*Please note that for certain major services, in particular the Christmas Carol Service, admission is by ticket issued in advance and/or by named lists, so anyone arriving without a ticket or whose name is not on a list for one of these popular services may be refused admission. The Chapel of St Peter ad Vincula seats only 180 - far fewer than many parish churches - and there is simply not room for as many as would like to attend some services.  Please check, at the latest by the preceding Friday, with the Chapel Admininistrator to avoid disappointment.  Thank you for your understanding.
