Henry VII Lady Chapel

One of the great sites to see in London – Don’t miss seeing this fantastic chapel when visiting Westminster Abbey.

The Henry VII Lady Chapel is a large chapel at the eastern end of Westminster Abbey, paid for by  Henry VII (£14,000 in the very early 1500’s).

The structure of the chapel is a three-aisled nave made up of four corners. The heart of the chapel contains the altar, and behind that, the tombs of Henry VII and his wife Elizabeth of York as well as James 1st.

The chapel has a famous pendant fan vault ceiling which is quite stunning.

The Chapel has also been the home of the Order of the Bath since 1725.
