Very expensive entrance fee

this was worth a visit but if you wanted to visit a number of colleges you would have a very expensive visit.

We had prosecco on the lawn between Gibbs Building and the river, see pic, signs say Keep Off The Grass. Living on the edge!! :-) Stunning setting looking at the Chapel in glorious weather. Function was catered for really... More

Very impressive beautiful place backs on to the river. Not all areas are open to the public and you need to enter through the chapel so have to pay but worth it

I stayed at Kings College with a group to learn about Bloomsbury in Cambridge (we were all Friends of Charleston). The ensuite rooms were simple and clean, and overlooking one of the courtyards. We dined in The Saltmarsh Rooms, surrounded by paintings by Duncan Grant, Roger Fry etc, which was very special. We saw the Modern Archives - a real... More

it shouldn't be a surprise that Kings College Chapel in within the grounds of this college, but it's amazing how many people think the college and the chapel are one and the same.

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.
