This skatepark is nestled under the arches of the railway bridge that leads to London Bridge station, near the White Grounds estate. With a series of stacked and staggered angled ledges in the centre, then to maximise the use of space transitions and banks straight against the walls. Also a mini ramp tucked around the corner.




Nestled in Dartford’s Central Park opposite the cafe is Dartford Skatepark, which is quite a large park with bowl and street course. Although it seems the bowl floods after any rainfall and needs a couple of days of sun to dry out, otherwise the bowl is a decent size U shaped layout with nice variations to depth and coping the bowl joins the street section with a spine ramp.


Telegraph Hill


This skatepark is a shining example of what can be achieved with an odd shape of land, wrapped around a football/basketball court in this case. With a concrete miniramp and small hip and bowl section at each end, connected by a strip with a long bank and a pair of ledges in a line.


Mile End


Mile End is a heavily street orientated skatepark, although there is a small swimming pool style bowl and wooden mini ramp indoors. It has several ledges spread out around the park, lots of flat land areas, manual pads and a nice hip with a ledge on top. It’s very much a good park to train your street skills up.




The undercroft of the Southbank Centre has pretty much been the beating heart of London skateboarding for around 40+ years now. With a love hate relationship between the building’s owners and skateboarders (Brilliantly documented in the documentary “Rollin Through The Decades” by Winstan Whitter). The area set aside for skateboarders comprises of a variety of ledges, banks and a set of stairs. There is also a railing to stop tourists from wandering a bit too close and getting in the way too.


Muswell Hill


Muswell Hill skatepark in the North end of Muswell Hill Sports Ground, best accessed from Osier Cresent. Is a nice little concrete plaza style park with couple of hips and flatbanks, and a few different size ledges. A pier seven style manual pad over a small two stair drop. Also handrail and hubba ledge. In the centre are two granite ledges, which is quite rare.




Woolwich skatepark is about a five minute walk from the Woolwich Arsenal DLR station, set next to the Thames. The park is fairly generic skatelite ramps of tarmac affair, albeit in a circular fenced off area. There are the usual array of quarter pipes, flat banks, hips, hubbas and driveways, with a smattering of flat bars and ledges too.


Derby Road, Watford


This skatepark is just over the road from Watford High Street, Overground station near the shopping centre in Watford. It is quite large with a variety of things across the site, surrounded by a low wall which has been capped with coping. The surface of the park is mixed concrete and tarmac which can be a little rough in places especially at the joins.


Pole Hill, Uxbridge


This park is quite spacious with black painted metal ramps on a concrete floor. At one end is a quarter pipe next to a flatbank with a sub box. In the centre a nice large pyramid with bubba ledge and rail along one side. That leads into a flatbank with ledge. Then off to one side is a T Block ledge and manual pad, with a whippy quarter pipe on the back of the higher ledge.
