A little bit about the city: Dundee

Dundee is a modern and exciting city situated at the mouth of the River Tay in Scotland. Having been given the title of the best place to live in Scotland by The Sunday Times, this city is home to every landmark you can think of; a river, a beach, and an extinct prehistoric volcano to name a few, Dundee certainly isn’t short of stunning scenery. Dundee has also been announced as a UNESCO City of Design thanks to the abundance of striking architecture here and is also home to the only V&A museum outside of London. On top of this, there are many cultural spots to enjoy in the city, including an art gallery focusing on the history of Dundee and fine art, a historic ship that allows you to delve into a courageous voyage of the past, and an observatory built for the sole purpose of encouraging the public’s interest in science. This city has a huge amount to offer and it’s no wonder that it is growing in popularity. In terms of transport links, Scotland’s capital, Edinburgh, is just an hour away by train and Dundee is also connected directly by rail to London Kings Cross.
