Mosques around Oxford
Central Oxford Masjid / Islamic Cultural Centre
This is the largest mosque in Oxford, situated on Manzil Way, just off Cowley Road. A popular choice for out-of-term Jumu’ah prayers and (if during term time) Eid prayers. It is probably the furthest mosque from the centre, being a 25 minute walk or 5-10 minute cycle.
Asian Cultural Centre
Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies Mosque
The OCIS Mosque was opened in March 2016 for congregational as well as Jumu’ah prayers. The beautiful building blends the architectural features of the traditional Oxford colleges with the forms and styles of the classical period of Islam and is definitely worth a visit.
Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies
A medium sized mosque on Stanley Road, just off Iffley Road. A popular choice for Jumu’ah and Eid prayers, but a similar distance from the centre of Oxford to the Central Mosque.
2 Stanley Road
Ahlul Bayt Mosque
A Shia mosque built in 2013, 10-15 minutes from the city centre by bike or bus, or a 15 min walk from Cowley. The mosque organises regular programmes in English and Urdu.
1 Oxford Road
Bangladesh Islamic Education Centre and Mosque
A very small (but conveniently located) mosque on Tyndale Road, just off Cowley Road. It takes approximately 10 minutes to walk, 5 minutes or less to cycle there. A popular choice for evening prayers due to the close proximity to Cowley Road.
