King’s College, Cambridge.

Henry VI (1421-1471) founded King’s
College in 1441. The College’s buildings were intended to be a
magnificent display of the power of royal patronage, and Henry went to
great lengths to ensure that King’s College Chapel would be unequalled
in size and beauty.

King’s is one of the handful of colleges to
be next to the river Cam. The river is very popular with tourists,
mainly for the traditional Cambridge activity of punting.
