These pages are a searchable directory of mosques, properly masaajid, in the UK and Ireland, along with information about each one. It has been compiled primarily to assist Muslims who are unfamiliar with a locality to find out where the mosques are. It may also assist others providing services to the community, such as interfaith, local government, police and community organisations to find where they can make contact with different parts of the local Muslim community. (Thus it supports the remainder of this website, which is dedicated to overcoming the obstacles that Muslims ourselves have created, whether due to ethnic or sectarian divisions or by limiting access through 'approved' channels only.)
How many mosques in the UK?: About 1,500 actual mosques (compared with about 55,000 functioning churches, ie about 1 mosque for every 1200 Muslims and about 1 church for every 700 Christians). '55,000 churches' includes 16,000 CoE, plus 27,000 non-CoE in the Register of Places of Worship (in E&W only, plus about 3,000 non-Christian in RoPoW) plus Scotland and NI, plus numerous 'house' churches, regular prayer groups, Christian societies etc. comparable to the bodies listed in the directory. A report on the current detailed statistics concerning mosques is downloadable as a PDF file. Download latest report.
Directory Status: There are currently 2381 locations listed in the mosques directory of which about 1600 are masjids/mosques, prayer rooms and shared places such as hired halls and chaplaincies. The remainder include circa 30 very uncertain, 135 multi-faith, and 300 defunct addresses). Nearly all our masjid addresses are landmarked precisely, and about 180 are given approximate locations with notes to aid finding them when you are there. If you can help pinpoint these latter using local knowledge, please let us know by using the Feedback feature on each entry.
