Why locals love it

Part of a skater’s identity is their removal from mainstream culture and a journey ‘underground’ to allow that culture to flourish. The established brand of Vans don’t mind taking this idea literally, creating an amazing park in the vaults below Waterloo station. Here local skaters can enjoy their pastime in a haven designed just for them.

Why you should visit it

The House of Vans environment and culture of skateboarding is a welcoming one. If the quarter pipes and fun boxes are out of your league, the vaults still have much to offer; gallery spaces displaying local art and literature, a stage with a large dance floor and bar area, Vans skate museum and a café and viewing area near the park itself.

Special tip

Their website is constantly updating with movies being shown, exhibits on display and upcoming events. And be careful watching the skaters!
