The London England Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is situated about 25 miles south of London in the county of Surrey. It was the first LDS temple built in the United Kingdom and the second in Europe, following the temple in Bern, Switzerland.
Dedications of the site, groundbreaking and the temple itself were offered by President David O. McKay. Following some extensive work decades later, the temple was rededicated in 1992 by President Gordon B. Hinckley.
On the same site are additional structures that serve temple workers and patrons along with mission offices. A missionary training center was relocated to the Preston England Temple in Chorley, Lancashire.
The Moroni statue seen in these views was placed on the spire using a helicopter in 2008.
