About

The guided tour of Methodist Central Hall gives you an insight in the history of one of the oldest meeting places in the UK.

The Great Hall boasts the largest European domed ceiling of its kind, and was chosen to host the Inaugural Meeting of the United Nations in 1946. The breathtaking grand organ features 4,731 pipes and was mastered by Andrew Lloyd Webber's father, who was the hall's Musical Director for more than 25 years.

Welcome to this hidden London jewel with its sweeping grand staircase, which is a replicate of the Paris Opera staircase, and magnificent marble foyer areas. Relax in the 200-seat cafe, serving warm and cold daily specials from 9am to 4pm everyday. There's also free wifi access for customers.
