FRIDAY 26 JULY, 13:00. A solider returns home from the Great War, shell-shocked, traumatised, changed. We witness the effects on family dynamics and sense of self.
Discover a tranquil world of art, fashion & history
Visit, film, exhibit, wonder, marry, celebrate, record, listen, show, dine, 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 have a secular wedding, display a beautiful object, steep yourself in history and architecture or just sit and reflect.
Exhibitions & Events
FRIDAY 23 AUGUST, 13:00 'She rises up out of a sea of faces and embraces me, embraces me passionately--- a thousand eyes, noses, fingers, legs, bottles, windows, purses, saucers all glaring at us an we in each other's arm oblivious. I sit down beside her and she talks--- a flood of talk.' - Henry Miller, Tropic of Cancer

“The most beautiful room in London you probably didn’t know about”
A jewel of a building
Why is the chapel so needlessly beautiful? There is a secret in its history which informed its design and construction, leaving the building a true urban wonder and shining architectural treasure.
Meet the chapel team
The people behind the chapel are a dedicated group from all walks of life. What binds them together is their love of this unique space and belief in its place in the cultural life of Fitzrovia.
