    An amazing space
    The info leaflet was invaluable. The carving and the scale of the building is just mind blowing. We spent about an hour in there. The temporary photographic exhibition was very interesting, portraying some of the first women to study at Kings. I thought the portraits were beautifully shot.

    Stunning but pricy
    It’s absolutely stunning but the same old problem with any tourist destination in Cambridge; it’s full of groups of overseas visitors taking endless photos for Instagram and TikTok. It felt quite disrespectful so close to the altar. Maybe they need a couple of staff inside to encourage appropriate behaviour in a sacred space. £14 is steep as it’s hard to spend more than 45 minutes. I noted guide leaflets were available in six foreign languages but none in English!

    Totally stunning.
    Although it seemed expensive for the ticket, I have no regrets spending this, as it was a stunning building crammed with history. As you enter you are in a vast space filled with amazing architectural features, carvings and stained glass windows. The ceilings are very beautiful as they feature fan vaulting, an amazing technical achievement considering the date it was built. There is an exhibition within the chapel which shows in a 3d model how the medieval craftsmen achieved the feature ceiling in what is seemingly an impossible task. Above the altar is “TheAdoration of the Magi” one of Reubens greatest masterpieces.

    One of the architectural wonders of the world
    Totally and truly breathtaking, and one of the finest and most perfect buildings in the world. It's over 20 years since I was last there, and it has lost none of its wondrousness. Yes, the entrance fee is steep. At nearby Ely Cathedral, similar price, but ticket valid for a year, and a free guided tour thrown in. But my major gripe: no public loos. For that money, you'd think there would be public facilities nearby. Without going into too much detail, this is a major issue for some folk!

    Well worth the entrance fee.
    Booked online and we had no problem getting in slightly earlier than our booking. Extensive walk around the chapel and by the river. I loved the fact that you were free to view the chapel but staff on hand to answer any questions. Steeped in history this chapel is so interesting.

    Wonderful addition to any visit to Cambridge.
    Visited on Friday 08th March 2024 as part of a Mini Break to Cambridge. Booked myself on a self-guided Tour of Kings College grounds and Chapel. Booked a time slot in the afternoon but was allowed by the guy at the entrance to come in earlier which was a nice touch as due to circumstances beyond our control we couldn't make the booked slot time. After entering you access the chapel via a path which circumnavigates the grass square common in these older colleges but beautiful nevertheless. Once inside you are treated with free pamphlets in various languages to guide you around the largest chapel in the world and the oldest building within the University. It is visually stunning and particular highlights were the worn entrance step for an anteroom which is currently the site of the cript of John Churchill. The organ had the initials of Henry VIII & Anne Boleyn carved all over it as a gift from Henry VIII to Anne Boleyn and only one remains inside the organist area after he had her beheaded & finally the Adoration of the Magi by Paul Rubens 1616, located here since 1968. When originally sold in the 1950s, most expensive painting in the world at between 250-275k depending on where you read... About 3.3m in today's money

    Stunning and mostly worth the money
    There's a bit of me that says paying to visit a house of worship is not a good thing however I recognise that this is on private land so just go with it. Interestingly, the guard at the first gate kept telling people to go back to the tourist office to buy tickets when it was easy to buy them with the QR code on the big sign in front of him -don't know if he was a technophobe or something? Or just sick of explaining to people who couldn't manage the QR code? Anyway, the QR code was easy so just bought the ticket then and there and went in and all was beautiful, it really is quite majestic, then spent some time afterwards walking around the bits that were open to the public and looking at the punters, it was really bad weather so surprised that there were still a few out!
