It was a very nice atmosphere in the church, the environment in the old historical building is coming under your skin. The marvellous light coming through the coloured windows. You must visit if you’re in Aberdeen.

We visited on an Offer Holder day with my daughter. The University is very impressive, with many accolades. It's also well managed and their communications are outstanding. We loved the Chapel and everything about this special and ancient Scottish institution.

This is probably one of the highlights of Aberdeen. An old college, at least 500 years old, very Oxbridge-style, although rather small. It's a nice place to stop by and take a few pictures when in Aberdeen. However, it's smaller than the classic colleges of...More

I loved King's College Chapel. My husband and I were fortunate to have a tour guide who explained the history of this proud College Chapel. I would recommend you find out a little before you go to enhance your experience.
