You are in: Visits --> London --> Westminster Cathedral

The Chapel of St Gregory and St Augustine is the nearest to the Baptistery and the mosaic work was completed soon after the cathedral was opened in 1903. It contains a mixture of classical Byzantine-style mosaics and Victorian-style opus sectile (as in the lower part of the picture at the foot of this page). There are details of the opus sectile panels on the next page.
