Situated on Union Street this impressive statue looks down on the street. Needs a clean though as it has a little poo on it.

Worth a really close inspection both to admire the quality and the composition of the overall piece.

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.

If you're in the city centre of Aberdeen, specifically on its main artery Union Street you will inevitably see this statue. So, the good news you don't have to go out of your way to see it. If statues of royal personages is your thing,...More

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.
