The current special project is the creation of the Abbey’s upcoming Queen's Diamond Jubilee Galleries (opening 2018). The Galleries will be located in the Triforium, a medieval level within the Abbey 70 feet up from the nave floor built during reign of Henry III in the 13th century. They will be the first major addition to the Abbey since its towers by Nicholas Hawksmoor were added in 1745.Can you help us?
