SPOT CHECK: ROM Skatepark

So Legendary It Has Listed Status

Words and photos by Robin Pearson


ROM is like the big brother to Harrow, it has many of the same style bowls but much deeper and gnarlier. It also has more to offer, with a great performance bowl and the famous moguls, plus a whole mixture of wooden ramps.

Built in 1978, it’s quite incredible how well the place has survived over the years. In 2014 it was granted Grade II Listed status, making it the first skatepark in Europe with that achievement.

Every summer the infamous ROM JAM comes round. See below for our video of the 2015 ROM JAM.
