Aberdeen Maritime Museum
To discover more about Aberdeen’s seafaring history, the award-winning Aberdeen Maritime Museum is well worth a visit. Walking through the exhibits you’ll learn all about the region’s oil industry, and how boats tackle the elements out on the North Sea. Once you’ve had a good look around, you can enjoy a coffee and something to eat at the on-site cafe.
We recommend: getting a quiz sheet from reception to keep the kids entertained, if you’re visiting with a young family
The Gordon Highlanders Museum
At this popular museum you’ll find out all about the Gordon Highlanders Army Regiment, with exhibits on the French Revolution, the Boer Wars, the First and Second World Wars and more. Tours are available if you want to learn even more from the knowledgeable guides.
We recommend: visiting the museum cafe if you’re in need of a pit stop
Duthie Park Winter Gardens
Visit one of the biggest indoor gardens in Europe, Duthie Park Winter Gardens, where you’ll find rare plants, exotic flowers and the biggest collection of succulents and cacti in Britain. Take a walk along the Corridor of Perfumes and experience a different climate in the Tropical and Arid House before going to see the boating ponds and children’s play areas.
We recommend: taking the kids to see Spike the talking cactus!
Whether the sun is shining or the winds are blowing, there’s nothing quite like a walk along Balmedie Beach during your stay in Aberdeen. Explore the dunes and blow away the cobwebs as you wander along the endless stretch of sand, and make sure you take a camera.
We recommend: wrapping up warm because after all, this is Scotland, and the weather can be rather nippy and changeable
Lined with granite buildings, Union Street stretches for an entire mile through the city and is home to a huge range of shops, from designer brands to high street stores and everything in between. If you get hungry, there are plenty of restaurants to choose from too.
We recommend: walking as far as the quirky West End area of the city, where you’ll find lots of great independent boutiques
If you need a break from the hustle and bustle of Union Street, take a wander through Old Aberdeen. Located to the north of the city centre, it’s got everything from cobbled streets to a cathedral, botanic gardens and the King’s Museum.
We recommend: continuing north to Seaton Park, a huge green space along the River Don
His Majesty’s Theatre
For evening entertainment, nothing beats watching a show at His Majesty’s Theatre. Just 10 minutes away from our Aberdeen hotel on foot, the theatre is considered one of the most beautiful in the UK. Whether you’re seeing a musical, enjoying some light-hearted comedy or listening to live music, His Majesty’s Theatre is the perfect place to unwind in the evening.
We recommend: looking out for the statue of Scottish hero William Wallace on your way to the theatre Cowdray Hall If you want to experience incredible acoustics inside a breathtaking building, Cowdray Hall is one of Aberdeen’s most popular concert venues, and only 8 minutes away from Jurys Inn Aberdeen on foot. If you have the chance, make sure you pop in to watch one of the free lunchtime concerts.
We recommend: checking the website before you visit, as Cowdray Hall is closed until late 2017 for refurbishments
If you’re staying for a few days or more, you might like to explore beyond the city itself. And with so many beautiful places to see, we wouldn’t blame you for venturing outside of Aberdeen.
There are lots of great attractions just a short drive or bus journey from our Aberdeen hotel, including:
