The city boasts spectacular architecture and captivating museums, fascinating history, a wealth of art and culture and a lively social scene.

Aberdeen’s famous ‘Granite Mile’, Union Street, is the gateway to over 800 shops, restaurants and bars. Visitors can chill-out in lovely flower-filled parks – Aberdeen is 13 times winner of Britain in Bloom. Best of all, the city has its own golden sandy beach.

The city centre features the opulent Marischal College and the colonnaded Art Gallery with its fine collection, which have been preserved as museums. Union Street continues west to the cosmopolitan West End, where much of the city’s nightlife can be found. To the south, the harbour heaves with boats serving the fishing and oil industries, while north of the centre lies attractive Old Aberdeen, a village neighbourhood presided over by King’s College and St Machar Cathedral, and influenced by the large student population.  Enjoy a walk along Aberdeen’s long beach,  the esplanade development marks the city’s eastern border, only a mile or so from its centre.

Had enough of the city them head out of town to Royal Deeside and the Cairngorms National Park holiday home of the Royal Family. Enjoy the multitude of activities available from gentle walks to more strenuous Munro bagging, go for a bike ride or try horse riding or best of all just relax and enjoy the wonderful scenery.
