Directions

Carry on along the Brompton Road until you reach the Oratory, one of the principal Catholic churches in the UK, and the home of the gentle and much-revered Cardinal John Henry Newman, whose statue stands beside the forecourt. Turn left up Cottage Place, which will lead you past a quite different sort of church, Holy Trinity Brompton, the seat of the Alpha Course, a charismatic evangelical branch of the Anglican faith.
