Your Visit

We are delighted to announce that the Chapel is open to visitors, and members of the public are welcome to join us for Choral services.  Information on attending Chapel services can be found here.

Visitors to the Chapel and Grounds should enter via the Clare Gate entrance, located on Trinity Lane.  Please ensure you have purchased your tickets in advance.

What the Visit Includes

Among the Chapel's many facets you will see an exhibition of the history of the College, the world's largest fan vaulted ceiling and the Adoration of the Magi by Rubens.  In addition, outside you will be able to view the wildflower meadow on the back lawn, which was established in 2020, as well as the Xu Zhimo stone in the memorial garden.

All visits are self guided, and you are welcome to walk at your leisure.  We kindly ask that you respect the space of others during your visit, and to respect the College as a place of study.
