A bit expensive, but apart from that it's a good place to visit, unique buildings with lots of photo opportunities.

A fascinating place, seen so often on Christmas TV. Visited as part of a walking tour, which is also highly recommended.

The best college with an impressive history. The walk on the grounds has an Inspiring impact. Give yourself a decent amount of time if you like buildings, architecture and a bit of history.

The chapel is the thing to see at Kings. One of the finest examples of Gothic chapels in Britain. Well worth it!

This is a magical building filled with some incredible history. It was busy but not so much so that we could not enjoy it. We did not have an official tour but used the guide book which was very informative. Well worth a visit.

We had time to visit just one, and we chose this one since the chappel is the most famous one. Tour didn't take too long, was very interesting, and we felt like we were on the setting of a movie, expecting Harry Potter to show up in front of us any moment :)

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.

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
