Amazing church and concert venue,with very good acoustic. Remember to check the "Daylight music" series of events: a two hour live free concert. This happens on Saturday at noon, in some periods of the year. More info in the official website

Great music venue. Nice bar upstairs too for a quick drink after a gig. No alcohol allowed in the church itself though.

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.

One of the most beautiful event spaces in London. It's always great to see what they have going on around Christmas, normally a huge amount of themed events, and the mulled wine flowing! Acoustically the sound here is beautiful, and I've been lucky to see many acoustic sets there. Traditional church pews fill the space, so you may need to use the cushions to make your experience a bit more comfortable!

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.
