  Tower - The Chapel of St John
by kris-t
 
 

Favorite thing: On the first floor of the White Tower is the Chapel of St John the Evangelist. This exquisite room is original to the building and is one of the most important church interiors of its date in England.
It operated as a chapel throughout the Middle Ages, but from the 16th to the 19th centuries was used for the storage of records of state.

Fondest memory: Services are held here several times a year.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
