I loved the excursions, lessons, the friendly staff and even the weather. Everything was just perfect. Thanks a lot!Karin Buchsteiner, Germany
Aberdeen is a city that looks and feels quite different. Not just on a summer’s evening, when you can walk the main street in daylight at 11pm. Not just because that same main street – the mile-long Union Street – is lined with classic granite buildings that help make this “one of the most architecturally distinctive cities in Europe”*
But mainly because this isn’t just a city by the sea, it’s a city of the sea. A city where ships dock right up against the city-centre streets. Where locals paddle-board and surf off the city beach. And golden sands stretch for miles – towards vast dunes to the north and high cliffs to the south.
This is also a city with not one but two Old Towns: Old Aberdeen, with its cobbled streets and 15th century fortified cathedral, home to the city ’s first university. And Footdee – a quirky old fishing village at the east end of the harbour.
And though it is steeped in history, Aberdeen is a cosmopolitan and connected place – with people working and studying here from across the world. Up to now, it’s a city that’s been mostly off the tourist map but now it’s ready … and waiting to be explored.
