2 Glynrhondda Street

2 Glynrhondda Street in Cathays, Cardiff is accepted as the first mosque in the United Kingdom.[1][2][3]

The mosque was founded by Yemeni and Somali sailors on their trips between Aden and Cardiff Docks,[4] and recorded by the Register of Religious Sites (now maintained by the Office of National Statistics) as a registered place of worship from 1860.

It is still a registered and working mosque today under the title of the “Al-Manar Islamic & Cultural Centre”.[5]
