Dundee - one of the hottest cities in the world right now

Dundee is Scotland’s fourth largest city and is set in a stunning location at the mouth of the River Tay on the east coast of Scotland. The city is located approximately 22 miles east of Perth and 14 miles north of St Andrews and benefits from a resident population in the order of 148,000 persons and a catchment population in excess of 640,000 within a 60 minute drive time.

Dundee benefits from having a main rail station on the UK East Coast Line which has a passenger footfall of approximately 1.8 million each year. The city also has an excellent motorway network, regional airport and is a significant cruise ship destination.

The Earl Grey Building forms part of the extensive £1 billion transformation of Dundee Waterfront which comprises approximately 240 hectares of development land stretching 8km alongside the River Tay together with the V&A Dundee, an international centre for design for Scotland and the first ever design museum to be built in the UK outside London. The V&A Dundee is housed in a world-class building at the heart of the Dundee Central Waterfront area and opened in September 2018.
