A really great place underneath Waterloo railway station. Good skate bowl and freestyle area, free entry to skate and BMX. It's always worth checking on the opening times as they have lots of other events on. The music gigs are often pretty crowded. There is...More

Cued for over an hour, and when we finally managed to get in we couldn't even see the band, and we couldn't get a drink, it was over the other side wing with no way of getting there, complete b***ocks, never again.

Me and my friends went to Girls Skate Night. We couldn't skate but staff was very helpful and willing to show us some tricks and give us tokens for free coctails. Great atmosphere and cool layout. We'll definitely come back.

Won tickets to see Royal Blood. Terrific venue. Great staff. Really well run. Have been many times to take my son here to skate. The above applies to those sessions. This place is a gem.

I visited to celebrate Communion Music's 10th Birthday and absolutely loved HOV as a music venue. Small enough to be intimate, but not so small it's uncomfortable. Great sound system, and it was so cool watching a gig underground within a labyrinth of tunnels! The...More
