We are delighted to offer tours of our beautiful Central Synagogue. As one of the oldest synagogues in London, the Central attracts tourists from far and wide throughout the year. We offer frequent tours for the general public and for schools.
General public tours
Our visitors hail from all backgrounds. They include people who have researched London Jewry in their far-flung native countries. Or curious passers-by who notice our beautiful stained glass and mosaics on Great Portland Street – and then tentatively knock on our door. Many had no idea that such a magnificent place of worship existed in the midst of London’s bustling West End!
If you would like to visit our Synagogue, it is best to call the office in advance to ensure that someone is available to show you around. If you would like to attend a Shabbat Morning Service, kindly contact the office prior to your visit and we will take your details in advance for our security team.
