Westminster Cathedral Houses
Victoria Street, Victoria
Westminster Cathedral is one of the greatest secrets of London; people heading down Victoria Street on the well-trodden route to more famous sites are astonished to come across a piazza opening up the view to an extraordinary facade of towers, balconies and domes.
Itself a supreme achievement of art, the Cathedral is home to many distinguished works of artistic merit. True to the vision of its founder, Cardinal Vaughan, successive generations have embellished the great building with decoration of the highest quality.
Westminster Cathedral must be one of the busiest churches in the United Kingdom. Located in the heart of London, it is the mother-church of England & Wales. Whatever people see when they come to visit Westminster Cathedral it is at the same time a quiet place for prayer as well as a busy parish!
Described on completion as one of the finest meeting rooms in London, this Edwardian hall was designed by Cathedral architect John Francis Bentley and represents some of his finest work. It was restored to its original splendour and extensively modernised in 1994/5.
