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. On the main HRP website, you can read more details on accessibility at Hampton Court Palace.

If you are concerned about accessing the Chapel then please let us know that you will be coming, and we can help you make necessary arrangements.

The Chapel will usually be open to visit from Wednesday-Saturday between 10am and 4pm. Please be aware that this occasionally may be subject to change at late notice. Please check our website before your visit for confirmed timings.

The Chapel closes for services on Sundays and on certain other feast days. 

Weekday lunchtime services are held at 12.30pm each Thursday, Friday and Saturday, unless specified otherwise on our music list.
