Bagpipes

Emerge from your Dundee hotel to discover the civic splendour of City Square and Caird Hall that echoes back to a Victorian era of wealth created by jute barons.

Historic Dundee

At the RRS Discovery you can explore the bridge and the galley and learn about Captain Scott’s Antarctic voyage. Clamber up the 232 steps of the tallest surviving medieval tower in the country, the Old Steeple, with its fabulous Tay views. Beano and Dandy fans adore the Desperate Dan and Minnie the Minx bronze statues in City Square, paying homage to local giant DC Thomson.

Art and museums in Dundee

Former jute mill the Verdant Works in West Henderson’s Wynd relates the city’s industrial past. At the Victorian Gothic McManus Galleries in Albert Square, the world’s worst poet, William McGonagall, narrates the Tay Bridge disaster that killed 75 people. You can also inspect the Tay Whale skeleton.

Quirky things to do in Dundee

Take the kids to the Sensation science centre in the Greenmarket to find out what you’ll look like as a monkey and how to perform keyhole surgery – they pioneered it in Dundee.

Events in Dundee

Dundee’s Belgrade Theatre, the cathedral and other music venues host the city’s jazz festival each May. Book your Dundee hotel in time for the enormously popular free Godiva Festival, which puts on big pop acts and a funfair every July.
