Discover Aberdeen

There will be many unique activities to captivate you in the city of Aberdeen where majestic landscapes meet the sea, & a flourishing city boasts beautiful architecture and cultural gems. Tour Old Aberdeen (c. 1891), now encapsulated by the modern city.

Visit the Aberdeen Maritime Museum which tells the story of the city’s long relationship with the Sea. The Maritime Museum houses a unique collection       covering shipbuilding, fast sailing ships, fishing and port history.

Wander through the Aberdeen Art Gallery, one of the city’s most popular tourist attractions. A particularly attractive example of late 19th century architecture, it houses one of the finest art collections in Britain with paintings, sculpture and graphics from the 15th century to the present day.
