- King's College and Chapel
Please note: The colleges are active places of study and as such will be closed to visitors at certain times of the year. During the college exam period in April-May and the first week of term in October (the exact dates vary each year), most colleges will not be open to visitors. King's College Chapel remains open (though we aren't able to walk through the grounds), as well as the Fitzwilliam Museum, which houses the impressive art and antiquities collection of the University of Cambridge.
University Campus and Colleges
We might also include Queens College, with its beautiful medieval Old Court. The Court consists of the chapel, library, and dining hall and is home to both an unusual 'sun and moon dial' and also William Etheridge's 'Mathematical Bridge', a great feat of 18th Century engineering. Finally, we may stop by King's College and Chapel founded in 1441, and the icon of the city of Cambridge; a masterpiece of English architecture, with its fan-vaulted ceiling and Rubens' altarpiece.
A stroll down Trinity Street will take in Trinity College, which was founded by Henry VIII in 1546, and St. John's College, with its School of Pythagoras and its neo-Gothic Bridge of Sighs—two iconic emblems of Cambridge.
