Love the Roundhouse, my favourite music venue in London. You feel part of the event here, rather than being just a number. Relatively small and obviously round it produces an intimate experience. I like seeing different bands and this certainly attracts them. Too small for the big bands that are more interested in generating revenue, but a great place to... More

One of the most iconic music venues in London, Rock 'n ' Roll history oozes out from the brick work. Easy to get to a short walk up Chalk Farm Road, from Camden Tube Station. No matter were you stand or sit you get a great view of the stage , plenty of bars and toilets. If your in London... More

I'd been wanting to visit Roundhouse for years and waited until an artist who I wanted to see was performing there. It was worth the wait. Inside is architecturally interesting, beautiful even and as a concert venue it works very well. Fantastic to see The Dandy Warhols there. Recommended.

Generally love the Roundhouse for gigs as the acoustics are excellent and you generally get a great view wherever you stand. The concrete floor can be punishing on your feet so make sure you wear very comfortable shoes. Drinks are typical for a venue £5 for spirit with mixer.

Roundhouse is one of my favourite venue in London. It's not too big and have a fantastic atmosphere. It's home of great gigs. Not to mention its location, just at the edge of Camden.

Great venue, standing room tickets, you can see the band wherever you chose to perch. Sound suffers the nearer you get to the stage but hey ho. Only disappointment was my double gin and tonic........no gin! Made management aware, didn't make a huge issue out of it but....... watered down gin or optic not working? I'm sure the latter is...

Went with my boyfriend for the Chainsmokers concert. We had standing tickets at the top and turned out to be great for us. We didn't have cash for the cloakroom and were a bit disappointed until we realised we wouldn't be in a crowded area, we had a great view and space to dance. The bar was slow but unless... More

Saw The Chainsmokers here and the venue has some of the best acoustics I've ever encountered. Some fantastic sounds resonate through the Roundhouse. Easy to get to and helpful staff.

First time visiting The Roundhouse (to see Michael Palin and Terry Gilliam interviewed by Sanjeev Bhaskar). The box office staff were very friendly and helpful. The seating was quite comfortable surprisingly and the actual arena itself is pretty spectacular. From what I could tell, you would get a pretty good view of the stage from almost any seat. The staff... More
