Wigmore Hall opened in 1901 as the Bechstein Hall. It was built by a a C. Bechstein Pianoforefabrik, a German piano manufacturer that had it's showroom right next door. During the First World War the hall was confiscated as enemy property due to it's German ownership. It was sold in an auction and re-opened in 1917 as Wigmore Hall.

The hall, which was recently and extensively refurbished in 2004 is noted for having near perfect acoustics for classical music.

Rated 4.7 out of 5Wigmore Hall Star Rating

5 Star Rating Helpful staff. Relaxed atmosphere. Lovely venue. Beautiful sound

John Smith - 1 day ago

5 Star Rating Perfect chamber music venue. Beautiful acoustic, and very atmospheric. In a lovely quirk, some of the lighting still runs on gas

Dan Norman - 3 days ago

5 Star Rating Best place in London to listen to classical music of various sorts. Big bonus: most events sell £5 tickets to under-35s.

Maurits W. - 1 month ago

5 Star Rating Brilliant venue for chamber and solo performances. Friendly but high brow ambience. Very good restaurant too, where you might run shoulders with famous musicians without knowing...

Andy Brooke - 1 month ago

5 Star Rating Stunning concert hall with good acoustics and comfortable seats. Very well organised performances. Staff were helpful, knowledgeable and efficient. Lovely bar and restaurant downstairs for pre-concert and interval drinks and nibbles. Spotless toilets downstairs with plenty of cubicles. They also have a cloakroom downstairs.
