I've been to the Roundhouse for a few concerts in the last five years or so. It is quite small and intimate, certainly compared with Wembley etc, but that makes for a better atmosphere in my opinion. Clean toilets upstairs without a queue. Friendly helpful...More

Excellent location and less than 200 yards from a northern line tube station, the building, the over-all layout, big concourses, bars, toilets and staff are all first rate. Yes, there was a bit of a wait getting in (for security checks) sadly sign of the...More

We came here to see HIM on their farewell tour. The building is beautiful inside. The sound system was really good unlike some venues I've been in the past where it's hard to make out words or instruments.

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.
