What to do in Dundee
Dundee is a relatively compact city, which means it’s easy to get around and explore all that it has to offer.
If you want to learn more about the history of the city, head to the Verdant Works, a restored textile factory that tells the story of Dundee’s jute manufacturing past. The city’s shipyards are also where the RSS Discovery was built. This ship was chartered by Captain Scott on his brave expedition to Antarctica. Today, you can take a tour of this remarkable ship at Discovery Point.
Another famous ship docked in Dundee is the HM Frigate Unicorn, the oldest British-built warship still floating today.
For a uniquely Dundee cultural experience, visit the McManus, an art gallery and museum housed in a beautiful Gothic Revival-style building. You could also catch a performance at the Dundee Rep Theatre, or explore the over 120 public artworks scattered throughout the city.
If you want to get active, take a trip out to Dundee Law, formed from an extinct volcano that boasts a 572-foot-high peak. This provides stunning views well worth the walk up to the top.
Four miles east of the city centre lies Broughty Ferry, a seaside suburb dominated by its own castle. Several of the floors inside the castle have been converted into a museum open for the public to enjoy.
The Dundee Science Centre is a must-visit if you’re with your family, as there are plenty of child friendly activities to keep your little ones entertained.
On the other hand, if eating and shopping is on your mind, check out the Overgate and Wellgate shopping centres for a wide variety of stores. There are also plenty of coffee houses, cafes, restaurants and more to keep you satisfied, from the Blue Marlin Seafood Restaurant to Madigan’s Food Emporium.
