It is £9 per person entry which seemed steep but when you went in there was lots to see and read about. Allow at least an hour to visit.

A vast building which was used as stables by Oliver Cromwell. The Vergers were very helpful. Early visits avoid the crowds.

Each Christmas there is a queue of people waiting to obtain tickets to attend the Christmas Choir's performances which are recorded and filmed...this is really special and something I will never forget from even a few years ago. A real treat!

We were fortunate enough to be able to attend the free 5pm evensong service with the mens choir. It was beautiful to sit and listen and admire the architecture of this impressive building. The college itself is beautiful, but there are many other beautiful colleges...More

Definitely worth a visit, especially if you can get a guided tour, to hear about the fascinating history of the "Chapel" - it holds 2000.

This lovely chapel is a must when visiting Cambridge and Kings College. This is where the Christmas Services are broadcasted from, with the famous choir singing. Great Atmosphere and well worth a visit.

I visited the chapel for a guided roof tour which was not only fascinating but also spectacular. The stain glass windows are absolutely amazing;some of the best I've seen. Overall it was an exceptional experience which took my breath away

Evensong happens every day during the university term. Roughly that means early October to early December, mid January to Easter, Easter to early July. Check the college web site for exact dates.

Beetee200. I am hoping against hope that it was a joke post by a student - ditto the one about the senseless opulence.
