Please arrive in good time and wait by Henry VIII Gate, which is the usual tourist exit point from the Castle, and the police there will let you through once the Chapel is open to worshippers.  From Friday 10 December the wearing of face masks in places of worship is mandatory (unless exempt).  Please also note that it is advisable to wear a warm layer of clothing as the Chapel doors and/or windows will be left open to aid ventilation.
