As part of our visit to Cambridge we took and organised tour through the colleges. It was well worth it. The highlight was definitely Kin's College Chapel. Later in the afternoon we took the opportunity to attend evensong at the chapel and it was simply amazing. To experience the singing from the choir in such a setting was spellbinding! Note... More

Brilliant architecture and atmosphere. An icon not to be missed, as are many of the buildings in Cambridge, especially the Colleges.

We attended a service one evening at King's College Chapel when we were in Cambridge (May 2014), and it was both beautiful and interesting. People attending the service were appropriately respectful and quiet, and most of us attending were tourists. Highly recommended if you are interested in seeing high church ceremony in action, the chapel's interior architecture, and especially to... More

An awesome medieval building with 26 amazing stained glass windows, a priceless Rueben painting and a most interesting history.

This is a very beautiful building with a small and interesting exhibition attached. It is about worth the entrance fee (£7.50 for adults), but be aware that in June it is literally only the chapel and a brief view of the outside of the college you will get - no access to the backs or anywhere else. Having said this... More
