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

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

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...

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.
