Take a trip underground through London’s Old Vic Tunnels , now housing a hub of creativity – The House of Vans
London’s Old Vic Tunnels are set to be transformed into a den of creativity and community as footwear brand Vans announce the launch of their new project House Of Vans London.
Each of the tunnels situated under Waterloo Station will offer something different for visitors including bars and a cafe, a gallery where new artists can present their work and an underground gig space with a capacity of 850. Paying homage to the brands early sporting heritage, the most exciting offering from the new project is the cities first permanent indoor skatepark. The space will include a street-course, a mini-ramp section and a deep concrete bowl offering something for skaters of varying abilities. This could be the best news we’ve heard all year.
House Of Vans London is set to open on August 9th. But until then, this teaser video will have you bouncing Off The Walls with excitement for London’s new creative melting pot.
