King's College Chapel is the chapel of King's College in the University of Cambridge. It is considered one of the finest examples of late Perpendicular Gothic English architecture. The Chapel was built in phases by a succession of kings of England from 1446 to 1515, a period which spanned the Wars of the Roses and three subsequent decades. The Chapel's large stained glass windows were not completed until 1531, and its early Renaissance rood screen was erected in 1532–36. The Chapel is an active house of worship, and home of the King's College Choir. The Chapel is a significant landmark and a commonly used symbol of the city of Cambridge.

Impressive architecture and a museum I only had the chance to browse but would love to explore in more detail on a second visit.
I studied at King's College, and one of the facets of that experience I miss most was passing this incredible piece of architecture on a daily basis. The Chapel is a world landmark certainly deserving of your visit. The interior is especially breathtaking.
Absolutely stunning building and a must visit when in Cambridge. The outside is very majestic and is worth walking arou d to see all that it offers, which is plenty. Inside is incredible from the vaulting in the ceiling which fascinating but let's not forget how old this building is and the monumental effort of design and building skills it would have taken. The organ sits in the middle which is on the large size. It has a lovely calm feeling to it and is enjoyable to just sit for a while. There are also some side rooms which have stories of history and some detail on how the chapel was built. It does cost to get in but a small price to pay for what you get in return.
The chapel’s architecture is really beautiful. Be sure to walk around the garden to enjoy the sight. Do not miss the stone with the Chinese poet’s carving at the end of the bridge!
The architecture of this place is truly mesmerising! The fan vaulting is the undoubted glory of this chapel, and is the tallest fan vaults in the whole of Europe. The construction was started by king Henry VI, but was finished two generations later by Henry the VIII. The chapel which looks more like a church took nearly a century for its completion and played an important part during the English civil war in the 16th century. It costs £9 to enter but I guess it's worth it.
Beautiful chapel. Marvelous architecture. Has a lot of history attached to the place. Must visit when in Cambridge.

Really beautiful chapel, showcasing the history behind its contruction throughout the generations. The place is absolutely stunning and would thoroughly recommend when you are visiting in Cambridge. The price is a bit steep but OK if you have a student discount.
4/5 if you randomly walk in, 6/5 if you are able to catch a concert. Very powerful organ, sounds like you are listening to Led Zepplin, and the children s choir is on point.
Amazing place! People very friendly and polite!
Really overpriced for what you can effectively see. However, really nice place for a walk in the park during a sunny day
Very impressive and worth a vistit, its a massive building so in winter its very cold in there
It is hard to imagine how they managed to build this second largest Gothic building in Europe.Take time to walk around and,of course,attend a service if you can. The acoustics are exceptional. An amazing building in the beautiful historic city of Cambridge, amazing stucture and beautiful grounds, not to be missed if visiting Cambridge
Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. Every single day is like a blank page of our life. Every person we meet, every event we participate in is a lively essay. In the course of traveling, cultures encounter other culture and they often encounter cultures that are very different from their own.
