#204 of 266 in Historic Sites in London
Grosvenor Chapel is an Anglican church in what is now the City of Westminster, in England, built in 1730s. It inspired many churches in New England. It is situated on South Audley Street in Mayfair.
The foundation stone of the Grosvenor Chapel was laid on 7 April 1730 by Sir Richard Grosvenor, 4th Baronet, owner of the surrounding property, who had leased the site for 99 years at a peppercorn rent to a syndicate of four “undertakers” led by Benjamin Timbrell, a prosperous local builder.
The new building was completed and ready to use by April 1731.
Soon after the original 99-year lease ran out in 1829 the chapel was brought within the parochial system as a Chapel of ease to St George's, Hanover Square.
The chapel has been the spiritual home to a number of famous people including John Wilkes, Lady Mary Wortley Montagu, Garret Wesley, 1st Earl of Mornington, and his wife (parents to the Duke of Wellington), Florence Nightingale, U.S. General Dwight D. Eisenhower and Bishop Charles Gore.

  • Spandrel walls Church attract the interest yet frugal while is no glitz in the Church of the local people on the left through the Church of the Immacualate Conception of parkland to the West, and went out to the street, but it was dark brown, Is recommended to church otherwise, it was a white ceiling and walls of love

  • Passing by today thought I would pop in for a bit of peace and reflection. Been a year today since my younger Sister died from cancer so this was a lovely Church to pop in to on my way to work and remember her. Really outstanding and made me feel a whole lot better for it.
  • Beautiful place to celebrate a wedding!
