32 Welbeck Street was once the Russian Embassy in London and contained a chapel. In 1865 or 1872 or 1876 James Thomson added this chapel at the rear of the building facing onto the narrow Marylebone Mews. It closed in 1922 but has been restored and a prayer service was held in 2016 when Patriarch Kirill visited London.
