Westminster Abbey is embarking on an exciting new project to build a new museum and gallery: The Queen's Diamond Jubilee Galleries, in the Abbey's medieval triforium.
The gallery runs 70 ft above the Abbey floor, and has been hidden to the public for over 700 years. The new galleries will give visitors magnificent views to the Palace of Westminster and into the church, displaying treasures and collections reflecting the Abbey's rich and varied thousand-year history.
Due to open in 2018
Take a look at our gallery as the project develops over the next three years.
A team is conserving the clothing used to dress Mary II's funeral effigy, which will go on display in the new galleries.
