It’s an English institution! Not just it’s connection to an old university but to its musical legacy. Amazing acoustics notwithstanding the magnificent gothic architecture.

A must see if visiting Cambridge! Outstanding site. I did not take a tour, but had readily accessible staff to ask questions. Purchased tickets at the official King’s College visitor center right across the street. Very enjoyable!

We recommend that you get in line at least a half hour before the start of the service. We enjoyed the choir and service.

A beautifully preserved part of our rich history, the chapel never fails to impress almost cathedral like in it's size and splendour. This should be first on the list for any visit to Cambridge.

A stunning chapel in a beautiful location. We visited on the advice on the guy who took us on the punting trip earlier in the day. Glad we did. A little on the expensive side, but worth it.

Visited the afternoon service topped with the works: The church is above everything, powerful and not to be questioned. A good way of getting a glance at the collage for free by paying with an hour of your life in the fantastic chapel.

Amazing building , very quiet and lovely to see on a sunny day, especially as the choir was practising.

It is definitely worth a visit to the King's College Chapel as it is steeped in 550 years of history. During the academic year you are very welcome to attend choral services in the chapel which are held Monday-Saturday at 5.30pm.

Evensong happens every day during the university term. Roughly that means early October to early December, mid January to Easter, Easter to early July. Check the college web site for exact dates.
