Get the Most from Your Visit

Opening Times

We are open each Wednesday between 11:00 and 16:00 for reflection and quiet thought. It is also an opportunity to look around the chapel and see for yourself the breathtaking interior of this hidden treasure in the heart of central London. If you are planning to visit us on a Wednesday with a group larger than 15 please let us know in advance by email as we are a small space.

Please check the events page for other occasions (such as the chapel’s own autumn exhibition) when you can visit. We take part in Open House London during September and the Fitzrovia-based cultural festival FitzFest.

Chapel’s Cultural Programme

The chapel has its own cultural programme culminating in an exhibition in autumn each year. The first exhibition was called The Ward and followed the lives of patients on the Broderip and Charles Bell wards of the former Middlesex Hospital using poignant black and white photographs by renowned photographer Gideon Mendel. The second year we asked Fitzrovia residents to tell us about a piece of art that really mattered to them, regardless of material value. The results were displayed in our Dwelling exhibition. In 2019, we explored the life of artist and former Fitzrovia resident Nina Hamnett through little-known drawings loaned from Tenby Museum and Art Gallery. The chapel’s next autumn exhibition will be in 2021 as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. We’ll announce details as soon as we can.

′This was my first encounter with HIV/AIDS, one that greatly impacted the course of my life and subsequent photographic journey,′ Gideon Mendel
