Hopefully some music will be offering when you visit because the chapel had great acoustics, almost no echo. I found the collage-like windows in some of the side rooms very curious and interesting. Watch out for the window showing the circumcision of Jesus, where the rabbi is wearing something very anachronistic!

The details in the roof and in the glass windows are amazing. The wooden structure that separates the chapel is great piece of art.

We timed our arrival in Cambridge so that we could attend the Sunday evensong. We were seated next to the choir so could watch the boys and their total concentration. Wonderful acoustics accentuated the uplifting singing. Good for the soul!

If you are lucky and visit the chapel during rehearsal of one of local choirs, then you feel back again in the middle ages. Goosebumps. Carvings on the chairs are impressive as well.

The chapel is absolutely beautiful. I would definitely recommend this as one of the staples on your trip. I would go back the next time we are in town.

If you get the chance to visit the chapel do so, it is a beautiful building with an interesting history. If you get the chance to hear music in the chapel, it is an experience you will never forget. The organ is particularly splendid and the choir is amazing

I had always wanted to visit the Chapel, after seeing it on TV at Christmas. It cost £6.00 entry, and that concession rate, which I think is expensive. We were unable to enter the grounds of Kings College as Exams were taking place, well that's understandable. It a bit of a performance buying entry tickets, as you don't get them... More
