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 a beautiful chapel, small but very interesting with a very peaceful atmosphere. If you visit when the choir is performing, it is quite exceptional.

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.

An impressive compound, the whole university and the Chapel linked to it. The college dates back to 1495, and the chapel was built then, while the other buildings around date from early 16th century and later. still the whole place feels like you moved back...More

Critics may say its only a chapel but think back to the 16C and think what it must have been like. A splendid surround for a wedding (of Aberdeen alumnii) and wonderful for graduations and conferences. Its easy to park outside popular events and have...More
