St. John’s Smith Square


A little known square in the middle of the political heart of London, Westminster, St John’s (itself designed by English Baroque master Thomas Archer) has been converted into a classical music venue and is an unforgettable experience.

Notes from St. John’s Smith Square:
A unique music venue in central London and a masterpiece of English Baroque architecture, St John’s was designed and built by Thomas Archer and has survived fire, lightning, bomb plots and the Blitz. The beauty of the building is matched by an exceptional acoustic and from its restoration as both church and concert hall in the late 1960s, St John’s has presented some of the finest classical talent in a programme featuring choirs, chamber orchestras and period instrument groups.
