Watch a band in a train shed

With London losing so many great nightclubs and live music venues, it's time to embrace those we have, so the Roundhouse is an arts centre in Camden, beside Chalk Farm Tube, housed in a Grade II* listed Victorian engine shed. Whilst, sadly, the Victorians didn't know how to not build a pillar in the middle of where the band should be, it's otherwise a good venue with plenty of space, bars and pretty good sound and lighting.

Unusually for such a venue, it's publicly owned, having been run by Camden Council since the early eighties. Whilst it's not just a venue for bands, and hosts a whole range of arts events and also workshops and events for young people, most people will know it as a venue which attracts many of the great and good in popular music to demonstrate their talents.
