The inside of the dome is decorated with broken shapes in the Islamic tradition. There is also a small bookshop and halal café on the premises. The mosque is joined to the Islamic Cultural Centre which was officially opened by King George VI in 1944. The land was donated by George VI to the Muslim community of Britain in return for the donation of land in Cairo by King Farouk of Egypt and Sudan on which to build an Anglican cathedral.
1900 - 1931 Several efforts were made to build a mosque in London, including one, initiated by Lord Headley, a convert to Islam.
1937 This project (Nizamia Mosque, later changed to present name) was funded by the Nizam of Hyderabad and the foundation stone of the mosque was laid on Friday, 4 June 1937, by HH Prince Azam Jah eldest son of Mir Osman Ali Khan the last ruler of Hyderabad State.

Beautiful mosque near Regents Park and Baker Street. Went to pray at this historic mosque. It was really beautiful and the courtyard very quiet and tranquil. Noticed that the dome and minaret needed some TLC and refurbishment.
Loved the location, layout, and experience at this mosque. Very happy to see people casually walking in off the street. The book store was top notch and they also have a restaurant in the basement!
