We went especially for the Christmas concert. We had to queue from 8:00 in the morning, to secure tickets for the concert, which started at 14:00.

As with many of the colleges here, a great place to visit. You can purchase CD’s of music, and also see how the buildings have evolved over the centuries.

I know the ticket can seem expensive, but the minute you walk into the chapel, you know it was money will spent. I've taken every visitor I've had here and every one of them has been in... More

One of the biggest one in Cambridge, This is the tipical image you can see from Cambridge, because it is in the centre and so close to the river. I advice you go to hear the choir because the sound inside the chapel is amazing, some days per week is free.

My wife and I had a champagne reception and a formal lunch here at a Masonic Festival. Stunning location, looking onto the backs, magnificent rooms, great service, incredibly imaginative food for several hundreds, and of course the Kings College Chapel - unforgettable!
