The Queen's Chapel is my favorite place in London - it offers an incredible walk through history, with beautiful stained glass windows and armorial plates. If you're very lucky, you may get a walk through the robing room; the steward and staff are wonderfully friendly and excited to share the Chapel's history. It's a bit off the beaten tourist path, and feels intimate and special - I've never visited when anyone else was there. Read up a bit on its history - noteworthy moments include the fourteenth century Peasants' Revolt and Dickens' novels, written in the area of the Chapel, and a significant fire in the nineteenth century - and don't miss the chance to see a beautiful building demonstrating the living nature of London's history. Be advised, the Chapel is closed throughout August and September 2013 for refurbishments to the floor, to bring it to match the glory of the refurbished ceiling.
An absolutely fascinating remnant of royal privilege - this chapel is the most peculiar of the 'peculiar's - religious buildings that fall directly under the control of the Queen rather than the parish and diocese system of the Church of England. The Queen's Chapel Of The Savoy is full of royal memorabilia - you might even get the opportunity to poke your nose into the robing room, which is full of furniture from Buckingham Palace...
Not too much building left from Tudor Henry seven
