This medieval masterpiece took 70 years to build from 1441 onwards and was founded by Henry VI. This college is a fine example of late English medieval architecture and is a wonder to gaze upon.

Walking through the grounds of King’s is one of the loveliest things to do in Cambridge, and takes you right out of the hustle and bustle of the town centre.

A great, if overpriced, college to visit. The grounds are lovely to stroll round but the highlight has to be the chapel.
