    The Category A-listed Caird Hall Dundee is the focal point of Dundee City Square and is one of the region’s most iconic buildings. Construction started in 1914 when the first foundation stones were laid by King George V and Queen Mary, and the doors were opened to the public in 1923. Since then, this concert hall has hosted acts such as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Kasabian, and Arctic Monkeys.

    The classic architectural style of the Caird Hall Dundee makes its exterior just as impressive as its interior. Head over in the evening to see the grand entrance columns illuminated in shades of purple and pink.

    The Dundee Law is a hill with a war memorial located at the summit, which rises to a height of 570 ft, making it the highest point in Dundee. From here, you can admire sweeping views of the city skyline and the River Tay. On certain days, such as Armistice Day, a large flame is ignited at the top of the memorial, making it visible from almost anywhere in Dundee.

    If you’d rather not hike up the hill, you can easily reach the summit by car or bus. During the construction of the memorial, artefacts from the Iron Age as well as Roman pottery were discovered, which you can see on display at The McManus Art Gallery & Museum.

    Established in 1564, The Howff is a Category A-listed graveyard that’s home to one of the most impressive collections of tombstones in Scotland.
