The Archdiocesan Chapel of the Annunciation of the Mother of God (Greek Orthodox), 5, Craven Hill, Paddington W2 3ENT
This chapel is attached to the headquarters of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Thyateira and Great Britain a short way west of Paddington Station.
A college of the University of London. The chapel is entered from within the college buildings. The original building was by Robert Smirke and built in 1829-1831, however, it was drastically reconstructed by G.G. Scott in 1861-1864 with further decoration throughout the rest of the 19th-century. A restoration of 2000 by Inskip & Jenkins reversed mid 20th-century decorative changes and returned it to its 19th-century appearance. The glass was added at the 2000 restoration and is by Joseph A Nuttgens.
