    the light is always on inside and it has signs of some security company but i don't think anyone actually lives there...it seems a bit of a shithole though, it looks better in the pictures that you linked to than in real life. you can look into the upper floor windows from the platform of brixton mainline station iirc and see that there's nothing inside.

    although that internal shot of the clocktower does look good i have to say. 2 weeks ago you could reach the clocktower by walking down the railways viaduct, now the scaff that gave access to viaduct is gone. but i'm sure there's other ways if somebody's detemined enough. i was always more interested in the vent shaft that's right at the back of the hotel - it goes down to victoria line plaforms lol.

    Yeah what he said as well lol.

    I think its fairly stripped in there since they must have cleared it up each time it changed hands ofter the closure then serveyers, visited, then Prince Charles, then a last big clean up before the sale. Saying that ive not been in n prob wont try to hard to

    Also the mega bowl lazor quest is still empty as is ceasers i believe but the pool and prob the ice ring is now rubble as is the multistory car park and a couple of other bits in the area, but yeah there is other stuff ;)

    This place was squatted in the early 2000s for a few years and the bar was re-opened to host events!
