For context, this review is for the concert hall, which is a beautiful and intimate venue. The artist I saw there was amazing. Great to see and lovely to hear. As expected, acoustics are mesmerising and upon leaving, I felt so relaxed and 'zen'. Will definitely return without a doubt. Glad I discovered this place, I've been missing out.

An acoustically perfect concert hall for chamber music. Many of the world's best performers of Western classical music appear here. The Sunday morning concerts are just an hour long and very reasonably priced, attract a faithful audience of all ages and are a great way to become familiar with standard and lesser-known works.

Probably the best chamber music hall in the world, always packed with the most talented performers. It’s an absolute treat to have it continuously delivering outstanding music in an affordable fashion. If in doubt, pay a visit. A must for London.

I enjoyed a fantastic concert performed by students from the String Department of The Royal College of Music, and was incredibly impressed by their technical brilliance and musicianship. The concert line-up in the upcoming season brochure is outstanding in terms of wonderful musicians and repertoire. I wouldn't miss the opportunity to attend more concerts whenever visiting London.

Such a lovely place to go for performances and shows. Traditional but spacious. Wonderful acoustics during the concert. Brilliant venue, it is just fantastic. This is absolutely one of my favourite places in London.
