Dundee, Scotland

Introduction to Dundee, Scotland

Dundee has rich and varied heritage that includes children's comics, marmalade, jute and polar exploration.

Dundee has rich and varied heritage that includes children's comics, marmalade, jute and polar exploration. City Square is overlooked by a bronze statue of Desperate Dan, the much-loved character from The Dandy comic, published in the city for over 70 years. Dundee Marmalade is still enjoyed all over the world, although to find out what made the city rich, visit the Verdant Works museum. This restored jute mill has working machines and interactive displays telling the rise - and fall - of the product used in everything from ropes to sacking. At Discovery Point, you can see the restored Royal Research Ship Discovery, built in Dundee in 1900: the Visitor Centre has a vivid exhibition about polar exploration.
