Guests often ask if Dundee and Perth are worth a visit, and the answer is a resounding yes!
Dundee is compact, dynamic and thriving. Situated on the Tay estuary it’s a small but mighty city that packs a punch with superb activities and unique experiences for visitors. The charming waterfront benefited from a major regeneration, and is now home to the world famous Antarctic research vessel RRS Discovery and 19th-century warship, HM Frigate Unicorn.
RRS Discovery was built in Dundee and sailed by Captain Scott and his heroic team to Antarctica in 1901. Jump on board to discover the fascinating story of the ship’s beginnings and her amazing Antarctic expedition and voyages thereafter. A visit to HMS Unicorn will take you back in time. This wooden frigate is a rare survivor and tells the captivating story of her
navy sails. She’s one of the six oldest ships in the world.
Verdant Works is a five star visitor attraction that celebrates Dundee’s industrial textile heritage. The beautifully refurbished Mill dates back to 1833 and tells the curious story of why jute and Dundee are inseparable. Don’t forget to pick up a delicious piece of Dundee cake.
The V&A is Scotland’s first dedicated design museum and the only other outside of London. The building’s design stretches out into the River Tay, reconnecting the city with its historic riverside. Quite spectacular.
