Situated on the criss roads at Union Street and Bridge Street. Nice enough to look at but nothing to write home about.

Edward statue is nice, in the middle of union street, near the union terrace. Is beautiful, but just to take some pictures. There is no much to see or do around.

Statue at a busy junction in the centre of Aberdeen. Benches and steps around it are popular waiting spots if meeting someone in town. Unfortunately it is also a favourite spot for street buskers, some of which are unlistenably bad.

A most dignified rendition of the late King. Without any modernist features so the statue deserves clearly five stars.

Lived in Banchory for 3 years (in Wales now) didn't go into Aberdeen very often, but always looked for the statue to see if the guy playing the bagpipes was there. Nice statue as statues go....... Makes a good landmark.

This is a large statue on Union St and unless you were really interested in Edward VII you could quite happily pass it by without a second glance. My husband still took a photograph of it.

Aberdeen's city centre has a diverse range of sculptures. These range from traditional to contemporary and fill remembrance, memorial and commemoration, functions as well as expression of ideas. Some promote a serious message, however, this, whilst being very imposing, doesn’t appear to do much other...More

I don't think that the statue is one of the top attractions of the city, just a decent statue nothing more. During my stay in Aberdeen I didn't go for it I just found it by chance walking through the streets of downtown. All in...More
