Medieval architecture stuns the eyes, with tall spires along the building's roofline. Breathtaking beauty, precision and construction. Started in the mid-1400's by King Henry VI. The grounds and courtyard inside the the building/dormitory walls is gorgeous. An impressive place to visit.

This medieval masterpiece took 70 years to build from 1441 onwards and was founded by Henry VI. This college is a fine example of late English medieval architecture and is a wonder to gaze upon.

Walking through the grounds of King’s is one of the loveliest things to do in Cambridge, and takes you right out of the hustle and bustle of the town centre.
