The Chapel

The Chapel, which dates from the reigns of Mary I and Elizabeth I, is the centre of religious life for the College. There are regular services and the Chapel is also used for concerts.

The Chapel was completed in 1567, and all the statues here are of famous people who studied at Trinity, including Sir Isaac Newton, Francis Bacon and Alfred Lord Tennyson. The painting at the east end depicts St Michael binding Satan.
