Magnificent and steeped in history with lots of interesting things to read and look at inside. If you go for a walk around the backs and see the building from a distance it is truly inspiring I would love to be in the Chapel for the Christmas service it must be superb.

Visited last weekend. A truly amazing experience. The highlight of my visit to Cambridge. My children loved it. Spent nearly an hour in there. How a previous reviewer can visit in 15 minutes is beyond me & anybody else that I have spoken to? They obviously don't appreciate architecture. would recommend visiting in the week as the weekends seem busy... More

the Choir was amazing! although I have seen the Chapel living in and around Cambridge, it wasn't until last year I was able to actually get inside, and hear the Choir... amazed by the decor, the stained glass windows, the subtle changes in the brickwork, denoting the history of the Kings who built it, finishing 800 years ago with Henry...

Cambridge is really a beautiful city and Kings Chapel is possibly one of the best attractions. It has a great architecture, and especially with sunshine colors inside are a show on their own. Tale your time for the visit, try to read something about the history before visiting the chapel and ... enjoy it

King's College chapel is one of the outstanding gothic buildings in the world. It was completed 500 years ago this year, and has the largest fan vault in the world, magnificent stained glass windows and Reuben’s painting of the 'Adoration of the Magi' above the altar. It is a chapel, not a church, and belongs to the Provost and Fellows... More
