The guide gave a great description of the chapel with lots of information. It is a donation entry fee. You can really feel the history in the building. The cemetery next to the chapel has graves from the 1600's. It is a cool place to...More

King's Chapel is an old church, though it not that grand as compared to other big churches and their architectures, but it is well preserved and worth a visit as part of the Freedom trail with some interesting historic facts about this place.

during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
