Exploring King's College

On a sunny Friday afternoon, we took our students on a tour of one of Cambridge's most famous colleges, King's. 

With the stunning architecture, tradition and influence of The University of Cambridge on our doorstep here at Bell Cambridge we regularly take in tours of the college sites. Students are in awe of the amazing settings, histories and atmospheres of each individual college and learn a lot about them and their cultures along the way.

On a sunny afternoon, it seemed the perfect time to visit perhaps the most famous and impressive of the colleges, King’s College. It’s incredible size and appearance rises imposingly from King’s Parade, the former high street of Cambridge.

Starting with the breathtaking chapel, students took selfies and more serious artistic photographs of the detailed stone work as they wandered around. Astounded they were so close to the River Cam, which King's College backs onto, we watched as brave punters continued to glide along.
