Many of the colleges are open to the public but perhaps the most interesting college to visit is Kings College. Kings College was founded in 1441 by King Henry VI shortly after completing Eton College near Windsor. The college, one of the largest in Cambridge, is dominated by its late gothic chapel, celebrated for its large fan vaulted ceiling and stained glass windows. Pass By: Fitzwilliam MuseumThis is the university museum and was founded in 1816 by Viscount Fitzwilliam. He left his private collection to the university and also provided the funds to construct the building. Over the years the museum has been extended and is well known for its Egyptian galleries and it works of art by Rubens, Constable, Degas, Renoir, Raphael and Gainsborough amongst many others. Pass By: Parker's PieceSee the impressive green space where the rules of football were created.
