Savoy Chapel (The Queen's Chapel of The Savoy) :: Shared Description

The Savoy Chapel, or the Queen's Chapel of the Savoy, is a church located just south of the Strand, next to the Savoy Hotel, which is dedicated to St John the Baptist.
Originally founded in the Middle Ages as part of the main church of the Savoy Palace (later the Savoy Hospital), the ancient hospital had fallen into ruin by the 19th century and only the chapel survived the demolition enabling construction of an approach road at the north of Waterloo Bridge.
The chapel remains governed by the Duchy of Lancaster and as such is a royal peculiar, not being under the jurisdiction of a bishop, but under that of the reigning monarch. It is designated as a Grade II* listed building. LinkExternal link
