King's College, Cambridge

King's College was founded in 1441 by Henry VI (1421-71) and is one of the 31 colleges in the University of Cambridge. King's has an outstanding academic record and is also world-famous for its Chapel and choir. The grounds and Chapel only are open to visitors.

King's College Chapel is a splendid example of late Gothic (Perpendicular) architecture. It was started in 1446 by Henry VI (1421-71) and took over a century to build. It has the largest fan vault in the world and some of the finest medieval stained glass.

During the Easter Term (April-June), which is the examination period in Cambridge, the grounds are closed to the public but the Chapel remains open.
