Coronation Chair

The Coronation Chair in St George’s Chapel is considered to be one of the most precious pieces of furniture in the world. It has remained the centerpiece of coronations for over 700 years. There have been a total of thirty eight coronation ceremonies for reigning monarchs held at the Abbey. The back part of the Chair has graffiti as a result of Westminster schoolboys and visitors carving their names in the 18th and 19th centuries.

Royal Airforce Chapel

Situated at the eastern end of the Henry VII Lady Chapel, the Royal Airforce Chapel is dedicated to brave men that died in the Battle of Britain in 1940. When bombs rained down, the chapel was damaged and a hole made in the stonework was covered with glass and preserved. The chapel has a stained glass window called the Battle of Britain memorial window with visions on four panels that symbolize Redemption.

Chapter House

The Chapter House is situated in the East Cloister. It was a meeting place where monks gathered with the abbot to ‘hold chapter’: to pray, read from the rule of St Benedict and discuss the day’s business. Construction began in 1246 and was completed in 1255. It is in the shape of an octagon with seating for up to 80 monks. 

Westminster Abbey in Wartime

westminster abbey

After the outbreak of the Second World War in 1939, many of the abbey’s treasures were evacuated for safekeeping, including the Coronation Chair, the 13th-century Retable, tomb effigies, misericords, manuscripts, statues, and also the bronze grille from Henry VII’s tomb. The Pyx Chamber was used for Air Raid Precautions, the college hall and the library were used to keep watch, and the museum in the Undercroft was turned into a dispensary. 

Westminster Abbey also survived bombing raids, the worst one in its history being on the nights of 10th and 11th May 1941. While most fires were put out quickly by volunteers, a menacing fire on the lantern roof burned through the lead and fell into the open area below. This area was mostly used for the enthroning of monarchs during their coronations. Flames shot up to almost 40 feet, but the fire was put out with relative ease because of the spacious open area.
