The Ismaili Centre, London was opened on 24 April 1985 by Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in the presence of Mawlana Hazar Imam. They were joined by government ministers, members of Parliament, diplomats and leaders of the Ismaili community from around the world.

The Centre was widely acclaimed by architectural critics for its design and craftsmanship. The architect was Neville Conder of Casson Conder Partnership of London, with traditional elements of the Islamic interior designed by Karl Schlamminger, a German-born Muslim.
