The builiding itself is amazing but there are also some excellent displays on the history of the period when it was built, the kings and bishops of the period and the construction of the building. Beautiful grounds to stroll around on a fine day - don't step on the grass!!

A beautiful old chapel both inside and out. Useful visitor explanatory exhibition room. A bit pricey for what it offers at £8 per person.

You do have to pay to visit the chapel, but we stayed a long time listening to the organ playing and taking in the awe inspiring stained glass windows - a must for every visitor to Cambridge.

A classic spot to see in Cambridge, even better whilst on a guided tour! You can join one at the Cambridge Information Center in the middle of the city for a very reasonable price and can even book ahead.

This magnificent building is the iconic picture of Cambridge and it doesn't disappoint. The ceiling is wonderful as is the huge painting behind the altar.

A very historic building with wonderful stain glass windows all round the Chapel. This is one of the best places in the world for choral and organ music and the organ goes back many years with some of the pipework being over 300 years old. A fabulous building to visit and soak up the atmosphere.

A fabulous building with a ceiling that is amazing in both its detail and length. The stained glass windows are beautiful and the stone carvings throughout are impressive.

We visited the King's College Chapel as part of a walking tour. There is an admission fee to visit but it is definitely worth the money. Amazing building!
