Lonely Planet review

This is one of the best and most active (400 events a year) classical-music venues in town, not only because of its fantastic acoustics, beautiful art nouveau hall and great variety of concerts and recitals, but also because of the sheer standard of the performances. Built in 1901, it has remained one of the world's top places for chamber music.

The Sunday coffee concerts at 11.30am and the lunchtime ones at 1pm on Monday (both adult/concession £12/10) are excellent value. Evening concerts cost between £15 and £35.
