Tyburn and all London's Martyrs of Christian Disunity
Tyburn Convent is the national shrine to commemorate the Roman Catholic martyrs who lost their lives for their faith in the 16th and 17th centuries. It is situated on Hyde Park Place, a few hundred yards from the junction of Edgware Road and Bayswater Road, which was a principal place of execution for Middlesex, especially of those who had been held at Newgate Prison.

In a generous move, the community of Benedictine nuns who maintain a vigil at the shrine daily invited fellow Christians of all traditions to join with them in recalling the fortitude and life's offering of the Cathoilc martyrs. as they likewise commemorated the Anglicans, Reformers and other Protestants who had died for the sake of their beliefs in Christ during the same troubled period of the Christian Church's in English history.
