Nice looking church with sheave yard in the centre of Aberdeen. Pleasant place to eat a sandwich or walk through to get between Union street and schoolholl. Architecturally it's a nice building snc the gravestones reveal local history.

The cemetery is a font of knowledge for people tracing their family history. It is also a peaceful place to walk through. There are benches so you can sit and eat your packed lunch.

It's true that this CAN be a peaceful escape from the hustle & bustle of Union St but I'd advise you to check it out before stepping in. I went into explore one sunny afternoon on my own but discovered a couple of 'visitors' worse for wear who were beginning to get a bit verbally shirty with each other. I... More

If you like wandering through graveyards then this is worth a visit..Quite old as there were many stones where the years had worn the engravings till either gone or difficult to see.However very tranquil and so lush with old greenery.

. take time out in this tranquil oasis. one step away from a bustling Union street.Forget the fast lane ..sit awhile with most interesting reading and not a book in sight, A cemetary ...yes....but a strangely re juvinating place!

A place to stop and have a sit down in the midst of the busy city, more interesting is a visit into the Kirk some real interesting sculptures and the Memorial to the Piper Alpha Disaster are among the things that should be viewed.

Step into Kirk of St Nicholas which is right on Union Street and your immediately stepping out of the hustle and bustle of the main street. The graveyard is very old full of stylish headstones many of which still have legible carving and lettering. Worth a brief 5 mins of your life
