This is my favourite music venue in London. The sound is absolutely amazing and the views are even better. I went to see an acoustic show and the setting just made what was already a very special gig even better. Oh. And they sell ice cream. It is amazing. I wish more bands would play here.

One of my favourite gig venues in London. As it doubles up as a church, Union Chapel has a magical vibe to it, and they often light the gigs with candles, which is just wonderful. It's a big place, but thanks to the circular spacing of the seats, you usually have a good view wherever you're sat. Drinks are from the bar next door, but you can't take them into the main space with you.

This beautiful old church is a perfect music venue for the more folk inspired bands travelling the UK and the globe. Sitting in the pews, listening to your favourite bands be it acoustic or otherwise is a treat which really makes you feel as though you're living in another time, making you forget the outside world and immerse yourself in the music. If you ever get the opportunity to see a band here, do yourself a favour and go. You won't regret it and certainly won't forget the wonderful experience in a hurry.

Went here to see a gig. It is the most incredible building, and makes for such an amazing intimate venue. I love the innovation and multi functionality of this building. Beautiful.

Absolutely incredible venue for acoustic gigs. Totally haunting and so intimate that you have to make sure your phone is on silent or risk being glared at by everyone else in attendance. I try to get back a much as possible as it remains my favourite venue in the city by a long way.

Great music venue. Large church (which still also acts as a local community centre). Good seating (on wooden pews) gets you very close to the action for acoustic and smaller band sets. Sound quality marvellous owing to Gothic brickwork. Tea & snacks served in church. Nice bar and hot food served upstairs away from main auditorium. Rather scruffy public toilets.

Went there for a concert and a couple of movies and it is a really fantastic place for such events, really atmospheric, and very beautiful inside. As it is an old building it can be a bit cold though, specially when you are sitting down for a long time. So if you are going there on a cold evening put a couple of socks on and grab a hot drink in the bar!

Unforgettable gig venue. Beautiful setting and great views of the stage from the upper seats. Acoustics are good too but the bar is quite expensive and you can't take alcohol in the chapel.
