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.

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.

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
