The Vaults

The Vaults

The Vaults is London’s home for immersive theater and alternative arts. Their mission is to collaborate and conspire, embracing artists from all walks of life to come together and inspire others.


Set in a maze of disused railway arches under Waterloo station in London, they encourage those that have a natural affinity to the unusual, the daring and the unknown. They want talented artists from every vocation to mutate their art; to make stuff that is challenging, accessible and imaginative. They are unparalleled, they are unexpected and they are under your feet.


The Leake Street graffiti tunnel, founded by Banksy, is a public space where you can view the ever-changing work at any time.

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
