Westminster Abbey, London

Henry VII (1485-1509) had the Lady Chapel in the east of the Westminster Abbey torn down for his own burial place and the choir made twice as long. Both outside and inside, Henry VII's Chapel is composed entirely of intricate panels with hardly any plain wall area left.

The photo shows the exterior of Henry VII's Lady Chapel.
