Forget the architecture, forget the religion (I myself am an atheist), Go for the music. As it should for a Church with a particular dedication to musicians. Sir Henry Wood is buried here apparently. A world-class choir provides effectively a free concert every Tuesday night....More

Wow, a large church, and welcoming, no problems getting into the church. Plus there were signs for the toilet as soon as one entered, so no problems about using the facilities if you so require. Light, impressive stained glass windows. I will go back. I...More

St. Sepulchre’s is the National Musicians’ Church. We were informed that in this church music and musicians are valued and appreciated. On the north side of the Church is a beautiful chapel dedicated to musicians.  The south aisle of this church is the regimental chapel...More

Went to visit prior to going to a meeting It's got a nice atmosphere with some great decor as it's a military church Well worth a visit but might be an improvement with music

It is misleading and wrong that this church advertises itself as "the musicians' church" as it has one of the worst acoustics for orchestral music I have ever encountered. We foolishly hired it for a concert without visiting first and almost all rehearsal time had...More
