  • Wonderful chapel full of beautiful architecture. Lovely lady volunteer gave us lots of information about the chapel and the dark oak wooden screen, dedicated by Henry V11 to his wife Anne Boleyn
  • Amazing college with a big and fancy design 😂. Overall this chapel really worth visiting
  • The highlight of our visit to Cambridge, the evensong was a sheer delight in this jewel of a chapel. Truly memorable.
  • It took five kings nearly a century to build. And it shows​. King's College Chapel is one of the most impressive buildings on earth.
  • The building is amazing and very breathtaking. The choral evensong is very good and a must to see on a visit
