Attended Saturday evening evensong choral service and organ recital afterwards. Start queueing about 4.45pm to get good seats close to choir. Architecture is world famous; fan roof takes your breath away. Wrap up warm. Only open during 8 week term times.

Beautiful chapel, even better at dusk with Evensong service. Peaceful, beautiful acoustics, outstanding choir. Set a great tone for Remembrance weekend.

Really worth visiting and if time permits, stay for evensong and service. The voices and choir are uplifting and good for your soul

It just happened that the choir were rehearsing on the Tuesday evening, our first day there. Very popular and rightly so.

We just managed to catch the one hour slot they were open on the particular Sunday we went. We thought it was a little bit pricey (£7.50 each) but having the second largest vaulted ceiling in the world we could understand why. Plus I received a student discount so I only paid £5 in the end which was fine. The... More

We have been to evensong on a number of occasions, but this time we attended the Sunday morning communion service at 10:30 am. The building and the choir are both, of course, truly magnificent but the service itself was also moving and thought provoking. The morning service also seemed much less crowded than evensong so recommended for those who don't... More

We attended evensong. It was an incredible experience and I defy anyone to not be moved by the atmosphere and sense of history. I am very grateful that the Tourist Information lady mentioned this to us. An uplifting experience.

Definately need to go here if your in Cambridge. Ticket were pricey. However definitely worth it seeing the historical monuments of Cambridge. Although I recommend the fizWilliam museum is brilliant place as well as I think it is free occasionally to get in.

I am not usually a fan of churches but this one was gorgeous and so much history. the only issue I had was the very loud organ that was playing. it was hard to hear anything. we visited here with a guide and the cost to enter was covered in our tour price. our guide was great but just taking...
