To find out about the extraordinary treasures contained within the new museum at Westminster Abbey, listen here. You may be surprised to learn that the museum is located in a part of the church that hasn't been open to the public before.  The space is as impressive as its contents which include the Liber Regalis and funeral effigies of many Kings and Queens buried inside.  To get to the Diamond Jubilee Galleries you have to climb a brand new tower in The Royal Church and when you get up there, the views are spectacular, inside and out.
