Feel totally immersed as you step inside the cathedral, enveloped in scenes of iconic monarchs, breathtaking coronation ceremonies and the Crown Jewels. Discover the unique royal historical events that took place at the cathedral.

Historic Royal Palaces have partnered with Luxmuralis Artist Collaboration to create an immersive sound and light show for all ages to enjoy. It will bring the spectacle, significance and shared experience of Coronations to life, demonstrating the pivotal role of the Crown Jewels, part of the Royal Collection, within the ceremony. The show will feature stunning imagery, in exquisite detail, spanning across the centuries.

Visitors will journey through more than 1000 years of history, encompassing the reigns of some of the most famous English monarchs including William the Conqueror, Elizabeth I, and Queen Victoria. Just like medieval and Tudor rulers, visitors will be swept up in the spectacle of the coronation procession.
