Lady Chapel (Capela Henry VII) a fost realizată între 1503-1519 şi adăposteşte unul dintre ordinele cavalerilor britanici, Ordinul de Bath. Stranele cavalerilor sunt marcate de o plăcuţă şi de un stindard. În navele laterale ale capelei se află mormintele reginelor: Elisabeta I (1533-1603) Maria “Bloody Mary” (1516-1558) Maria Stuart (1542-1587) The Lady Chapel was begun in 1503 and constructed at the expense of Henry VII. It is the last great masterpiece of English medieval architecture. In 1545 John Leland called it "the wonder of the entire world". In 1725 the chapel was first used for installations of Knights of the Order of the Bath and the heraldic banners of living knights hang above the oak stalls.
