The Rosary Shrine



Welcome to the Diocesan Shrine of Our Lady of the Rosary & St Dominic’s Parish



Our Lady of the Rosary and St Dominic, Southampton Road, London NW5 4LB

This historic Catholic church and Diocesan Shrine served by the Dominican Friars, is situated on Southampton Road, London NW5 4LB, just a short walk from Primrose Hill and Hampstead Heath. It is easily accessible by bus from King’s Cross Station (bus no.46) or Westminster Cathedral (bus no.24) which stop right at ‘St Dominic’s Priory’, or a ten-minute walk from Belsize Park or Chalk Farm Underground stations, or from Hampstead Heath or Gospel Oak Overground stations. This beautiful church – the first in the world with distinct altars and chapels for every mystery of the Rosary – serves as the parish church for the local area, but it is also the Diocesan Shrine of the Holy Rosary for the Archdiocese of Westminster. We welcome parishioners and visitors from near and far. Do have a look at the virtual tour above, and then plan a pilgrimage to come and see it in person! Here, in the Shrine of Our Lady of the Rosary, all are welcome into the embrace of Mary’s House in London.

Please note that until the coronavirus crisis is over, the church has special opening hours in place: We will be open from 3–7pm (Mon–Fri); from 4:30–7pm (Sat); and on Sunday from 8am–1:30pm, then from 5–7:30pm. Masses will also be livestreamed: MON–SAT at 6pm; and SUN at 12 noon and 6pm on youtube.com/c/RosaryShrineUK
