St. Olav's Church and the southern entrance to Rotherhithe Tunnel
Because much of the former Surrey Docks had strong trade links to Scandinavia and the Baltic region, Rotherhithe has a Norwegian, a Finnish TQ3579 : The Finnish Church, Albion Street, SE16 and a Swedish church. See LinkExternal link.

There has been a Norwegian church in London since the late 17th century. The current church building (St Olav's, designed by John Love Seaton Dahl), was consecrated in 1927; the foundation stone was laid the previous year by Prince Olav (later King Olav V of Norway). King Haakon VII and the Norwegian government in exile regularly worshipped at the church during World War II, when the church was given the status of a pro-cathedral. See LinkExternal link.
