Went to Evensong at King's, absolutely stunning performance by the choir and a stunning setting (service was by candlelight at dusk)

In Cambridge for another purpose, I had a morning to spare so visited here and the Fitzwilliam Museum. Admission to the Chapel was £9 but well worth it. The vaulted ceiling has to be seen to be believed and wandering around or just sitting contemplating makes for an enjoyable hour or so.

As part of our tour of Cambridge, we spent time inside the King's College Chapel. The stone vaulted ceiling is fantastic, and we also loved the stained-glass windows. We sat in the chapel while our guide, Rosie, told us about the chapel. We also went into the memorial room, where the names of the King's College men killed in WWI... More

As seen each Christmas Eve for carols, it has so much atmosphere and, for us, so many memories. Try to visit when the choir is in attendance.

Kings' College Chapel is familiar enough to most travellers that it does not require me to give any further description of it here. Suffice to say that for sheer breathtaking magnificence it is unsurpassed. The exterior is glorious, but too many visitors make the appalling mistake of foregoing the chance to go inside. Do it, even if it means missing... More

This is a beautiful chapel. It can be cold so wrap up if visiting in winter months. You cannot tale photos or videos inside which is a shame

Well worth a visit built 1500 true English heritage. The time spent inside is well worth a visit. Also talk to the guides they have lots of interesting stories to tell.

The King's College Chapel is a beautiful piece of architecture imbued with so much history. The stain glass windows, the fan vaulted ceiling are as amazing as they are beautiful! Tucked away in the side-chapel, there is also a very impressive exhibition on the history of the Chapel. Definitely worth visiting.

One can't go to Cambridge and not attend a service at King's College. The beauty of the 500-year-old chapel is legendary, the acoustics magnificent, and the fan vaulting of the ceiling breathtaking. The organ has been rebuilt and the choir is one of the best in the world. A treat for ears and for eyes!

What a beautiful building. Went as part of guided tour so really helped to hear history of the chapel. Organist practising added to the experience. A must, must see.
