Since 1975 Allen Hall has been the Seminary for the Diocese of Westminster, preparing men for ministry as Roman Catholic priests. Located in Chelsea, it was originally the home of Henry VIII’s Chancellor, St Thomas More. The Mulberry Tree that St Thomas planted in the 1500’s still flourishes today in the seminary garden, one of the largest gardens in Chelsea.

Between July and August each year Allen Hall becomes a hostel. Situated in the heart of London, Allen Hall not only offers affordable bed and breakfast facilities, it also provides guests with a good base from which they can explore the diverse sights and delights of this wonderful metropolis.
