not be viable to redevelop The Old Den as an all-seater stadium, he announced in 1990 that the club would relocate to a new stadium in the Senegal Fields area in south Bermondsey. Originally, it was planned to have a seating capacity of between 25,000 and 30,000, however, the club opted to wait so the capacity was kept to just over 20,000.

  • I’ve always had an infinity for Millwall due to Tim Cahill getting his English football start there. Very happy to accompany my friends there to experience the atmosphere and passion of The Den  more »

  • It is what you would expect from a small stadium. Inside the queues for food and drink get pretty bad at match time. This is an issue for home and away fans. Not uncommon in a ground like this. They are reasonably priced though and quite tasty. Seats are well signed and offer unobstructed views. It is well positioned for the local rail routes and is only a short walk to London Bridge
  • I love The Den but please please please sort out the hand drying facilities in the ladies loos......... it's not right to use your own clothing to dry your hands on due to the hand dryers being so antiquated they couldn't blow out a candle! 🌬
