Day Life – Doon the Toon

Shopping in Dundee City Centre

There is so much you can do to entertain yourself or the family and still be left wanting more when it comes to a wee trip ‘doon the toon.’ It is so easy for us Dundonians to wander through the centre and take so many things for granted.

Al fresco dining in DundeeWe have the Dundee Rep Theatre, the Dundee Contemporary Arts Centre,the McManus Galleries, Verdant Works, Science Centre (Sensation), Discovery Point and Olympia Leisure Centre to keep the family occupied and then when you are finished you can spill out onto the streets and eat and drink at a number of quality cafes, bistros and pubs.

Then when you are refuelled you are ready to wander into the wonderful array of shops and salons that are available on every street from the Perth Road to the Wellgate. Then spoilt for choice you can spend more time in any of three shopping centres all within easy walking distance – Wellgate Centre, Keillor Centre and Overgate centre. On top of that you can easily wander west up the Nethergate and Westport to check out some of the wee boutiques or alternatively drift east into the City Quay and Gallagher retail park. In the mood for a bit of positive relaxation? Well feel free to settle into any number of quality bars or alternatively treat yourself to some hair and beauty therapy at one of the many salons spread all around the West End and City Centre. If you are feeling really optimistic you can even chance your luck at the bingo!

Dundee is an amazing place to spend the day so next time you wander around your beloved town be that wee bit more thankful that what we have is truly wonderful and easily accessible to all.
