The London Central Mosque is located in the Regent's Park, and was built over 50 years ago. Architecturally, the building is stunning, with a 25-meter golden dome, marble floors and intricate mosaics. However, the mosque is not merely a showpiece; practically, it can accommodate 4,500 people for prayer meetings, which are held six times every day. The Islamic Cultural Centre is next to the mosque. This provides London's Muslim community with a reference library and concert hall, as well as a place for meetings, and educational outings for children. The Centre is also licensed to conduct wedding ceremonies.
