Attending evensong at King's is always the highlight of my trips to Cambridge. Evensong on Monday evening with the Kings' Singers was just divine.
What an amazing building. It was so interesting and the stain glass windows were second to none. An interesting exhibition tells the story very well. Well worth a visit, also take a wander outside in the gardens and admire the building from outside.
A unique building, and quite remarkable space. The vaulting is one of the finest examples of fan tracery of the period. The varied level of decoration shows the influence of the different monarchs who contributed to its construction, concluding with Henry VIII.
Although admission is quite steep at £7 this is such a beautiful and historic building that its worth every penny. The guide is very comprehensive and there is an exhibition in side chapels, I think its permanent, that adds greatly to your understanding of the construction of the chapel and puts in in a historic context. My only regret is... More
King's College Chapel is the heart and soul of Cambridge, and the one place you absolutely must visit in the city. The building is stunningly beautiful and the choral performances are breath-taking. If you are in Cambridge during the University term then it may not be open to visitors but you can attend Evensong. Which I think is 5.30pm Monday... More

The huge ancient chapel is well built to carry sound well, and combined with the wonderful ambience of ye olde decor, with sunlight streaming through the many mosaic windows, can be a glorious musical event. Have fun. Its well... More
This iconic building is a Cambridge must-see, and well worth the entrance fee (if visiting other than at a service time, when entry is free). The exhibition in the side chapel is fascinating, but probably best lingered over without young children in tow. Particularly intriguing is a model of the roof structure - the famous fan-vaulted ceiling hangs well below... More
If you visit only one building in Cambridge, make it this one. It is breathtaking. If you want to be brave, lie on the floor and lose yourself in the ceiling!
Beautiful architecture inside and full of history. Very expensive though so try to get a Univeraity student to take you in. They can take up to 2 people at a time. Make sure to check the museum part of it to see how it was built. Also take some time to stroll around the kings ground, down to the river.
Wonderful historic building if visiting Cambridge this is a must see. Having heard the Christmas carols broadcast over the past few years it was lovely to visit the home of the Kings College Choir!
