This view of the interior of Henry VII's Chapel in Westminster Abbey shows it off in its full glory. It is being used for a ceremony of installation of Knights of the Order of Bath. It is hung with colourful heraldic flags, full of spectators and light streaming in from the huge windows illuminates the delicate carvings on the walls and the fan vaulted ceiling. The Order of Bath was established by George I in 1725, and the Henry VII's Chapel was designated as its home. Many members of the Royal Family were buried in the chapel.
