The chapel, more like a cathedral, is magnificent. The music and the choir are fabulous. We attended Evensong on a Saturday evening. Every seat was taken. It was an experience I'll never forget for its majesty and its beauty.

Please plan and attend a service if possible. The choir was too good! The place is so pretty and so well maintained. The large stained glass windows of the Chapel are the finest in the world.

We come here for evensong twice a year and make a special detour on our way home from Norfolk. It is such a wonderful experience to visit the Chapel and hear the famous choir.

This chapel is a real gem. It is huge: more cathedral-like than a 'chapel'. It was built with an emphasis on grandeur and the architecture is splendid. A 'must see' when in Cambridge. Those who are so inclined might like to attend Evensong (for free)...More

Absolutely wonderful voices and definitely worthwhile. But sometimes it felt more like a performance than a prayer. Many of the congregation seemed like they just wanted to be entertained

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