Dundee, Scotland’s fourth largest city, is an increasingly popular choice
for a short city-break destination or a great family day out.
The city’s burgeoning cultural quarter is home to Dundee Rep Theatre and Dundee Contemporary Arts whilst just across the city centre, on the bank of the River Tay, Captain Scott’s famous Antarctic expedition ship R.R.S. Discovery is berthed.
The city centre has the magnificent glass-fronted Overgate shopping centre whilst the pedestrianised High Street leads neatly from the Overgate to the Murraygate and Wellgate shopping centres.
Discovery Point relates the fascinating and inspirational story of the Royal Research Ship Discovery, her famous captain, Robert Falcon Scott, and their exploration of Antarctica. Exploring the fully restored RRS Discovery will be the highlight of your time here.
The family home of the Earls of Strathmore and Kinghorne, the castle has been a royal residence since 1372. Childhood home of The Queen Mother and the setting for Shakespeare’s ‘Macbeth’.
