King’s College Chapel is a world-renown masterpiece of English craftsmanship and set within the grounds of one of the oldest Cambridge colleges. As you walk through the grounds you'll be treading on the very same paths as Charles Darwin, Alan Turing, Helena Bonham Carter, and Salman Rushdie to name just a few.

Founded by Henry VI in 1441 to rival Eton College the chapel includes magnificent stained-glass windows, the world's largest fan-vault ceiling, and Ruben's masterpiece, The Adoration of the Magi which was originally painted in 1634 for the Covent of the White Nuns at Louvain in Belgium.
