Aberdeen’s Glorious Gardens and Great Gigs
These lush gardens are full of colour. The beloved floral crest featuring the city’s coat of arms takes pride of place, while new floral displays and themes appear each year.
The layout of the gardens provide an outstanding location for outdoor festivals, concerts and even New Year celebrations.
If it’s culture you’re after, Aberdeen has a range of top arts venues, offering everything from music, dance and theatre to spoken word, comedy and performance art. The Lemon Tree welcomes up-and-coming acts, while the Music Hall focuses on big names, whether home-grown or international stars.
Union Terrace Gardens is also surrounded by some of Aberdeen’s most magnificent architecture, including the opulent His Majesty’s Theatre. Aberdeen Art Gallery and Marischal College are also fine examples of the architectural grandeur this city is known for.
