I live in Cambridge and I have been dozens of time to visit the chapel and each time I am awed by it's scale, ambition and beauty...imaging generations of craftsmen building it, the history which inspired it's creation and which it in turned generated is amazing. Try to go on a week day if possible, as early as possible, to... More

Not lucky enough to go inside but really enjoyed the views of the outside. It's a beautiful building in a very impressive area with its amazing architecture! The grounds are beautifully kept. There are always a lot of people looking around and using the many available tour guides.

Amazing, such history, organist was practicing when we were there and the sound filled the Chapel and sounded brilliant. Good information about the history and building, also spoke to one of the guides who was a mind of information. Well worth a visit, costs £9 to enter, sadly didn't make evensong. Can imagine on Xmas Eve the atmosphere is electric.

During the day you need to pay to go round , but if you go for evensong it's completely free and simply wonderful . Just queue for 20 or 30 minutes before the service and then enjoy sitting with the choir in the inner chapel ,and listening to them sing . Unforgettable!!!

Having watched Christmas from Kings for many years this is a Chapel I have always wanted to visit & i wasn't dissappointed. It is such a beautiful place & a must visit whilst in Cambridge. I was extra lucky as we saw Evensong was that evening so we went along (it's free) & the choir of Kings was singing -... More

An iconic building on the outside but awesome on the inside. Amazing for a 'private' chapel, on a par with the finest public cathedrals.

The King's chapel is beautiful from the inside, but the choir singing during the afternoon service was fantastic. Unique experience.

Most people will tell you about the majestic Ruben's painting or the amazing vaulted ceiling or the wondrous evensong. But where else can you look at 17th century graffiti? Inside the chapel towards the Rubens painting on the left side, you will see some washed out Red graffiti. You can easily make out a horse. Read a little about Cromwell's... More

We attended sung evensong by candlelight on a Friday and sat in the choir stalls enjoying the singing by candlelight. Check online before hand but held most weekday evenings at 5.30pm no charge. Advisable to be outside at least 30minutes before. Doors open 15 minutes before service. Kings College easy to find. The ceiling is beautiful and the grounds lovely.
