See the Chapel Royal at Hampton Court Palace

Published: Thursday 21st of August 2008

Whether you are a religious person or not, it is impossible to not be swayed by the sheer beauty and opulence that is the Chapel Royal at Hampton Court Palace.

The Chapel Royal gives an insight into the rich and colourful decor in Hampton Court Palace during Tudor times.

The ceiling in particular is described as the "grand culmination" of Tudor interiors throughout the palace.

Make this a must see on your list of top London attractions to visit for its dramatic history alone.

In the time of Henry VIII, it was in this chapel that the King was handed a letter by the Archbishop Cranmer in 1540 detailing accusations of unchaste behaviour against his young fifth wife Catherine Howard.

Henry VIII was said to have been madly in love with the young woman and turned against her "viciously" following the revelations and she later met her doom at the hands of an executioner at the Tower of London.

Visitors to Hampton Court Palace can gain entry to the venue using their London Pass.
