The VaultsThe Vaults under Waterloo are an intriguing venue that play host to a number of underground events. Prime among them is the annual Vault Festival, an eight-week arts festival at the beginning of the year which encompasses 300 or so shows with a wide-ranging programme of fringe theatre, immersive performances, live music, discussions and late night parties. Approach the maze of underground tunnels via the Leake Street entrance and you'll encounter a long tunnel covered in street art, popular among urban artists and often used for photoshoots. Urban grit at its finest.
