Queen's Diamond Jubilee Galleries in Westminster Abbey, London
A new museum and gallery is being built in Westminster Abbey’s medieval triforium (the arcaded storey above the nave). The triforium has been hidden from the public for over 700 years. It was originally built by Henry III around 1250-60, and offers spectacular views into the church and out towards the Palace of Westminster and Parliament Square. The project will preserve the contemplative atmosphere of the space whilst displaying treasures such as the Liber Regalis, a 14th-century illuminated manuscript setting out the order for Coronations, and the Westminster Retable, England’s oldest altarpiece.
