A little thread to help potential Mulsim Tourists, know where to stay, eat, do their prayers etc.

Accomodation

Hangar Lane is a good location with the Central Line Station, as well as 2 miles away from Wembley which has a few Halal (HMC Certified) Restaurants. It is also right on the A40 so it is easily accessible via the M40 as well as the North Circular Road.

Kensington

Cromwell Rd has lots of cafes open open on Sundays where you can get a spot of breakfast.

The Natural History Museum  As soon as you enter from Exhibition Rd you will see the Faith Room.  A word of warning, there are no special ablution facilities, so please make sure you already have it before you come here.  For Lunch there are a few restaurants in the area which were labelled Halal from the outside. You can look at the Zabiha website, however there are not any with HMC Certification in the area. There are many supermarkets, Sainsburys etc where sandwiches can be purchased.

There is no prayer room in Harrods, Customer Services are aware but at this moment, there isn't one there.

City and East End

East London Mosque in Whitechapel for Zuhr Salaat. There is a separate section and entrance for sisters here just before Main entrance.

Just outside is the Baraka eatery which is HMC Certified, there are other places in Whitechapel to eat which are certified so look the HMC Site.

The Islamic Centre on Berwick St in Soho for Maghrib. The location of the Masjid can be found below on the internet

West End and Westminster

There is a 100% Vegetarian place in Covent Garden called Food for Thought, link here http://www.timeout.com/london/restaur...

Regent St Mosque to read Asr\Maghrib.  In the evening you can venture down Edgware Rd and take in a little Middle Eastern Cuisine.

The above site also lists many other Masajid, Prayer Rooms etc so is very Handy if you are anywhere in the UK and need to find a place to pray

if you go to Berwick St from Oxford Circus it is at the bottom end of the St, from Regent St, follow signs for Brewer St Car Park and it is a bit further up. A word of warning, as the masjid is in Soho, there are a lot of Adult shops and you can avoid going past a couple of them.

The Masjid at the moment is next to a massive scaffold and has several floors. Ablution & bathroom was on the bottom floor for men and top floor for sisters, the sisters section is on the upper levels.

After Maghrib it is a short walk to Leicester Square and Trafalgar square to spend the evening there.
