It doesn't get much more relaxed than wandering around this site, it's a walk-in with no security and is basically a playground for street artists. Apparently up until the end of last year the whole place was a tip until a street artist known as King Trev took on the task of clearing out the crap to make the place more accessible. Since then some of London's finest graffiti artists including Tizer & Mr Cenz have taken to the place and made it their own with their colourful styles. I believe it also gets used for airsoft every couple of weeks and next door there is a remote control car race track run by Nitro Heaven, apparently the biggest in London. They are currently in trouble for the illegal tipping of hundreds of tyres next to the sports centre which has caused fines running into the thousands. I couldn't find any history on when the building was built or abandoned unfortunately but then my research skills perhaps aren't the best. The building is just a shell pretty much but if you like graffiti it's a very cool spot to visit and changes frequently.

Here's some pics (y)
