We are delighted to announce that the Chapel reopened to visitors once again on May 18th. Choral services will remain closed to members of the public until a later date. More information can be found below.
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.
Kings' College's Head Gardener, Steve Coghill, will take you on a 1.5 hour tour through the wildflower meadow, the College Provost's private garden, and the Fellow's Garden. The Provost's Garden and Fellows Garden are not normally accessible to the public, so this is an opportunity to enter private areas, and join Steve on an exclusive tour.
The tour will start at 11.00am, and end in the Fellows Garden at 12.30. At the end of the tour, you will be welcome to enjoy the Fellows Garden at your leisure.
If you would also like to visit the Chapel, which is included in your fee, please arrive at 10:30.
Tours are available on July 21st and 28th, and August 11th. To book, please click here.
We regret that this is not available to children.
