is the only UNESCO Creative City of Design in the UK and Dundee sits on the banks of the River Tay in an idyllic south-facing location on the east coast of Scotland. Houses hug the side of the Law, the extinct volcano in the heart of the city. From the top you’ll see two elegant bridges reaching over the Tay, and beyond that, beautiful countryside as far as the eye can see. Back on ground level, you can explore our compact city centre by foot or bike. Creativity and innovation are in our blood, with Dundee being the birth-place of the Scottish video games industry and worldwide favourite, Grand Theft Auto. The V&A Dundee is further testament to this. Designed by Kengo Kuma, this innovative space provides a new centre of design for Scotland and the world.
