“No reason to visit...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2012

The Castlegate is just an area filled with undesirable people! There are sometimes market type stalls but really it's just a passing place.

“Disappointment”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2012

The area used to be a focal point to the city, but now it is in need of repair. The area is now a collection of low market shops and the main building itself needs brightening up like the recent Marischal College

Nothing much to see. A new statue, pigeons and a few drunks sitting around.
