You can't really go to Cambridge without a visit to at least one of the famous universities, and we opted for Kings College so we could see this fantastic chapel. The interior is fabulous, the ceiling ornate, and it was worth the visit. The other...More

The student rate is available to visitors with proof of student status from any country and I am sorry to hear that this was not the case on the occasion of your visit.

We attended both Lessons and Carols, and Christmas day Eucharist. The choir is unsurpassed. The chapel has beautiful stained glass windows. The dean was welcoming and even remembered us from a previous meeting.

What a fabulous place this is. Stuffed with history and wonderment, it should be a must on everyone's list. The ceiling fan vaults have to be seen to be believed. Very beautiful indeed, and SO much interesting history.
