St George Hanover Square is an Anglican church in what now the City of Westminster, built in the early 18th century. The church was designed by John James and was constructed under a project to build 50 new churches around London (the Queen Anne Churches). It is situated on Hanover Square, near Oxford Circus. Due to its location it has been a frequent venue of high society weddings.
St George's was also the name of its parish, which covered Mayfair, Belgravia, and Pimlico.
