Dundee is in North East Scotland and is Scotland's 4th largest city. The city is just over 800 years old. Dundee is known as Scotland’s sunniest city.
It is situated beside Scotland's longest river, the River Tay, and is home to RRS Discovery - the ship built in 1901 for Captain Scott who travelled to the Antarctic. Dundee has an excellent offering of attractions including the McManus Art Gallery & Museum, Science Center, Frigate Unicorn and Transport Museum.
A £1 billion master plan to regenerate and to reconnect the Waterfront to the city center which started in 2001 is expected to be completed within a 30-year period, with the spectacular Dundee Victoria & Albert Museum opened in 2018 at a cost of £80 million, a stunning purpose-built riverside museum, which will be an international centre of design for Scotland
It's a great place to explore on foot, a highlight being a walk up to Dundee Law, an extinct volcano with a peak of 572 ft offering tremendous views of the city and its surrounds.
There are some incredible places to visit in Dundee that will both fascinate and entertain. Don’t miss the exciting exhibits of the McManus: Dundee’s Art Gallery & Museum, learn about Captain Robert Falcon Scott’s pioneering polar Antarctic exploration aboard the RRS Discovery, see the working of a Victorian jute mill at Verdant Works - Scotland’s Jute Museum or expand your mind at the Dundee Science Centre.
