Discover a tranquil world of art, fashion & history
Visit, film, exhibit, wonder, marry, celebrate, record, listen, show, be. The Grade II*-listed Fitzrovia Chapel, once the chapel of the former Middlesex Hospital and now beautifully preserved and restored, is a stunning hidden gem in the heart of the city. Never consecrated, the nineteenth century chapel is a luminous place to get married, display a beautiful object, steep yourself in history and architecture or just sit and reflect.
The Ward Revisited is now open until 5 February. Check our What’s On Page for opening times. Closed Mondays.
EXHIBITION: 6 JAN – 5 FEB 2023
