Very interesting exhibition and historical site

Not unreasonably expensive at 17.50 for adults when you think of the value of walking around a building that was built in the 1400's and has 600+ years of history. You get to walk... read more

Not unreasonably expensive at 17.50 for adults when you think of the value of walking around a building that was built in the 1400's and has 600+ years of history. You get to walk over the same fall stones that thousands of people have done over hundreds of years. As you walk through the exhibit and the building you can... More

A must visit if in Cambridge. Beautiful grounds to enjoy although some restrictions prevent you from walking alongside the Cam when in the grounds.

The chapel is rightly famous. Enjoy the choir for free - check up on line for services. The proper choir sings in term time - there are often visiting choirs at other times.

The grounds are gorgeous, the chapel is also beautiful. If you are there in the evening, make sure to attend Evensong, every evening at 5:30p.m. It's a beautiful, liturgical service. The choir from King's college as well as other groups regularly sing during the service. It's a wonderful way to experience the atmosphere and history of the place.

A must to see while in Cambridge, however considering you only go inside to have a look and a quick wonder around, it works out expensive for a family of four.

Chapel is not to be missed, but religion is alive, I was there and I saw a religious pilgrim in a white robe confessing his sins etc. It was like those pilgrims in the days of old.

Worth the visit but was hard for us to access to see it, had to pretend to be one of them and just walk in.
