Although we didn't go inside King's College, we walked around it and felt impressed by the history, atmosphere & beautiful design of the old building.

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 :)
