Dorothy died 1604, aged 78. Her memorial shows her dressed in black with the figures of her three sons and three daughters kneeling below. Find out more about St Margaret’s royal links when you visit. The church is open daily, free of charge.

Among the less well-known figures buried in St Margaret’s Church is Lady Dorothy Stafford, Mistress of the Robes to Elizabeth I. She was an influential figure in Elizabeth's court and served the queen for 40 years.

This "biting beast" fragment of medieval glass was found under the floorboards of our triforium. It's now on display in our new Queen's Diamond Jubilee Galleries. More about the Galleries ➡️

The arms of Margaret Beaufort, Countess of Richmond, inc. two yales can be seen in our Chapter House window. A yale is a mythical four-legged creature with the tusks and horns, and an heraldic beast used by the Royal Family.
