Welcome to Kings College Chapel

Kings College Chapel

Perhaps the most popular attraction in Cambridge is the university itself. Steeped in tradition, Cambridge University is the second oldest university in England, second only to Oxford University. The university's colleges are the main attraction on this beautiful campus. Viewing the colleges gives visitors the opportunity to stroll through Britain's architectural history. Peterhouse is the oldest college, founded in 1284; while Homerton College was approved in 2010, making it the newest addition to the Cambridge family. Strolling around the campus gives visitors the opportunity to stroll through history, surveying the changes in architecture and style from the 13th century until the present. Kings College and the gothic-style Kings College Chapel are not to be missed on this prestigious campus. The college was founded under the patronage of King Henry VI. The intricate chapel was built over a period of nearly a hundred years, 1446 to 1531, and is home to the famous Chapel choir made up of many of the college's students as well as younger choristers from Kings College School.
