“Breathtaking!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

We have all seen this numerous times on TV and sung along with their superlative carol services,but the reality is totally breathtaking,especially when viewed,silhouetted against a brilliant blue sky.

“Wow just wow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013 via mobile

We really enjoyed visiting here. You do have to pay to go in £14 for two adults. It is worth it. We stayed almost two hours here. It's so calm and relaxing. So much to see and so much history. I loved the carved screen which had Henry VIII initials HR carved into it. They have a good display on the side which tells the history of the chapel and how they carved that magnificent ceiling. Worth it.

“Essential to see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Most in the UK know the Chapel from the carol service at Christmas shown every year on tv.
The vaulted ceiling and Tudor stained glass are unique.
Also enjoyed the civil war graffiti and the Tudor wood carving.

“Do not miss this chapel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

The chapel is bigger than most cathedrals. Amazing! Check carefully opening times as it changes a lot and you do not want to miss it.

“Worth the trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

This is a beautiful place. I went for Sunday Evensong and enjoyed it. A plus about this approach is that you do not have to paythe normal admission fee. Lovely singing, too!
