The Lady Chapel consists of a nave and two aisles. It was built by King Henry the Seventh between 1503 and 1519. It is the home of the Order of the Bath, one of Britain's orders of chivalry.
Two of my favourite Monarchs are buried here among others. As I have read so much of both of these women, I was thrilled to be in the very room where they had been laid to rest.
Queen Elizabeth the First (1533-1603)
Mary Queen of Scots (1542-1587)
Elizabeth's half-sister, Mary I, is also entombed within. Mary Queen of Scots has an elaborate tomb in the south aisle erected by her son James I (who was himself buried beside Henry VII). So many Kings and Queens all together - it's a history buff's dream come true!
