Don't miss the opportunity to see the most iconic of Cambridge University's chapels

Incredible buildings with incredible history. If you can fit it in book a tour of the college and chapel.

This is the attraction number one in Cambridge and it's clear why. Such a magnificent architecture and such an amazing location. In order to be efficient , make sure to buy tickets in a small shop in front of the college, it will save you some time.

A very nice place for those interested to see historical buildings. Accomodation during summer holidays available at this old building. Very clean and attractive environment and nice breakfast offered.

Most expensive of all the colleges to visit. Besides the chapel, there is little to see except the grounds of the college. Found other colleges cheaper (some free) and just as interesting particularly Magdalene and Emmanuel.

I’ve had the pleasure of visiting all the colleges in Cambridge as I have lived in Cambridge for many years. Amongst them all, my favourite is Kings College on Kings Parade as it is perhaps the largest and the most beautiful of them all. The history of the college is fascinating. I make it a point to visit the place... More

The magnanimous King's College and chappel epitomises Cambridge and it's history. A walk in the King's parade and a visit to King's and its Chappel is a must do, for anyone visiting Cambridge.

Because I have a son at King's College, it has a special place in my heart. That also means we get to enjoy breakfast in the dining hall and visit areas of the college most visitors miss. Even just from the outside, though, it's iconic and worth a look.
