The unused Old Vic Tunnels at London Waterloo becomes the UK’s first permanent indoor skatepark by House of Vans, following suit behind House of Vans Brooklyn. The multi-use 30,000 sq foot space caters to a variety of people from artists and musicians to skateboarders and bar hoppers. Tunnels are divided into four sections with 1 and 4 as dedicated skateparks complete with ramps, a street course, and a deep concrete bowl designed by skaters. Tunnel 2 contains 4 art studios and gallery space while tunnel 3 doubles as an 850-capacity event and musical venue. Finally, multiple bars, a screening room, and a cafe rounds out this haven of a space, thus truly claiming the title for the ultimate hangout.
