This intimate recital hall, with its warm and clear acoustics, is the perfect venue for vocal and chamber music. The decor is also beautiful. I organize my yearly trips to London around the programming at Wigmore Hall.

I have visited the Wigmore Hall on several occasions, most recently to listen to Mitsuko Uchida and Jorg Widmann - it was an amazing performance! Even ringing mobile telephones did not manage to ruin the concert. I only wished I had seats nearer the stage. And the only disappointment was the audience who started leaving the hall before the artists... More

The Wigmore Hall (originally the Bechstein Hall - after the celebrated piano manufacturer) is known across the world as the UK's pre-eminent venue for Classical reciitals and chamber concerts. Indeed, over the years, many musicians, who have gone on to international acclaim, have made their London debut there. It is justly famed for its intimacy and acoustics as well as... More

I've listened to many live radio 3 concerts over the years from the Wigmore Hall so as I was in London I decided to attend one. It was easy to find the location of the hall which was good. I booked my ticket on line and found that the on line layout matched the hall. I enjoyed the experience hugely.... More

Wigmore Hall is a great venue for chamber music and small groups. The acoustics are great and the setting is beautiful. Seating in the balcony gives great views and in some senses is better than sitting in the more expensive seats downstairs.

This intimate, elegant & lavishly gilded concert hall is like a jewel box filled with a wonderful variety of quality music from all over the world. Unlike the harsh Brutalism of the vast Barbican, the Wigmore provides a more personal experience that transports audience members, seated close to the compact stage, back to times before everyone attended concerts clutching their...

We love the concert of light chamber music, a perfect way to spend the morning, you're in, you're out, you're good to go!

Easy booking and ticket collection process (although no etickets). Great acoustics of the venue. Very classy decor. Venue is ideal for classical music connoisseurs or keen amateurs. We went a couple of times. Total performance lasts about 2 hours. Main shortcoming is that the seats are not the most comfortable and you feel a bit squeezed in. Overall very nice... More

I've been here for several concerts in recent months and am always impressed by the first rate performances. The ensembles are of the highest quality and the venue is immaculate. Sitting near the front of the hall allows you to see the performers up close, a fascinating experience and great insight into the nuances of chamber performance. I was made... More

Staying in Marylebone

Neighbourhood Profile
Marylebone
Marylebone offers what so many London neighbourhoods cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience. Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged between the northeastern corner of Hyde Park and the southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it from Soho and Mayfair, exclusive Regent Street marks its border with Fitzrovia, and cosmopolitan Edgware Road serves as its western edge. Within this enviably situated quarter are an array of outstanding restaurants (from Michelin darlings to down and dirty cheeseburgers), an impressive assortment of independently owned shops, and some of the city's quietest and most pleasant nooks, crannies and cobbled lanes.
