Went to the carol service and was whisked back to to my childhood and Christmas as it was then....no commercial expectations but happy family times with a great dinner. The choir were beyond words, so so beautiful. I half expected to see the Magi when I left.

The property of King's College is a must visit while touring Cambridge University. The grounds are beautiful and steeped in history. We went with a guide, who brought the whole things to life - and so glad we did (pre-arranged this through the tourist information centre before we arrived). David was amazing and helped us to love King's College as... More

THE college to visit because it is stunning and the admission includs the famous Kings Chapel. So much history and beauty in one place so if you only visit one college make sure it is this one.

You cant believe how old it is, the architecture is wonderful and you can feel the history, guides are really good, but just taking in the atmosphere is enough

Strange place as the colleges seem to own parts of the river, its very confusing if you need to pay or not to wander around. We looked through arch into Clare college and decided we would like to walk though to the river, weirdly we asked a guy on the door and he said as it was before 10am we... More

Between the historical significance, the architecture and the famed King's College Chapel, this is one of the colleges that should be top of your list on a visit to Cambridge. So peaceful and beautiful, and completely steeped with history (Tudors, anyone!?). Take the time to go in and see it all.

Who could visit Vambridge without visiting Kings, especially the chapel. We were lucky enough to visit just as The King's Men á capella group began their rehearsal. It was fantastic. We went back later for evensong was great but don't leave it too late to queue up and remember it' sa 45 minute church service not just a choral performance.

Have visited many chapels around the world, King's an outstanding chapel oozing atmosphere. Very under rated, especially among the students, until you visit!
