Part of the Old Royal Naval College, the Chapel of St Peter and St Paul is a beautiful and peaceful place to visit. Still an active place of worship, the Chapel also holds regular lunchtime recitals from the local Trinity Laban students.
In Tudor times, the resident monarchs of the Palace of Placentia would have worshipped at the original Chapel Royal. Archaeological digs have unearthed many artefacts from the site of the old Chapel, now the Queen Anne Car Park. These remains are now on display in the Visitor Centre.
As an avid fan of choral music, the Chapel Royal was regularly frequented by Queen Elizabeth I. The same composers, such as Thomas Tallis and William Byrd, are still sung in the present Chapel today.
