Welcome to one of London’s hidden gems – the Fitzrovia Chapel!
In a golden fever – the Fitzrovia Chapel
Hidden behind tall buildings between Mortimer, Cleveland, Nassau and Riding House Street there is the beautiful Fitzrovia Chapel. Build on Pearson Square, she was once part of the now demolished Middlesex Hospital. When a new hospital was build at the end of the 1920s it was rebuild around the Chapel.
Unique event location and church
Today the chapel is mainly used as space for art projects and concerts. For a truly unique wedding you can hire the room for the ceremony and reception.
Useful stuff for your visit
- The Chapel is open on selected days only. Each Wednesday between 11 am and 4 pm you are welcome for meditation or prayer.
- The address is 2 Pearson Square, London W1T 3BF
- It’s a 5 minutes walk from tube station “Goodge Street”
- Latest events can be found on the Chapel’s homepage.
Art on the square before the Chapel
On Pearson Square there is an interesting sculpture by Peter Randell-Page: “The One and the Only” is a granite boulder inscripted with 29 of the world’s scripts and symbols. There is Japanes and Cyrillic, Sanskrit, the script of the Tai-Dam, N’Ko and many more.
