London is more religious than the rest of the country. This research project seeks to map and analyse this phenomenon. (2020)
London is often perceived to be different from the rest of the UK – more liberal and more secular. However, Londoners are not just more likely to belong to a particular religion, but to actively participate by, for instance, attending services on a regular basis. London’s religious micro–climate is paradoxical: a secular, liberal and cosmopolitan city in which religion is becoming more visible and significant.
The research found that London is more religious than the rest of Britain (62% identify as religious compared to 53% across the rest of Britain ex. London).
