Markfield skatepark
Markfield skatepark in Haringey is fully concrete, snaking slightly downhill.

It’s situated next to train tracks, and it’s a good distance away from local residents. This makes it suitable for some night shoots.

There is plenty of parking and a cafe onsite, at the nearby Markfield Beam Engine and Museum.

Seven Kings skatepark
Nestled in the historic Seven Kings Park in Redbridge, this small, local skatepark is popular with children and young adults. There is ample parking available onsite in the park’s car park.

Stockwell skatepark
Stockwell Estate’s skatepark is one of the oldest in London, and with the constantly changing Graffiti Wall of Fame, it’s one of the most iconic. There are P&D bays nearby.

Whites Grounds skatepark
Whites Grounds Skate Park is film-friendly, and situated under railway arches off Bermondsey Street. It has a similar look to the famous Southbank Centre skatepark. Whites Grounds can be booked for exclusive use.

Roundshaw Park skatepark
This classic skatepark in Roundshaw Park, Sutton, is popular with skaters, scooters and BMX bikers. It is well-facilitated with parking available nearby, changing rooms, toilets and showers. The park is a short drive from central Croydon.
