A Bright Dundee Tour involves a stroll around the city's Albert Square learning about the history and heritage that few people are aware of. Emphasizing what existed in the area in 1867, the tour takes about 75 minutes and costs £10.
To gain the best experience from the tour and to discover certain artefacts attached high up the buildings, bringing binoculars is most advisable, (your guide has a few available if needed).
Originally the 150 year old Albert Institute, the McManus Galleries building as we know it is explained, and we learn about the statues and plaques on the walkways.
James Carmichael, Queen Victoria, George Kinloch, and Robert Burns all have interesting stories, and the cartoon character Oor Wullie cannot be passed by.
There are two Dundee Women's Trail plaques to be seen, and a memorial quotation to the memory of Dundee men who didn't come back from the Spanish Civil War is recited, as is a Robert Burns poem to a girlfriend Mary Campbell after she died, and four panels on the Queen Victoria statue pedestal are examined. Another must see is our leaning tower of Dundee.
