First visit to Roundhouse this week and had a great night. The sound was really good (far better than when we saw Stone Sour at Brixton in December). The venue isn’t big so we could be closer without getting squashed. Standing is flat so occasionally...More

I've been to many gigs at The Roundhouse and it is one of my favourite venues in London. The nearest tube station is Chalk Farm which is on the Edgware branch of the Northern Line but I prefer to get the tube to Camden Town...More

Our first trip to the Roundhouse for a gig. As experienced gig goers we went to the nearby Camden Assembly Pub for a drink which was lovely. We expected the Roundhouse like most gig venues to be overpriced for drinks with a lack of choice....More

Outside the glass doors on the pavement/steps. You may also have to queue upstairs outside the inner doors of the concert space itself. Hope this helps.
