London Central Mosque, London

Frederick Gibberd & Partners
Date Built
Park Road
The mosque occupies a site next to Regent's Park donated to the Muslim community of Britain by King George VI.  In 1944 an Islamic Cultural Centre was built here that the King opened.  In the 1970s a competition was held for the design of a mosque to be added to the site and Gibberd's submission was selected, a decade after he finished his Catholic Cathedral in Liverpool.  The mosque features a prayer hall capable of accommodating 5000 worshipers.
