St. Christopher's Chapel in the Great Ormond Street Hospital

Great Ormond Street Hospital is a children's hospital that famously received the rights to J.M. Barrie's play Peter Pan in 1929. Its chapel was designed by E.M. Barry and built 1871-76. It was moved to its present location in 1992 and reopened in 1994 by Diana, Princess of Wales.

The mosaic floor in the entrance is by Salviati and is said to be modeled after that of St. Mark's in Venice.
