In the early 19th century the Unitarians used one room in what is now Tudor House in St Michael's Square. Philip Brannon, writing in 1849, stated that their meeting room was in an old house on the west side of St Michael’s Square (which could conceivably be a reference to Tudor House) in a room previously occupied by the then defunct Philosophical Society.

The Wesleyan chapel in Canal Walk was converted by Edmund Kell into a Unitarian meeting house in 1853 and used until 1861 when the Unitarian Church of the Saviour was opened in London Road.
