#229 of 264 in Historic Sites in London
The Russian Orthodox Cathedral of the Dormition of the Mother of God and All Saints is the cathedral of the Russian Orthodox Diocese of Sourozh.


It holds the diocese's administrative meetings as well as weekly, seasonal and special services. Its building is the Victorian former church of a wealthy parish of its era that faces the north-east green of Ennismore Gardens, Knightsbridge, London, England. The main (western) façade is a very close copy of that of the Basilica of San Zeno, Verona, in Verona, Italy since remodelling in 1891.
Its interior is largely unchanged from that of its Anglican forebear church built, which was built in 1848–1849. The architect was Lewis Vulliamy.

  • Russian church, was a great experience. Very clean and quiet place, looks like newly renovated. The staff is friendly, shop have quite big variety of everything you need for religious purposes. Prices are good, not high. Looks like they have some educational classes for children and help group for those who really needs it. Worth to have a visit.
  • Absolutely fascinating. So different. The icons were perfect and I wonder how and where they have obtained them from. It was so different to the other cathedrals and high churches I have visited over the years. Although I did not get to speak with the ladies who were attending to the cathedral others did and gained a lot more information than me unfortunately. I did Find it very interesting with all the artifacts.
