Off the Queen's Walk in the undercroft of Southbank Centre is an iconic, graffti-adorned skatepark, which is easily one of the best in London.



This area of Southbank has been specially reserved for skateboarders for several decades. The park also attracts BMXers, bladers, buskers, and street performers. Tourists and locals frequently crowd around the perimeter to enjoy the spectacle of extreme art and extreme sports.

The surfaces are well cared for (though rain puddles tend to accumulate) and graffiti artists are legally authorised to decorate the park. The graffiti art has changed dramatically over the years and previous images are archived at Graffiti Archaeology under the heading 'Undercroft'.



The park is comprised of various ledges, ramps, rails, and stairs and always provides an exciting and lively atmosphere.

The park is free and open all year round.
