#130 of 263 in Historic Sites in London
St George's, Hanover Square, is an Anglican church in the City of Westminster, central London, built in the early eighteenth century. The land on which the church stands was donated by General William Steuart, who laid the first stone in 1721. The church was designed by John James and was constructed under a project to build fifty new churches around London (the Queen Anne Churches). It is situated in Hanover Square, near Oxford Circus, in what is now the City of Westminster. Owing to its Mayfair location, it has frequently been the venue for high society weddings.
A civil parish of St George Hanover Square, and an ecclesiastical parish, were created in 1724 from part of the ancient parish of St Martin in the Fields. The boundaries of the ecclesiastical parish were adjusted in 1830, 1835 and 1865 when other parishes were carved out of it. The ecclesiastical parish still exists today and forms part of the Deanery of Westminster St Margaret in the Diocese of London. The land for the church was donated by General Sir William Steuart.

  • Hard to find with all the building around it. The front looks more like a bank. Organ inside is very powerful and commanding sound. Stained glass excellent.  more »

  • Beautiful church but often has a number of homeless people sleeping just outside it. Couldn't it be opened up so they could sleep inside?!
  • Breathe in, look around and marvel that, around 400 years ago, George Frederick Handel sat and worshipped in this building. Although it is an Anglican church, the layout like a Methodist church, with a prominent pulpit and a gallery all around. The names of churchwardens back to the early 1700s are written on the woodwork, minor saints memorialized.
