Victoria Station, SW1P

The Space

Footstool restaurant is located in the crypt of St John's Smith Church and features beautiful brick arches.

A Baroque Church known as one of Westminster's "Hidden Gems", mainly used for classical concerts, St John's Smith Square is situated in Westminster, 3 minutes from the Houses of Parliament.                                                                      

Built in 1728 during Queen Anne's Reign, it is composed of the main Concert Hall and the Footstool Restaurant. The story goes, when asked about the design that should have been adopted for the new church, the ageing and intemperate Queen was in no mood to answer. She petulantly kicked over her foot stool and demanded that the church should be designed "like that" - in the shape of her up turned stool. It is from this outburst that St Johns gained the epithet "the Footstool".

Evenings/Weekends:  Only open if we have concerts.
