We came to visit the university for an open day and loved the architecture of the outside and asked how to get in. Going inside and seeing the stain glass windows was fantastic. There are wooden ‘paddles’ which have the location of each window and...More

Even if you have nothing to do with the school in Aberdeen, visit the chapel and wander around the grounds. The old buildings are beautiful and worth the visit!

A small but interesting chapel attached to the University. Perhaps the most striking thing about it is the stained glass. Though not terribly old compared with the building, the variety of styles and subjects is fascinating. Well worth a look.

Many of the buildings at the University of Aberdeen are beautiful and exemplify many centuries of architecture, but King's College shines brightest on the campus. Stunning building, and worth a visit!

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.
