Opening time

  • 10am - 3:30pm - Monday-Friday
    The Chapel is open to visitors Monday-Friday 10am-3:30pm.

The Crown Tower remains one of the most historic and beautiful emblems and icons of our University. However, the Chapel sanctuary which sits beneath the Tower is also a space of beauty.

King’s College Chapel contains five rare decorations made of canvas and wooden scaffolding dating back to the 16th and 17th century.

Services are held every Wednesday during the academic term and there are also daily and important annual services such as Remembrance and Founders Day held in the Chapel throughout the year.
