The Lord Mayor's Chapel

About

The Lord Mayor's Chapel (St Mark's) is the only municipally-owned church in the country. It originally served the Hospital of the Gaunts, an almonry founded about 1220 by Maurice de Gaunt, a cousin of Thomas, Lord Berkeley.

The hospital was surrendered at the Dissolution of the Monasteries, and in 1541 the Corporation purchased most of the lands that formerly belonged to it. In 1722 the Chapel became the official place of worship of the Mayor and Corporation, and has remained so ever since.

The Lord Mayor's chapel is normally open to the public Wednesday to Sunday 10am - 12pm and 1pm - 4pm. Please note however that currently, due to illness, the chapel will not always be open at these times. Please call the Lord Mayor's office on 0117 903 1450 for more information before planning your visit.
