Few cities meld history with modern urban flair quite like Dundee. You can't walk a mile without bumping into a gem-like place, and the city's cobbled lanes and hidden courtyards are a paradise to wander and discover.

With its compact size and streets packed with all sorts of treasures - from architectural to cafés to atmospheric booksellers - Dundee is an urban wanderer's delight. You can journey back in time at museums, including one of Europe's finest industrial museums, or step on board Dundee's floating attractions; discover tales of Pictish stones and legendary explorers, or gaze up at the stars in an observatory. And when the sun sinks slowly beyond the River Tay and the city's buildings light up the night, there are plenty of excellent venues for gastronomes to enjoy.
