House of Vans London


Discover a labyrinth of creativity in the iconic Waterloo space.


The House of Vans is the physical manifestation of the culture and creativity that have defined the Vans brand since 1966. Always embracing and fuelling creative expression through art, music, skateboarding, BMX, street culture and fashion, the space offers a solid platform for the local communities to experience and engage with Vans’ ‘Off The Wall’ spirit. 

 Situated in former Old Vic tunnels, Vans has transformed the 30,000 sq ft space into a hive of cultural activity. Let the glow of neon lights and the iconic chequerboard flooring guide you into a succession of tunnels which includes a gallery, cinema, music venue, diner and last but not least a concrete bowl and ramp designed by pro skaters. The packed programme of events is almost always entirely free.
