It is expensive to get in - £8 and we had to queue in the shop for a while for tickets and you don't see much. Best view of the chapel is from the backs which you can see by walking up the back or going on punting tour so might just recommend that.

The chapel is spectacular and well worth the price of admission. If you visit Cambridge you should make it your first stop as it is an attraction that is without rival in England. The grounds of King’s College are also worth exploring and include some great views of the chapel.

Truly one of the wonders of Britain. Takes your breath away. An interesting and informative though slightly academic exhibition about the history of the chapel - the academic nature to be expected in one of the world,s leading university cities.

Stunning chapel in centre of Cambridge. Cannot miss King's Chapel when walking along Kings Parade. It is worth paying to go inside the chapel as there are lots of little exhibitions and lots to see, as well as helpful guides.

Most week days, the choir - one of the best in the world - performs during the 5:30 Choral Evensong. A not-to-be-missed event for visitors to Cambridge. The architecture of the "chapel" is spectacular and worth the visit in itself.
