The Basics

Admission tickets to King’s College include self-guided access to the Chapel—home to the world’s largest fan vaulted ceiling—and the expansive grounds, but all other buildings are off-limits to the general public.

To gain a deeper understanding of King’s College history, visit as part of a student- or graduate-led tour, or opt for an excursion which includes stops at other Cambridge colleges such as Pembroke. Meanwhile, time-pressed travelers can combine Cambridge city tours with visits to King’s College or explore both Oxford University and Cambridge University in one day.

Cambridge - facts and anecdotes
Excellent tour full of historical and other anecdotes around the main colleges in Cambridge. Saw the inside of Pembroke College and the chapel, and saw the classic view of Kings College and chapel over the meadow. Great taster session, and excellent to hear how life is as a student at Cambridge. Thanks Ben.

Our guide (Claire) was very knowledgable about Cambridge Uni and told us a lot of unknown interesting facts about the place. We were shown around Trinity and Kings Colleges and other lovely places close by. As someone who had never been to Cambridge before, this tour made my visit far more enjoyable.

We had a tour guide Claire who was absolutely amazing. The whole tour from start to finish was interesting. The walk around was beautiful. I would recommend everyone visiting Cambridge to book this tour. I feel it’s important to have a tour guide from a student- past or present. Jo and Paul
