The Suleymaniye Mosque (Turkish: Süleymaniye Camii) is a mosque at Kingsland Road in London, United Kingdom which serves mainly the British Turks community.[1] The mosque was funded by the UK Turkish Islamic Cultural Centre and the construction began in 1995 and was finally opened to the public in October 1999. With a total floor space of 8,000 square metres, the total capacity of its Ottoman style mosque is 3,000 people.

The mosque includes a conference and wedding hall, guest rooms, class rooms, and funeral service facilities as well as accommodation for the staff. It also has a popular canteen which has become something of a local land-mark and is becoming one of London's key Islamic centres.[2]

Prince Charles visited the mosque in 2001.[3]
