King's College Chapel

Highly recommended
Built between 1446 and 1515, this building represents the apogee of the Perpendicular Gothic style. Its scale is more in keeping with the chancel of a cathedral than a college chapel. Of twelve bays, the nave soars upwards supported by buttressing so fine that it appears little more than framing for the 25 16C stained-glass windows. The 2 000t of vaulting seems to float in the air. Note the rood screen, Renaissance choirstalls, The Adoration of the Magi by Rubens and its famous organ.
