Dundee has a vast amount of culture and history which you can explore.

Within easy walking distance of the hotel is the 5 star Discovery Point visitor centre, home of the century-old research ship RRS Discovery, which Captain Scott used for his antarctic explorations. More On The Discovery Point website.

Another historic wooden ship worth a visit is the 46-gun H.M. Frigate UNICORN, built  in 1824. Berthed at the Victoria Dock close to the City Quay shopping centre, you can combine sightseeing and shopping with ease. More on The Frigate Unicorn website.
