99 Things to see & do in Dundee

With the help of people who live in the city and love it, we produce an annual crowdsourced 99 Things to See and Do in Dundee Guide. Local people share the truly unmissable places in Dundee with us which we include in the guide.

With people increasingly coming into the city to explore, we hope they can find places and spaces with this guide, and more this, it is created through crowdsourcing with the people of Dundee, for the people of Dundee. Even if you’ve been in the city for a long time, we hope this will help you explore corners that you might have missed and support the many local/independent pockets of creativity across the city.

We produced this guide before lockdown, and hope to crowdsource another guide very soon!

The guide also indicates where locations are accessible and have been reviewed on Euan’s Guide – the disabled access review website.

We created the city’s first crowdsourced guide back in 2012 and the 2019 edition was the fifth update – thanks goes to Dundee, One City Many Discoveries, Dundee City of Design and V&A Dundee for supporting the production of the guide. if you would like to support the production of additional or future copies then we’d love to hear from you! Thanks also to I Love Grids for the design and James Gemmill for the map illustration.

We regularly share content related to it through #DundeeGuide across social media. We’d love to hear about your favourite places on the map!

Spaces of Dundee


Cultural Spaces & Projects

Whether you’re new to the city or just want to explore here’s a list of all of Dundee’s brilliant cultural spaces.


Heritage Spaces

For anyone new to any city, it can be tricky to know where to go and what support is around. That’s why we have put together this guide to help you find your feet.


Dundee’s Creative Hubs

These important spaces, often led by passionate and committed small groups of individuals, have really helped contribute to the transformation of Dundee’s cultural identity over the last few years.

UNESCO City of Design Dundee

Dundee became the UK’s only UNESCO City of Design in December 2014, joining UNESCO’s Creative Cities Network of global design cities including Seoul, Kobe, Montréal, Shenzhen, Berlin, Buenos Aires, Helsinki, Bilbao and more. A prestigious award that recognises the huge contribution the city has made to design worldwide; and like other cities we have our challenges, but the City of Design status is something which Dundee can build on and do even greater things.
