Dundee is easy to walk round, easy to explore and, crucially, easy to get to. Wherever you happen to be travelling from and however you choose to transport yourselves, you’ll be able to find a stress-free way of getting here. And once, you’ve arrived, all that’s left for you to do is soak up everything that the city has to offer.
By car, Dundee is accessible from all over the UK. It’s less than a two-hour drive from Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow, for example, and Manchester is around five hours from here. Longer journeys from London (8.5 hours) and Birmingham (6.25 hours) are relatively simple thanks to the UK’s motorway network. Dundee itself is on the A90 and A92, the latter of which will feed you into the city across the iconic Tay Bridge.
Dundee’s railway station is located right at the heart of the action, close to the new waterfront regeneration and just yards from the banks of the river. There are direct services to and from Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow, all of which are less than 90 minutes away. From London Kings Cross, the direct journey is around 6.5 hours.
The city’s international airport is located just 3km from the centre on the shore of the Firth of Tay. Direct flights are available from both Belfast and London City. If you like to stretch your legs after your flight, the airport is a pleasing 20-minute waterfront walk away from the middle of Dundee.
And if you prefer to arrive by coach, you’ll be impressed with the number of services into Dundee from towns and cities right across the UK. The city’s Seagate Bus Station is located in the centre, within walking distance of all the major attractions and a large number of excellent Dundee hotels and guesthouses.
However you choose to get here, just make sure you get here! We can’t wait to see you, and to show you everything that our wonderful city has to offer.
