The Granite City, The Flower of Scotland, The Silver City by the Golden Sands. Aberdeen wears its titles with pride. With sparkling granite buildings, the cosmopolitan city has one of Scotland’s most enchanting skylines, while the historical old town has an air of time gone by. A thriving cultural calendar combined with excellent restaurants and attractions make Aberdeen the perfect choice for a city break.
With beautiful buildings, winding streets and walled gardens, no visit to Scotland’s third largest city is complete without dropping by the old town. Don’t miss the imposing King’s College, the centre of Aberdeen University, stunning St Machar‘s Cathedral or a wander along the cobbled High Street.
Having scooped first place in the Britain in Bloom competition a record 11 times, this city has plenty of floral pulling power. It is renowned for its public gardens and has more than 6,000 acres of parkland. Top attractions include the extensive Winter Gardens at Duthie Park; the largest covered display in Europe and the Queen Mother Rose Garden at Hazlehead Park.
The capital of the Grampian Highlands is famous for its granite buildings, which are said to sparkle after rain. Among the most impressive are Marishal College, His Majesty’s Theatre and the stunning St Machar’s Cathedral. The city’s distinctive silver shimmer is thanks to architects, Archibald Simpson and John Smith, who built many of the fine neo-classical buildings out of the native stone.
