  • Visitor Information

Shunt VaultsThe madcap Shunt theatre company has created London's most unpredictable nightspot in the railway arches beneath London Bridge Railway Station. Each week's entertainment is curated by a different Shunt artist. Enter via a little door on Joiner Street in London Bridge Tube station and one night you may find yourself drinking in a perfect recreation of a 1930s pub while a play crackles through the radio, the next week wild burlesque dancers will be twisting round you to a sci-fi soundtrack. Occasionally, there's not much on at all, but the venue itself is well worth seeing, a vast and terrifying space hidden in Victorian vaults beneath the London Bridge railway terminus, with lots of rooms, corridors and eccentric art to explore.
