“henry vi”(8 reviews)
Dating from the mid-15th century and one of the finest examples of medieval architect, this college’s main draw is its chapel that houses Rubens’ Adoration of the Magi.

My wife and I visited Kings College late Monday afternoon arriving just before the last admittance time of 4.30 p.m. The tickets have to be purchased in the shop across the road on King’s Parade. They actually sell an annual pass for £10. There are...More

An extraordinary assembly of imposing architecture, immaculate lawns and ... THAT Chapel. Good views of The Backs and the Cam. Punting mishaps are almost guaranteed. Is it really a place of education or a movie set?

The King's college is certainly the best college in the University of Cambridge to us. It has magnificent front and back views and it has the greatest court and the greatest Chapel. It has everything a student, a teacher and a visitor can dream of...More

A lovely place to visit, even just walking outside. I would have loved to have gone in and experience life inside these walls.

The architecture was quite astonishing, but it is way overpriced because for a little walk, £10 for adults and £6 is a complete ripoff. I mean there is better architecture and views in England for free, so I would probably have given it four stars...More

We are pleased that you appreciated the architecture of King’s College Chapel. The ticket price not only contributes to the upkeep of the Chapel but also goes towards supporting the primary purpose of the College as a place of education, religion, learning and research.

A must see in Cambridge! The Chapel is a true wonder, with its beautiful ceiling, stained glass, and stonework. One could spend the afternoon just wandering about, gawking at the magnificent craftsmanship. The lawns outside the chapel are worth taking in from the paths. Don't...More

Stunning college and the chapel is gorgeous ! Quite expensive to get in (£10 per adult) but worth it in my view. You have to buy your ticket from the visitors centre opposite the entrance to the college.
