Next to Kings College Chapel, the chapel here not as spectacular, but still very pretty and there was a young man playing the piano, which was beautiful. The gardens here though are the standout. Simply beautiful. And lovely views of the river. Well worth the small admission fee for gardens alone

Gardens are as beautiful as ever, what a historic place this is - scholarship oozes from every stone.

I just spent a week at a conference sponsored by Clare College. We were well taken care of and I did not have the pay the charge to tour. The buildings and gardens are fabulous. Recent additions of sculpture are worth the time to see.

only £3 to get in. i know not kings but £7.50 just to get to see a cathedral was too much. better off seeing the smaller less visited colleges like clare. the gardens are great to just walk around. some great artwork from the likes of barbara hepworth.

Very nice buildings and grounds, peaceful/beautiful on a summers day....ruined by the high volume of snobby upper class people
