Saint Sophia's is the Greek Orthodox Cathedral found at the junction of Moscow Road and Ilchester Gardens, Bayswater. The first liturgy was celebrated here in June 1879. In 1922 the Greek Ecumenical Patriarchate chose St Sophia as a Cathedral of the Metropolis of Thyateira and Great Britain, encompassing all Orthodox Christians in the British Isles and Malta. During WWar II when London became the seat of the Greek government in exile St Sophia's became the cathedral of the Greek Nation. It was bombed during the Blitz but then repaired. It is of a Byzantine Revival design by the English architect John Oldrid Scott (1841-1913), the son of Sir George Gilbert Scott and his wife Caroline, née Oldrid. His father was the English Gothic Revival architect, designer of the Midland Grand Hotel, St Pancras Station and many other edifices.
