Absolutely love this architecture. The front of the chapel is my favourite place to sit and eat lunch and watch the world go by when I'm on a lunch break.

Absolutely wonderful, and a must see when you visit Cambridge. The fan vaulted ceiling is like no other, and the history evidenced in the stonework and carvings is fascinating

We attended a Graduation then visited Kings College Chapel, one of many splendid buildings. The surrounding small independent shops and Christmas market were interesting and good value

So many wonderful features in this chapel! The many stain glass windows create such a feeling of peace. Be ready to pay for this site and most others in Cambridge.
