Plans to construct the temple were announced 10 August 1953, Church leaders broke ground 27 August 1955, and David O. McKay, president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints from 1951 to 1970, dedicated the London England Temple 7 September 1958. The temple serves Latter-day Saints in England and Wales. Since the first dedication the temple has been renovated. President Gordon B. Hinckley rededicated the temple 18 October 1992.

The 42,775-square-foot temple’s exterior is concrete and steel structure, with brick masonry walls faced with cut Portland limestone. The spire is sheathed in copper.

Currently, there are more than 20 temples in various stages of construction or have been announced throughout the world.
