Where is this, Chris?
Chris: Surrey Lisl, a private chapel
I was going to ask the same as Lisl. Where is this?
Chris: I cannot remember the exact location but we had just visited an art gallery up the road..

Gottit - Compton, near Guildford
I was going to ask the same as Bill and Lisl Tiff.
Chris: I refer you to the answer I gave a few moments ago
The look of awe - and I can understand why.
Chris: It is a hugely decorative place

She could be snoring, but I am sure you would have told us.

Since the decorations didn't look like your standard church stuff, I looked the place up. It is the Watts Cemetery Chapel:

Designed and built by Mary Watts, wife of the eminent Victorian artist G.F. Watts, the Grade I listed Chapel is a unique fusion of art nouveau, Celtic, Romanesque and Egyptian influence with Mary's own original style. It is impossible not to admire the work and inspiration that lies behind this beautiful little building.
Chris: You are dead right in everything you say Louis
I very much like this, I'm assuming she is gazing in awe at the wonderful ceiling in one of our spectacular old buildings.
Chris: Yes indeed Brian

Is she asleep? Or perhaps staring at the ceiling in awe? Where is this place, please?
Chris: The Watts Cemetery Chapel near Guildford in Surrey
Amazing place!
Chris: Very much so, a rich person's extravagance Tom

Ah the Watts chapel near Guildford ....
Chris: Clearly you know it and haven't cribbed from others' responses
