Opened on the 5th December 1877 the Union chapels main space is a fantastic example of the Victorians obsession with all things Gothic, it is octagonal in shape and is galleried on 5 sides, The sight lines to the stage are excellent. The detail in the craftsmanship is wonderful. 

The Main Auditorium at Union Chapel speaks for itself; it creates an ambiance and intimacy between audience and performers unlike any other venue in London.

It has great acoustics and has a very intimate feel for such a large space; it is a perfect setting for performance, meetings and conferencing.

It has a racked wooden floor with fixed pews (pews cannot be removed).

The Union Chapel is a vibrant busy multi use building that is used for a variety of commercial and community activities.
