Millwall - tickets / travel / pubs etc.

Millwall v Palace
Pre-Season friendly
29th July 2000, 3pm


Millwall Football & Athletic Co (1985) Plc
The Den, Zampa Road,
London SE16 3LN

Main Switchboard: 020 7232 1222
Main Facsimile: 020 7231 4202
Ticket Office: 020 7231 9999

Ticket prices: £12 Adults £6 OAP's/Juniors

Family Enclosure for all games £8 Adults £2 Juniors

A sixteen page programme will be on sale priced at £1.50.


Away fans are usuall located at one end of the ground in the North Stand (usually in the upper tier only) but for the friendlies the following areas only are open:

Cold Blow Lane Upper
West Stand Upper
Family Enclosure

These are the same areas as were open for last season's friendlies.
Tickets for these games will NOT be on sale until the day of each match.


The best advice is "be careful". even a friendly game will be an opportunity for nastiness against their hated enemy. Yes, CPFC. They loathe us and I would not recommend
drinking in the New Cross area or wearing Palace colours...it
may be a friendly but be careful.

However if you are brave enough to face the Lion’s Den for our pre-season ‘friendly’ again this year - (one contribution to I to the travel bulletin was just ‘don’t go’!!) then read on!!

Directions to the ground

It's probably best to go by car to this ground, as at least you can get away fairly quickly after the game and are not kept hanging around waiting for trains. Having said that, beware of where you park your car - I have previously been advised to remove all traces of Palace stickers etc!! There are number of ways of getting to the ground

from the South follow the A2 into London from Junction 2 of the M25 (signposted London A2, Dartford A225). Keep left where road divides (London SE A2) onton the A2 dual carriageway. Exit A2 after just over 10 miles (Central London A2) at roundabout turn left (central London A2) onton the A2 Shooters Hill. Straight on for just over 2 miles - signposted Deptford & New Cross. Under railway bridge, then take right hand filter turning right into Detpford Church Street. Straight on for just under 1/2 a mile, over roundabout, to t-junction - turn left into A200 Evelyn Street - straight on past KFC, over bridge, turn left into Grinstead Road (before Shell Station on right). follow road over mini-roundabout to t-junction. Turn right into Ilderton Road, and right again towards ground.

From other directions:
Exit M25 junction 7 - follow signs to London (NE) M11 - onto M11 southbound. After just over 7 miles bear left, onto North Circular Road. After nearly 5 miles at roundabout turn right onto A13, follow signs to Blackwall Tunnel for 4 miles, and then left following signs to Blackwall Tunnell. From Tunnel stay on A102 (M) for nearly 2 miles - exit a signpost Central London A2. At roundabout turn right onto A2 Shooters Hill. Straight on for just over 2 miles - signposted Deptford & New Cross. Under railway bridge, then take right hand filter turning right into Detpford Church Street. Straight on for just under 1/2 a mile, over roundabout, to t-junction - turn left into A200 Evelyn Street - straight on past KFC, over bridge, turn left into Grinstead Road (before Shell Station on right). follow road over mini-roundabout to t-junction. Turn right into Ilderton Road, and right again towards ground.


Street parking can be found on the small estate on your left just past the ground. There are no sizeable car parks around the ground

BY UNDERGROUND:
District Line (Green) towards Upminster (Eastbound) change at Whitechapel to East London line (orange) towards Surrey Quays.
From Surrey Quays - left hand exit from station - turn left along Rotherhithe Old Road, at T-junction by Auto Screen, turn right into Rotherhithe New Road. Straight on for 0.3 miles, crossing roundabout, under railway arches, past Bermondsey Trading Estate under another railway bridge, turn left inotn Ilderton Road - after 1/4 of a mile turn left into Zampa Road

BY TRAIN

Trains from Victoria and London Bridge, stop at South Bermondsey - from there follow path at end of platform, take the left fork in path (signposted Millwall FC) At main road, turn left towards ground.

New Cross station is 1 1/2 miles to the ground, and New Cross Gate (on the East Croydon - London Bridge line) is 1.3 miles - both stations are however only 1 stop from Surrey Quays, on the tube (East London Line)

New Cross Gate is the nearer to the ground. If getting off at New Cross turn right coming out of the station and walk over the railway bridge. Five minutes walk will bring you to New Cross Gate station.


BY BUS:
Nr.36 towards New Cross / Lewisham, get off at New Cross
No 21, 53, 78 run along the Old Kent Road

P11 runs along rotherhithe New Road
P13 travels from Streatham to Surrey Quays via Ilderton Road

Disabled facilities

Spaces for 50 away supporters in an area about half - way up in the West Stand. The facitilities and view are good, unfortunately however you have to sit with the home supporters and helpers in particular may want to remove colours when moving around in the stand.

There are 17 disabled toilets available
The cost is free for the disabled person, and 10.00 for the helper, booking is not necessary.

10 parking bays are available - again removing all palace stickers etc. is advisable, as spaces are located outside the main home supporters stand.

For blind supporters, there are 2 headsets available allowing supporters to sit where they like - but they need to be booked.


Drinking
Best to avoid any around Bermondsey. There are a couple of railway pubs at London Bridge station but these are fairly depressing.

Marquis of Granby :
Halfway between the two railway stations. It is an Irish bar doing the obligatory Guinness and Caffreys. Nice atmosphere, pool tables, but no food.

New Cross Inn:
Diagonally opposite the Marquis. This has wooden floors and does a reasonable Guinness. Usually fairly empty on an afternoon it becomes very popular later in the evening when the live band starts up.

Hobgoblin:
Formerly the extremely dire 'Rose Inn' this has had a recent facelift and change in management courtesy of the Hobgoblin chain. It is almost directly opposite New Cross Gate station and is run by a Palace fan (Brodie). It contains the usual array of lagers, a few ales, and a large range of wines and spirits. There is a large beer garden out the back with tables and sun umbrellas.

It is the only pub doing food and provides baps (£2), jacket potatoes (£2), omlettes (£2.50), burgers (£2), ploughman's (£3.50), scampi/chips/salad, steak/chips/salad (£3.95). There are usually three or four daily specials as well and vegetarians are catered for.


None of the pubs are really used by the home fans. The Marquis has a couple of Millwall supporters as does the New Cross Inn. There are about a dozen in the Hobgoblin but these are regulars and are well known by the management - who will not tolerate any trouble.

If you go into the Hobgoblin there are a couple of pictures of a baby behind the bar. This is Brodie's son and the youngest Palace supporter so be free with the compliments.

Other than that I wouldn't recommend drinking around the ground, most of the pubs are home only and you can drink inside the ground (Lager, Bitter & Beer are on offer), or alternatively stop en route. Recommended is a pub near London Bridge - The Wheatsheaf at Borough Market J at the junction of Borough High Street and Stoney Street.


We have been asked to keep away from the Hobgoblin afterwards as it was a *very* expensive re-fit. If anyone wants to stay on in the area the infamous 'Venue' (a large black building opposite the New Cross Inn) starts up around 8pm. A nightclub that usually filled with students from the nearby Goldsmith's College wearing very little, listening to tribute bands and drinking lots of cheap lager. Alright if you like that sort of thing.


Food
Nearest takeaway is Moby Dick’s on Ilderton Road near Rollins Street. Next door is the Ilderton Cafe, also along this road are shops including a bakers & chinese. There are several other places to eat around the area - including Sunshine Cafe on Rotherhithe New Road, Docklands Cafe at the junction of Rotherhithe New Road & Lower Road.

Some reasonably decent food such as chicken and chips is sold within the ground.


Thanks to James Evans, Graham Nealon & Phil Moore for their contributions.
