One of a kind British heritage

A little awkward to get to from central London, but worth the visit if you have an interest in Islamic history in Britain. The mosque is very small on the inside, but it's a truly beautiful old building. The door was unlocked at my time of visit so I think you can just turn up and have a look inside. Definitely a change of pace from other historical sites around the UK.

Also check out the Islamic Peace Garden nearby!

Old mosque

Nice old mosque in Woking. It’s a 15 minute walk from the train station but worth a look. Recommended.

Disappointed Big time
Sep 2019 • Business
I’ve been working in guilford for few weeks and I was travelling all the way from east london. My shift hours are normally 15-17 hrs and I work 3 days a week. As I was working nearby mosque thought I could stay in my car for few hours before Midday prayer as it’s a long way back to home for me after work. I was peacefully parked in mosque and I’ve taken permission from the guy called hafiz a caretaker. But as I was their today Big bearded tall guy Imam approach me and told me to leave the mosque as he said I’m not allowed to stay there by law made by mosque committee.
As they owned the mosque a public funded community place. I was so disappointed and frustrated but had no option but to leave.
It left me with a thought of how these so called Imams and preachers have lost the concept of hospitality that Islam teaches us and how to behave with traveller accordingly. Allah help us all.

They were really inviting and here’s us with a tour of the different sections. Beautiful artwork. The gardens are beautiful and peaceful. Ample space for parking . Unless thee is. Big funeral.

Kept so well inside and out. Worth a visit! I used to play there as a child. It was very quiet then, not so many people.

Sense of peace surrounding the grounds . Main door open so was allowed to glance in . Didn’t enter in , was wearing shorts and never enter place of worship inappropriately dressed. Worth a visit

Seen it from the train many times

Heritage open days occur every September when different buildings open their doors to visitors.

We took the opportunity to visit the mosque and were warmly welcomed

The original mosque dates back to 1889 and is a stunning building both inside and out, We were shown around this and the building that is now used for praying.

Prayers took place whilst we were there and seats were provided to allow visitors to remain.

Worth a visit

What a beautiful place
Sep 2017 • Couples
We visited on the Heritage Weekend and were lucky enough to have a very interesting talk and view of this mosque. First time I have ever been in a mosque and it was fascinating. So many similarities to Christianity! All the people were friendly and welcoming. A most beautiful building.

This mosque used to have a golden dome and was a beauty to behold when passing on the train as it's stepped back from the road.

Some years ago the dome was painted green and it doesn't hold the beauty it once had.

Lovely mosque accomodating and serene
Nov 2015 • Family
Beautiful mosque that has been improved over the years. I am a muslim female and love the fact that this mosque is welcoming to sisters at any time of prayer. I tend to travel for my job and have come across many mosques that do not have facilities for women to pray so it is refreshing that women are able to pray here.

The surroundings are beautiful as well. Regular events such as Ramadan and Eid prayers are well organised.
The mosque tend to hold annual open days where non muslims can visit.

The one thing the mosque could improve on is the women's ablution facilities. It would make the mosque more inviting for females knowing they can comfortly do their ablutions and pray at the mosque and thereby attend more often!

Overall a great place of worship.
