Top 4 Places to Visit in Dundee


Top 4 Places to Visit in Dundee

Dream Apartments is proud to offer serviced apartments that are now available in Dundee, Scotland. Our 25 completely furnished serviced apartments are just a 7-minute drive from Dundee Airport and are ready to welcome you. Guests may pick between one- and two-bedroom apartments, so whether you're going on a weekend getaway with friends, a family holiday, or a business trip, we've got you covered. Why not book your stay with us and enjoy everything that Dundee has to offer? Here are some suggestions to what you could get up to when visiting.

1) Take a tour of the vaults 

Who knew Dundee has vaults under the city? This fascinating activity is brought to you by DD Tours, which facilitates ghost tours all over Scotland. The Founders, Louise and Stuart, started a website around five years ago to document Dundee stories and serve as a resource for individuals interested in learning more about the city's past. Soon, they were inundated with requests for tours, and the rest, as they say, is history!

Louise and Stuart lead their walks in tandem, which you might find unique for a walking tour. They recently gained access to Custom Exchange's vaults, emptied up, made H&S compliant, and repurposed into a creepy visitor attraction. Be prepared to take some fashion risks, as wearing a super-stylish hard helmet is compulsory while you listen to enthralling stories of Dundee's darkest years. 

2) Try a famous rainbow bagel 

This rainbow bagel is precisely what it sounds like; who couldn't resist joining in on the fun at the Flame Tree Cafe? A baker produces the bagels in London before being sent up to Dundee, and they're so popular that the café sells small rainbow bagel badges in honour of them. It tastes precisely like a regular bagel. However, we think a sweeter filling option would pair nicely with its funky exterior!

3) Admire the street art

OpenClose Dundee is a unique street art programme that has added a much-needed splash of colour to Dundee's doors. OpenClose, founded and led by PhD student Russell Pepper, obtained financing for six doors at first, but owing to the cooperation of local businesses and artists who volunteered to participate, there are currently 19 door murals on the city centre pathway. 

4) Visit the McManus art gallery and museum

The McManus Art Gallery and Museum is set in a lovely Victorian Gothic-style edifice with displays that reflect the narrative of Dundee's history and heritage. Investigate the once-thriving jute industry, as well as Keiller's marmalade and D.C. Thomson's well-known books. Dundee also had a crucial part in the maritime and computing sectors. It's safe to say that this city was a bit of a jack of all trades!

Dream Apartments Dundee is a modern building with forty apartments in the heart of Dundee's vibrant city centre. Choose from one or two-bedroom apartments that are stylishly designed and filled with thoughtful features and facilities for single travellers as well as families.
