This beautiful church on the southern bank of the Thames was designed by the eminent architect Charles Parker in an Italianate style, with early Christian and Renaissance influences. The entire cost was met by Alexander Raphael, a Catholic Armenian whose family came from India. He became the first Roman Catholic to be elected Sheriff of London after the passing of the Catholic Emancipation Act in 1829. Raphael built the Church in 1846 as a family chapel and named it St Rafael.

With its position on the river bank it may be a wonderful day out in beautiful Kingston upon Thames.
