Wigmore Hall Reviews
Rest was understaffed, no manager present to complain to, service was slow and standard of food poor, which sadly reflected in the performance and standoffish ushers along with a lack lustre... more »
beautiful hall, seats reasonably comfortable, high quality classical recital for an hour- and all for only £5! I thoroughly recommend it more »
One of my favorite experiences in London is a Monday Midday Concert at Wigmore Hall. Classical music livers gather for one hour of great music in the acoustically outstanding venue. Sunday "Breakfast Concerts" are also a treat. Wigmore Hall has a very pleasant restaurant. Patrons are very pleasant and the staff is very kind and helpful. Do not overlook this venue
One of my favourite performing spaces in London. Intimate yet grand, with a world-class lineup of chamber and solo recitals. Also offers £5 tickets to under 35s, which is an amazing deal.
