A must see in Cambridge - a little pricey £20 - Very busy on a sat in september so not a soulful experience. 2 adults and a child but worth it.

The Chapel is immaculately kept as you would imagine - Fantastic building - beautiful chapel and a tombstone set in the floor of the ante-chamber bearing the name of a man with the same name as my the wife's maiden name - Relative - Who knows.

What a fabulous building which is a must see, probably one of the top 5 buildings to visit in the UK. It is a real eye-opener for the class divide argument that exists between the elitist Oxbridge and other higher educational establishments.

It is the standout building in Cambridge. The view from river side is amazing. You have to pay to go inside.

This is a major landmark in the Cambridge area. Building started in about 1450 and it contains some of the finest stained glass to be seen.

Amazing architecture and history. The ceiling is just stunning! The information about the history of the chapel and its construction is presented clearly and concisely. A bit costly to visit, but well worth doing.

As a local, I cycle past King's everyday and think nothing of it. However, I frequently have visitors from abroad come and stay in Cambridge and King's College Chapel is always top on their to-do list!
