About Kings College elsewhere
"It is interesting how they manage to edit history a bit and in their exhibitions make virtually no reference to the mental health of the founder, Henry VI. However this chapel is a stunning sight."
"When Henry VI founded the school he granted it a huge number of endowments, including much valuable land, a plan for formidable buildings (Henry intended the nave of the College Chapel to be the longest nave in Europe) and several religious relics ,supposedly including a part of the Holy Cross and the Crown of Thorns."
"It has been speculated that the choice of the college as a beneficiary by the two later Henry’s was a political one, with Henry VII in particular concerned to legitimate a new, post civil war, Tudor regime by demonstrating patronage of what was by definition the King’s College."
"Henry VI, the king after whom the college is named, oversaw the work."
"Trumpington Street runs into King's Parade, on the left hand side of which stands King's College, founded in 1441 by Henry VI and the earliest of the royal foundations."

Obviously this college city is very old. I love to get transported back in time of the fantastic discoveries that have been made here (evolution theorie by Darwin, Law of gravitation by Newton, DNA molecule by Watson & Crick...).
To my opinion, the best moment to visit cambridge would be in fall or early spring so most of the colleges are open with very fey tourists to bother you.
