Visiting the Chapel Royal

The Chapel Royal is a living, vibrant church with heavenly music, located at the heart of the historic palace. Everyone is welcome to attend the sung religious services at the Chapel Royal or to visit the place where Kings and Queens have worshipped for centuries.

The Chapel is located on the ground floor and has level access so should not present problems for visitors with mobility difficulties. Wheelchair hire is available

If you are concerned about accessing the Chapel then don’t hesitate to let us know that you will be coming, and we can help you make necessary arrangements.

The Chapel will usually be open from Wednesday-Saturday between 10am and 4:30pm. Please be aware that this occasionally may be subject to change at late notice.
