Scotland's 4th-largest city is often overshadowed by its neighbours, but those in the know are making a beeline for what is, surely, one of the country's most fascinating places. It lies on the estuary of the Firth of Tay, just moments from Scotland's east coast. If you come to stay in a Dundee bed and breakfast, you'll find a city teeming with fascinating maritime museums, art galleries with works inspired by the Scottish coastline, along with a vibrant renovated waterfront with trendy eateries and bars. Its size means it's easily explored on foot and there's nothing better than ambling along the cobbled streets and elegant squares, admiring the architecture along the way. If you plan to visit in summer, be sure to book up your accommodation early as the packed calendar of outdoor events and festivities draws in the crowds.
While you could opt for one of city's hotels, why would you, when you'll likely pay a fraction of the cost and enjoy a homely atmosphere with friendly locals at one of the Dundee bed and breakfasts? Forget the drab B&Bs of the past – if you're looking for some serious comfort, Dundee has a variety of luxury properties that give 5-star hotels a run for their money. It doesn't matter whether you're coming on a family getaway or a romantic break with your partner, you'll always find the right Dundee bed and breakfast for you on Expedia, which lists every property, along with detailed descriptions and photos. All you need to do is search by date and budget and let Expedia do the hard work for you. Arranging your accommodation just got a whole lot easier. There are some magnificent B&Bs to choose from, like 18th-century stone-built detached houses, surrounded by well-manicured gardens, or boutique B&Bs with interiors and furnishings that look like they just jumped out of the pages of an interior designs magazine. Either way, you're always assured a comfortable break when you book your stay through Expedia.
All the guestrooms at bed and breakfasts in Dundee are unique, that's what makes them so special, but you can also expect them to come equipped with all the modern conveniences that you might find at home. There'll be a kettle for making tea and coffee, a flat-screen TV mounted on the wall and complimentary WiFi, so you can research what you're going to do while you're in the city. Expedia helps you search through all the facilities at Dundee bed and breakfasts, so if you're looking for features like free parking spots, ensuite bathrooms or pet-friendly B&Bs, you'll never have trouble finding them. Alternatively, you could opt for one of the family-sized rooms and bring all the kids on a historic getaway. Come daybreak, you can enjoy a proper start to the day with a full Scottish breakfast – with veggie options available, of course – or hearty bowls of porridge, cooked the right way. If you're looking for an entirely different type of British break, why not try the trendy coastal city of Brighton, instead?
Finding things to do near your Dundee bed and breakfast is never a problem. You could start by boarding the RRS Discovery, which was the last 3-masted wooden ship to be built in Britain. It was used by Scott and Shackleton on their voyage to the Antarctic. If you have an interest in the arts, don't miss the McManus Galleries, which house a seriously impressive collection of works from across the ages in a Gothic Revival-style building. Alternatively, you can score some tickets for one of the musicals or plays at the Dundee Repertory Theatre or one of the concerts at Caird Hall. Then there's the 1930s Mills Observatory, which has planetarium shows, astronomical displays and more.
