Delightful Dundee

Dundee is Scotland's fourth city and has become an attractive destination thanks to development of the city's infrastructure and cultural heritage. Here you can combine a city break and good country living with miles of green landscapes just a short trip away. Places to eat, drink and enjoy music are not lacking but you will be surprised that Dundee is also home to an extinct volcano!

Dundee - a little background and things to see

Dundee is a university town with the University of Dundee and the University of Abertay adding to the vibrant, cosmopolitan feel. There is definitely something for everyone here from the statue of Desperate Dan, the famous comic strip character in the centre and the Sensation Science centre to impress your children to a day's visit to the old factory site, Verdant Works for those of you wishing to learn more about the city's history. Verdant Works is a museum evoking the once dominant jute industry in Dundee. At its most dynamic, these factories provided work for no less than 50 000 people in the city, mostly women and children as they were cheaper to employ. The harsh, dangerous conditions of factory workers in the 19th century are brought to life, thanks to the museum's audio guides and displays
As a major attraction in Dundee, the R.R.S. Discovery, Captain Scott's Antarctic expedition ship and Discovery Point tells the great story and promises to be a fantastic journey to Antarctica for all the family! Learn about polar conditions, surviving on board and the particularities of the ship.
For a global introduction to the history of Dundee, a visit to the McManus Galleries is well worth a visit. The city's museum offers an interesting array of objects and relics covering periods from the Iron Age through local innovations in Information Technology. Indeed, Dundee is still considered a hub for computer technologies, attracting many companies to the city.
For nights out in Dundee, you can find a place to suit your taste for atmosphere, from the stylish Reading Room to the lounge bar, the Nether Inn (an absolute must for students) or even the Rep Theatrecafe with its wide range of foods…good food and drink and live music await you whatever your budget too.
Dundee is a great place to base yourself if you are spending time in Scotland, enjoy the walks in the wild countryside close to the city or book excursions to cities like Perth, St Andrews, visit the Scone Palace, where Scottish Kings were crowned. The palace has lost nothing of its magical charm even if today, it serves as a venue for events of humbler importance!
