St Peter Ad Vincula

Light Perceptions have been appointed to design a new lighting scheme for The Chapel Royal of St Peter Ad Vincula at the Tower of London.

Originally a parish church, the Chapel was incorporated into the walls of the castle during

Henry III’s expansion. It has been rebuilt at least twice, once in the reign of Edward I, and then again in its present form in Henry VIII’s reign. Three queens of England Anne Boleyn, Catherine Howard and Jane Grey, and two saints of the Roman Catholic Church, Sir Thomas More and John Fischer, are buried here. Their headless bodies were buried under the nave or chancel without memorial until the 19th century when remains found in the nave were re-interred in the crypt.
