The chapel in the hear of Cambridge is a symbol of what this place is about, history, culture, architecture, and amazing music! The best time to visit is at Evensong - the entrance is free and experience is amazing.

My brother and I visited Cambridge for the weekend. The place is delightful and the people very helpful and friendly but the buildings and architecture are something so special. Unfortunately, owing to examinations taking place we were unable to visit the university buildings and grounds, but we did go inside Kings College Chapel. It was stunning! The history of this...

Not cheap to get in, but that keeps out the unappreciatvie crowds. This is a beautiful Church with an amazing history. Fortunately the museum exhibition in the side chapel explains it in great detail. Dont miss this it will make your visit much more interesting.

This church is very large, but the acoustics in the church are phenomenal. The sounds of the choir singing travels down the entire sanctuary, and echos so many times that there is a natural polyphony taking place with the acoustics of the room. The stained glass windows are each works of art, and depict stories from the bible. There is... More

Such a beautiful and iconic place to visit. Amazing. Loved the freedom to walk about inside and explore and the leaflet guide. A shame that the grounds were closed but ofcourse understandable due to exams of students. Great history provided on the chapel, including information on monarchs and the building process.

Beautiful building with stunning carvings and colourful windows. At £8 to visit it might not seem value for money to some but if you love architectural buildings and are not on a tight budget you will not be disappointed.
