Interesting history and architecture. Great wee shop with postcards and Fair-trade items. The guide was so friendly and informative. I will visit again when I have more time on my next visit to Aberdeen

As I like old cathedrals and churches this was a must to visit. Very old and peaceful, but nothing out of the ordinary.

I love to walk around this church. The surrounding graveyard is beautiful and so so old. I wander through and read the stones. Also the back of the graveyard overlooks a lovely park. The cathedral is also lovely. We visited during a carol service at Christmas! So beautiful I was in tears!

A cathedral full of interest and history. Some beautiful wall mountings including the war memorial. Superb choir and the remembrance service is always a special experience. Hosts many social and choral events. Well worth a visit or a worship experience.
