Having been married in a previous life in the chapel over 30 years ago i was surprised to find how little of the place i actually remembered ! Delightful building located in heart of aberdeen with its cobbled and narrow courtyards and streets leading o chapel. Beautiful architecture with gothic tones. On a dry sunny day absolutely wonderful for photographs.... More

Very lucky to participate in the University and OTC/Air Squadron parade and service for Remembrance day. Nostalgic as i was in uniform in 1967-69, so maybe a little "one-eyed" Lovely windows.

We had a small organ concert, the light games with the coloured glas made a wonderful atmosphaire. We could imagine how a King could enter and visit this chappel.

This place is one that locals tend to underappreciate. The chap is a model of Gothic beauty. The Christmas carol service is beautiful.

Located within the University of Aberdeen. A visit to this place gives a fair idea of the art and architecture of yester years

Called in during our stroll through Old Aberdeen. Beautiful chapel which seems to be open most days and had rather an Oxbridge feel about it.
