Guided Tours of Oxford House's Victorian Chapel
Timings: 12-2.00pm

Found on the third floor of Oxford House (today an art and community centre), the chapel is one of the best preserved examples of Oxford House's beginning as a Christian orientated University Settlement.

The space is an excellent illustration of Neo-Jacobean architecture with a smart wooden screen at the entrance, wooden panelled walls and floors, and a high arched ceiling.

At the back of the chapel is a beautiful painting of the Crucifixion by Alfred Soord, dated 1914, and hidden by wooden panels until opened up.

Free to the public.
