A Little About This Space

Banksy put Waterloo’s Leake Street tunnel on the map when he held his Cans Festival exhibition here in 2008; now it’s London’s mecca for street artists and knowing urban art lovers. If you’re looking for somewhere a little different for your event, then you’ve come to the right spot. This event space underneath the railway arches comes with an alcohol licence and a kitchen.


Tourists, locals and artists come here to see (and contribute to) this ever-changing gallery, or use it as a cut-through to the South Bank. The Vaults attracts a mixed arty crowd to Leake Street with its edgy exhibitions and immersive theatrical shows. Around the corner on Station Approach Road, House of Vans fills up with skaters and gig goers from Thursday through Sunday.


The closest neighbour is The Vaults, although a second event space is coming soon.
