An amazing structure with a grand history

This place is well-known, and deserves a visit. Lots of history to explore. We missed any music, which must a joy to hear.

We were lucky enough to be able to have the opportunity to have use of this wonderful venue. A definite feeling of history all around and the punting on the river with champagne just added to the day. Fabulous setting for my cousin's wedding. Wonderful day x

On the scale of a cathedral, well worth a visit. Not cheap, so take your time, visit the chapels and the exhibition about the construction. Don't forget to engage with the staff/helpers, they have many bits of information that you won't find in a guide book. There is also the chance to wander the grounds including the bridge over the...

No trip to Cambridge would be complete without visiting Kings College Chapel. Firstly, car parking is best if you use the Park and Ride. Trumpington is best for Kings and if you ask the driver and they will stop at the Fitzwilliam Museum and direct to Kings. It is not too difficult! To gain entry, it is best to visit... More

"What did you see in Cambridge?" "The Chapel at King's, obviously." Of course you did. It's a must-see location, and they therefore get away with charging a full £8 admission, making thIs comfortably the most expensive admission fee of any Cambridge College, most of whom sit in the £2-3 range (despite Trinity also having a beautiful chapel, and the Wren...

This place was amazing, inside and outside. Just beautiful. Well worth a walk through the Chapel and then to walk around the grounds down by the river is just simply gorgeous.

Kings College is well worth a visit. It's an amazing building with an amazing history, including all the glass from22 stained glass windows being removed during World War Two and replaced with some interesting mistakes.

Be prepared to be overawed by this wonderful College Chapel. It is truly gob-smacking in majestic features. The vaulted ceiling alone is simply mesmerising, as are the superb windows. There is a very informative history presented in a series of panels and detailing signifact events relating to the chapel and its construction.
