An Islamic Centre but open for all. A huge library and place where everyone is welcome. Ladies section is separate but equally big and an open space. They have an onsiye book shop, restaurant and all the staff are working hard within the community to bring peace and harmony. They have their own children's school and free lectures and seminars that you can attend. Details on their website. I always find peace when I'm here.
One of the oldest and well established mosques in the centre of London. Mosque committee could discharge information on Islam to tourists in a more organized way. Has limited parking and a restaurant with good food at reasonable price.
