King's College Chapel
King’s College Chapel is a masterpiece of English craftsmanship. It’s part of one of the oldest Cambridge colleges sharing a wonderful sense of history and tradition with the rest of the University.
It was founded by Henry VI in 1441, and includes an elaborate fan-vault ceiling, magnificent stained-glass windows and Ruben's masterpiece, The Adoration of the Magi. Visit King’s College Chapel and you’ll also see an exhibition in the northern side chapels which shows why and how the chapel was built in pictures, works of art and models.
