The Chapel is the most popular tourist attraction in Cambridge, and you are able to go in and experience its inner beauty, as well as its outer beauty. It's an architectural masterpiece.

Didn't last particularly long because it was freezing and there were students running up and down kings parade so it was kind of hard to do. Luckily got the job done and went on our way. Oh and the chapel is nice too

Ours son Sam sang with the Kings voices on Monday night evensong. Magical place even with the organ being repaired. Acoustics are outstanding.

We attended evensong and the famous choir transported us to higher levels. Beautiful acoustics. Extraordinary ceiling. The highlight of the interior is the Adoration painted by Rubens. The red of the mantle can be spotted from the entrance. This chapel is under restoration. Give lavishly. the chapel will return it manifold.

I brought tickets from the tourist information, for all of the pay to do tourist attractions, I strongly recommend this, also, It helps to go to the tourist information centre just to make sure that the Chapel is open to the public on the day you would like to visit

This Chapel used by Cambridge as a logo time and time again is a must place to visit. The space, the height, the fan vaulted ceiling, the Adoration of the Majai by Rubens is stunning. If you visit for evensong, free to worshipers the sounds, atmosphere, light through the windows is stunning, an amazing experience.

Even better than we'd anticipated, the chapel appears to be open to visitors most of the time with the Kings College grounds open to visitors only at certain times. During term time visitors can attend Evensong services.

It's a really beautiful place to visit and if you're in Cambridge it really is a 'must see'. It's most beautiful in the middle of the summer when you can watch all the people on punts sail past and take a walk around the stunning grounds.
