Getting To Millwall

I like going to see Ipswich play at Millwall.

The New Den is a compact ground, where away supporters get a good view of the action.  In fact, as the view is one of the best, the stewards are generally friendly and it is an easy ground to get to by public transport, it is one of the best away experiences in English football, if you support a reputable club.

It is also exceedingly good value, as my senior ticket cost just £17 and of course because of my Freedom Pass, I had no travel costs. So my total expenditure was much the same cost as taking a lady to the cinema. Although in that case, I’d probably have to buy a drink or even a meal!

I went by taking the Overground to Canada Water station, from where I got a P12 bus directly to the ground. Even though, these buses are every 20 minutes on a Bank Holiday, I still did the journey in just over thirty minutes.

Coming back, I walked to South Bermondsey station and took the train to London Bridge, from where I got a 141 bus home.

wikipedia also says that a 21 bus goes close to the New Den, so as it goes past the end of my road, I might try that next year. You get off at Ilderton Road.

It certainly is the easiest ground for me to get to, with the probable exception of Arsenal’s ground at The Emirates.  But that would cost a lot more for a match.
