The Union Chapel is a multipurpose complex located in a beautiful church building on Compton Terrace. This music venue acts as a working church with the unique organ as well. In addition to that, it is also a charity centre for the homeless. Nowadays it is one of the most favourite and busiest places in London, boasting 800 people seating capacity that serves guests for more than 25 years.
The Union Chapel is easily accessible by bus, tube, and train.
By train and tube: if you choose to travel by tube, the closest tube station would be Highbury & Islington on Victoria line. The Union Chapel will be just five minutes away from the station. You can also arrive at Angel station on the Northern line, but be prepared for a twenty-minute walk to the venue. In case you wish to travel by train, the closest train station would be Highbury & Islington. There are also connections to Victoria, Kings Cross, and Stratford International.
By car: your route will primarily depend on your departure point. Just note that the Chapel is situated in a Zone E (Controlled Parking Zone).
International: if you are travelling from Heathrow Airport, take the Piccadilly Line and then make a switch to Victoria Line at Green Park Station. Get off at Highbury & Islington and the Union Chapel will be within three minutes walking distance.
It is strongly recommended to use public transport because parking is extremely limited - London Union Chapel does not have its own parking. Nevertheless, there are few two and four-hour pay and display parking lots in the area. There is also no parking bays for the disabled people outside Union Chapel.
