Whole experience was very uplifting. The male choir were very good . This is a beautiful Chapel and the stained glass windows are worth a visit on their own. We attended the Sunday morning service and we were made to feel very welcome.. This Chapel was very easy to find tucked behind the Savoy Hotel just off the strand in London WC2R ODA England.

Tiny church but every inch is covered in detail. The stain glass windows and standards are what make this little chapel special. Well worth a visit. Free too. Shame the churchyard wasn't open to public. Easy to find; right off the strand all in all lovely place

This is a beautiful, historic chapel, well worth a visit. It's best to attend a service (11am on a Sunday) to get the full experience: you are likely to get a good seat as it is not filled with tourists. The liturgy is traditional, dignified Church of England (Book of Common Prayer). The choir (boy choristers and gentlemen) is outstanding, its repertoire being typical of the English cathedral tradition. Music is also, incidentally, given a prominent and sensitive part in the liturgy - unlike some other churches where it is often relegated to the background during Communion.

I cannot comment on the experience as a casual visitor during the week, but if you attend Mattins or Eucharist on Sunday morning you will be able to look around a really beautiful and historically significant building, hear some excellent music, and participate in meaningful liturgy (good preaching too, by the way). The Chaplain and congregation are also exceptionally welcoming, so do say hello after the service.

Tip - visit the website (Google it) if you want to check the choir's music list.
