The Tower of London is one of the ten most popular tourist attractions in the UK. The Chapel of St Peter Ad Vincula sits at its historic heart and is one of only a few churches that are classed as a “Royal Peculiar”– meaning that it is under the direct jurisdiction of Her Majesty the Queen.

As part of an extensive restoration The Chapel was relit in 2014 with a set of magnificent new chandeliers designed by Light Perceptions and built by Dernier & Hamlyn.

Light Perceptions worked closely with the Surveyors at Historic Royal Palaces and Carden & Godfrey, Architects, to re-design the interior lighting of the whole Chapel, Choir Rooms and the Crypt containing the Tomb of Sir Thomas More.
