The chapel is a wonderful building, but as stated by others the cost of an adult ticket at £8 each is a little over the top, particularly at busier times when the atmosphere and ambience are spoilt a little by large groups which can be noisy. If you plan on going, go early for the best visitor experience.

Well worth the entrance money, architecture is amazing . The detailed carvings on the organ is also amazing. A complete sense of tranquillity when you stroll around this chapel. A sense of history is also very present.

Great weather and it was lovely to tour around the campus. The Chapel was breathtaking! My boys loved seeing all of the famous people that are remembered there.

I have to give this a 3 star review mainly because of the cost. The UK tax payers pay into the maintenance of this marvel, students from Cambridge gets in for free. But honestly, as a place of worship there should not be any charge. Of course remember that all chapel services are indeed free.

Always wanted to see Kings College and it did not disappoint .It was annoying to have to go round the back to find the way in. It was bitterly cold and it took a while to find the entrance . Bit annoyed at the fees to enter £5.50 for a pensioner over 65 and £9 for an adult . I... More

We attended Choral evensong in Kings College Chapel, it was magnificent. The choir was a wonder to listen to and you could not help but be moved.

We queued up from 7 am on Christmas Eve to get seats for the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols. I can't think of a better way to spend Christmas Eve, socializing with the others waiting in line, grabbing a cup of hot soup from the café, and then being let into the Chapel at 1.30 for the 3 pm...
