Why Discover Dundee?
"Dundee's setting is probably more extraordinary than any other city in the UK. It is about as ideal - ludicrously ideal - as any setting could be"
Discovery is a word never far from one's lips when talking about Dundee today. It has always been a city full of life, energy and endeavour but these days it has transformed itself into a dynamic, modern city with an international reputation as a centre for arts and culture, life sciences and the creative industries.
In the heart of Dundee city centre, The McManus: Dundee's Gallery and Museum is home to one of Scotland's most impressive collections of fine and decorative art. The world's greatest museum of art and design, the Victoria and Albert Museum has announced a proposal for a new landmark building in Dundee through a partnership with the University, Dundee City Council and Scottish Enterprise. 'The V&A at Dundee' will form a new 21st century design for Scotland and the world. The £45 million project will occupy a prime site at the heart of Dundee's redeveloped waterfront which will reconnect the city and the water.
The city has a beautiful collection of parks and open spaces, more hours of sunshine Blue Flag status beach and a multi-award-winning revamped city centre. Dundee offers an excellent environment for visitors and residents alike.
Dundee is also within a short drive time of Scotland's most spectacular scenery and outdoor pursuits including kayaking, hill-walking and ski-ing.
