The best music venues in London

Discover where in the capital Londoners love to see live music

Vote now for London’s favourite music venue 2015

As part of the inaugural London Music Awards, organised by the Mayor's Music Fund and sponsored by Raymond Weil, Time Outers were given the chance to decide which of the capital's great concert halls, clubs and gig venues should be awarded the title of 'London's Favourite Venue'. 

After a month of voting, the Union Chapel in Islington was announced as the winner, making this the second time that the Union Chapel has been voted the best gig space in London by our readers – it won our poll back in 2012.

Second place in this year’s poll went to Cecil Sharp House, the folk music mecca near Regent’s Park. The headquarters of the English Folk Dance and Song Society narrowly beat Barbican Hall into third place. All three venues – and the other 17 on our shortlist – are well worth checking out.
