  • Historic church of Victorian order with Prayer book window and Wycliffe window. Good guidance.
  • 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...

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
