Lovely buildings but not a lot to see other than the Chapel - see my separate review (5 stars!). You can walk down to the river and definitely worth going in as entrance is free but other colleges have more to explore

Impressive architecture and a well photographed building. Self guided tours cost £9 with no concessions but it does include a visit to the Chapel.

A must-see place in Cambridge. The impressive courtyard and the view of the Chapel will make you think about storyline behind its walls.

We where arround for the day in Cambridge and this was absolutely worth it. The storyline behind it is amazing and the sight itself is breathtaking. Walk arround in its gardens and absorb the whole place. The staff is allright and you wont see them that much arround. Depending on how busy it is. See its people that made this... More

King's Chapel is one of the finest examples of the perpendicular architectural style in England. So beautiful!

Ticket price includes a visit to the Chapel where you will see an exhibition of the history of the College, the world's largest fan vaulted ceiling and the Adoration of the Magi... More

I enquired at the gate of the college about the location of the visitor centre for ticket sales and the member of staff took his time in acknowledging my presence before pointing and saying 'over there' and turning away to chat to a colleague. In the visitor centre I bought my tickets from a largely silent woman who refused to... More

Thank you for your review. We aim to give all our visitors an excellent experience when visiting King's College, but clearly on this occasion we fell short of that.

Walking through King's College on my way to lectures was often the highlight of my day when I was doing my degree, and with a Camcard, available to alumni and Cambridge residents, access to King's College is relatively easy, and free. For tourists, however, there are often strict restrictions on access, and I think there may be a small charge.... More
