See the РУССКАЯ ПРАВОСЛАВНАЯ ЦЕРКОВЬ

The Cathedral of the Dormition of the Most Holy Mother of God and Holy Royal Martyrs in Harvard Road, Chiswick, is London's Russian Orthodox Church, and was completed in 1999.

The history of the Russian Orthodox Church dates from Peter the Great's visit to England in 1698, making it one of the oldest Orthodox parishes in Western Europe. The original church was based at the Russian Embassy, and worship took place at various locations in West London, including a ten year temporary stint at Podvorie All Saints Chapel in Hammersmith, before the church acquired its current location.
