It features the world’s largest fan vault, constructed between 1512 and 1515. It also features The Adoration of the Magi by Rubens, originally painted in 1634 for the convent of the White Nuns at Louvain in Belgium. During the Civil War, the chapel was used as training ground by Oliver Cromwell’s troops. The Graffiti left by these soldiers is still visible on the north and south walls near the altar.
Entrance is £9 for adults and £6 for children but it’s free if you go to a service. Chapel services are held at 5:30pm Mon-Saturday, and 10:30am and 3:30pm on Sunday.
