The Chapel of Haddo House

Haddo House line drawingFor over a hundred years the Chapel at Haddo House has offered ecumenical Christian worship to all those at Haddo and in the neighbouring community. The Chapel adjoins the north wing of the House and was built by Johnny and Ishbel, 7th Earl and Countess (later 1st Marquess and Marchioness) of Aberdeen. The architect was George Edmund Street, a leading practitioner of the Victorian Gothic revival, best known perhaps for his design of the Royal Courts of Justice in the Strand. The organ is a beautiful instrument by “Father” Willis and can be heard at services and recitals.

Services are open to everyone and are held on the first Sunday of the month from Easter through to October and every Sunday in August. There is also a service on Christmas Day.

Tea and coffee are served in the Library of Haddo House from 17:00, with the services usually beginning at 18:00. Everyone is welcome. Please enter via the Chapel door. To find out more about the Chapel services (and to check timings) please call the National Trust for Scotland on 01651 851440 or visit the NTS website.

The Chapel is also available for weddings, with the opportunity to continue celebrations in the House, the Halland gardens. To find out about weddings at Haddo, please call the National Trust for Scotland on 01651 851440 or visit the NTS website.
