Wigmore Hall

Top choice classical music in The West End

Wigmore Hall, built in 1901 as a piano showroom, is one of the best and most active classical-music venues in town (with more than 460 concerts a year), not only because of its fantastic acoustics, beautiful Arts and Crafts–style cupola over the stage and great variety of concerts, but also because of the sheer standard of the performances.

The Sunday morning concerts at 11.30am (which are followed by coffee or sherry) and the lunchtime events at 1pm on Mondays, which are broadcast live on BBC Radio 3), are excellent value (adult/concession £16/14).
