A place of serenity and contemplation
This historic Grade II* listed secular chapel, originally part of the former Middlesex Hospital, was, for nearly a century, a place of quiet contemplation for staff, patients and visitors alike. It was restored in 2015 after years in darkness. The Fitzrovia Chapel is an exquisite place to celebrate a life, hold an intimate family event, and come together in peaceful reflection away from the hectic outside world. As a secular chapel, doors are open to all to experience the beauty and serenity the unique building offers.
