The ceiling of the chapel alone is worth the tour. There is also a fantastic story about the “Night Climbers” and an orange traffic cone that visitors should ask about. The story gives the place a personality.

Amazing building. Didn’t do grounds as too cold. Well organised information to explain about the chapel. Spent about 40 mins there. £9 entry fee but lasts 12 months.

Absolutely love this architecture. The front of the chapel is my favourite place to sit and eat lunch and watch the world go by when I'm on a lunch break.

Absolutely wonderful, and a must see when you visit Cambridge. The fan vaulted ceiling is like no other, and the history evidenced in the stonework and carvings is fascinating

This wonderful chapel is a must for visitors to Cambridge. It is the finest example of perpendicular gothic architecture in the country (or anywhere, I would guess) and the soaring fan vault is wonderful. The stained glass behind the high altar is medieval and complements...More
