St Mary’s Hospital Chapel, Praed Street, Paddington
On the 1st floor of the Mary Stanford wing. I assume it dates from Sir William Emerson’s extensions of 1904?
Tyburn Convent Chapel (Shrine of the Sacred Heart and Tyburn Martyrs), Hyde Park Place, Bayswater Road, Bayswater (Roman Catholic)
The current building is by F.G. Broadbent and dates from 1958-1962, based on H.S. Goodhart-Rendel’s designs. The chapel is divided by a grille between the lay nave and the nun’s sanctuary area.
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.
Kings College Chapel, The Strand, Westminster
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.
