View of part of King's College, the Old School's Building and Senate House in Cambridge from King's Parade Street. To the left is the east fa├žade of the huge Chapel. The Chapel was built between 1446 and 1515 and is a magnificent example of a late medieval Royal Chapel, in the Gothic Perpendicular Style. In contrast the chapel stands next to two relatively new 18th century buildings: on the right the Senate House, holding the official governing body of the university, which was built in 1722-4 by James Gibbs. In the middle can just be seen the east facade of the Old Schools Building of 1754.
