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!

Visited the college as my father studied there in the 1950's. We escorted my mother who had fond memories and although Cambridge has been modernised and is busier, the college apparently has changed little.

this is one of the college in cambridge and you could walk though and go to back yard, really very interested. The building is old but very good maintenance.

As a typically mean Yorkshire resident, I had to firmly bite my lip when paying for entry into Kings College Cambridge.I mean, it seems a little odd having to pay to enter an educational establishment that, although ancient, is still working as a place where students lean out of windows with phones attached to ears. My suggestion however, to anyone... More

The college cathedral is one of the most impressive building, with its famous fascinating ceiling. Worth seeing, even at the cost of 8 pounds.

What can I say? Well worth a visit. It's so dreamy and makes me proud to be British when I see in person, such a wonderful sight.
