“best furnished scottish church”

King's College Chapel
Ranked #17 of 156 things to do in Aberdeen
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 February 2013

This is the church to visit in Scotland if you want a good idea of what a late mediaeval church was really like here, as it has the best collection of original furnishings, with its screen, stalls, canopies, misericords, pulpits, roof and even altar still remaining from the early 16th century. Topped with the brilliant crown steeple, set in the picturesque old town, this is somewhere not to be missed in Scotland.

I am not a big fan of dreary looking churches but some people just light up a room. The new sermon-meister makes a dark night in Old Aberdeen glow. Of course, he has a tough act to follow in that an earlier Chaplain was several times Sermonperson of the year (or somesuch). Then there is his choice of straight man. Yep, the heritage and line of stars that stretches back to James Clerk Maxwell and a couple of Royalty fans before him is well honoured. Six-thirty-Sunday-searing

Our son was married here last year and have been back since for other services. Wonderful 'crown' on the tower. It may look austere outside but inside the gorgeous stained glass windows make the chapel light. Lovely setting on the green lawns of the University. Well worth a visit

Attended a wedding in the Chapel so plenty of time to sit and reflect on the simple beauty of the architecture and the stained glass windows, The roof is especially attractive.

Beautiful family wedding made even more memorable by stunning Chapel. Unforgetable experience. Family had travelled from USA and had never experienced anything quite like it. The history involved in the building as well as the connection with Aberdeen University made it very impressive. Photographs taken outside were stunning given the architecture
