Guards Chapel & the Guards Museum, London

The Guards Chapel, the spiritual home of the Guards Regiments in London, is a modern chapel built less than 100 years ago, but world famous for the tragic events which caused it to be rebuilt, when a German bomb destroyed it during a packed service in 1944. The chapel is open and free to all visitors. Next to it is the Guards Museum, which tells the story of the Guards Regiments. Sarah visited this March to learn more.
