The Annunciation is a dramatic building in a fascinating and fast changing part of London. Pevsner notes that to enter the Annunciation is to have stumbled upon 'a fragment of a major medieval church'. The past is tangibly present. Details about the building can be found by clicking the sidebar.

The church is also home to a Calvary War Memorial, on the corner of Old Quebec Street and Bryanston Street. It commemorates those who lost their lives in WW1, including local service men. It is thought that the memorial was installed shortly after construction of the church and that the design is also by the architect Walter Tapper. Local residents and passing visitors come to pay their respects, lay flowers, pause to reflect, or pray for peace by the hustle and bustle of Oxford Street. You can read more about it here, as well as see a potfolio of pictures. The list of names is set out on our dedicated webpage.
