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.

What a thrill to be able to say that “I went to Kings College”! Of course it was just a visit, but still...so impressive. The deputy and grand list of prestigious scholars and alumni makes these hallowed halls even more reason to visit.

Medieval architecture stuns the eyes, with tall spires along the building's roofline. Breathtaking beauty, precision and construction. Started in the mid-1400's by King Henry VI. The grounds and courtyard inside the the building/dormitory walls is gorgeous. An impressive place to visit.

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.
