Why Dundee?

Why Dundee?

From its famous industrial past, to its vivacious present day reincarnation, Dundee has always had plenty going on.

And visitors to the City of Discovery can easily enjoy both the old and new Dundee. From the sights, sounds and smells of a working jute textile mill Verdant Works, and the chance to experience life aboard Captain Scott's ship RRS Discovery, to the cutting edge Sensation Dundee - the only science centre in the country based on the five senses. There are major food, music and film festivals throughout the year, and internationally respected cultural venues such as Dundee Contemporary Arts and the Dundee Rep. If you’re here to shop, you can enjoy the superb Overgate shopping centre and the nearby City Quay, where you’ll find factory outlets selling designer labels at discounted prices. The surrounding area is a golf fan’s dream – within a 30 minutes radius from the city centre you’ll find no less than 50 courses, including the world famous St Andrews and Carnoustie links.
