Cambridge has a definite wow factor with so many interesting buildings, a great vibe and upmarket ambience. Kings chapel is a beautiful piece of architecture and should certainly a subject for your camera. So much history behind this building. Don’t miss this one.

No wonder the college is wealthy. This is a nice chapel and in nice grounds but is simply not worth the £10 fee.

A beautiful building both inside and out. Ticket to visit costs 10 pounds but including the grounds down to the river.
