St George's, Hanover Square, is an Anglican church in central London and the Parish Church of Mayfair.

It was built in the early eighteenth century from 1721-1724 to the designs of John James.

The land on which the church stands was donated by General William Stuart, who laid the first stone in 1721.

The church, designed by John James and was constructed under a project to build fifty new churches around London (the Queen Anne Churches, under Queen Anne's Act of 1711).

It is situated in Hanover Square, near Oxford Circus, in what is now the City of Westminster.

Owing to its Mayfair location, it has frequently been the venue for high society weddings.
