Situated on the north banks of the Tay Estuary, Dundee was once a major whaling port. Today, it is the fourth largest city in Scotland and has reinvented itself as a contemporary, cultural and artistic city, which also happens to be home to over 20,000 university students. With plenty of restaurants and superb shopping centres on offer, Dundee is popular throughout the year, attracting visitors who come to see the local attractions, including the statue of Desperate Dan in City Square. Because it’s so busy, parking in Dundee can present a problem unless you know where to go!
