The day turned out to be much sunnier than expected. We used one of the Park and Ride facilities so that we need not drive in the centre of Cambridge. This was a great decision. We walked everywhere and particularly around Kings College
I have no quibble with the magnificence of Kings College, the history and architecture are amazing. We spent just over an hour looking round, but for a family group this can work out quite pricey, especially if you want to see some of the other...More
Truly magnificent spectacle that only today I walked around yet again. It's a great place to amble around on a Sunday and feel the presence of history. Very close to all amenities within Cambridge city centre too.
Visiting King's college was the best thing to do in Cambridge. The tickets are sold in a shop across the street and cost 9.00 pound. We didn't have to wait long to buy our tickets. First stop was the Chapel which was amazing. We then...More
We queued for ten minutes in the pouring rain only to be told we had to get tickets at the gift shop. We queued again for half an hour in the pouring rain to get tickets, the shop is not set up for selling tickets,...More

We were sorry to hear about your experience when you visited recently on what was clearly a very poor day in terms of the weather. Visitors can buy tickets at our Visitor Centre, at the Chapel itself or online in advance. In very busy periods...More
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
You can’t possibly go to Cambridge and not go to the kings college especially the chapel!
You need to purchase your ticket in a shop just opposite the college which they also have cute souvenirs. Entrance is £10 students £6 luckily I had my NUS...More

You look around the College on your own so it is enitrely up to you how long you spend. There is a leaflet which you can pick up and use as a self-guided tour. This takes you around the Chapel and the College grounds. I would suggest that you allow 1 hour. There is a very interesting exhibition about the history of the College and Chapel accessed via the Chapel but I'm afraid there is no film. I hope that you enjoy your visit.
