St Mary Abbots Church stands in the heart of Kensington on the junction of Kensington High Street and Kensington Church Street, just a little west of Kensington Gardens in London. There has been a church here for over 1000 years, though the current building dates from 1872, designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott, who also designed the font found by the west door.

St Mary Abbots boasts the highest spire in London and is well known for the spectacular stained glass windows, including the famous 'Healing' window which was funded by the Royal College of Surgeons. Several of the windows were blown out by bombing in WWII and subsequently replaced. The staves on the altar also date from the 1870's and in the south transept is a memorial to Edward, seventh earl of Warwick and seventh Earl of Holland, carved in 1721.

St Mary Abbots Church is open to the public during the day, who are welcome to look around and escape the pace of frantic shopping in the streets outside.
