Dundee has plenty of places to see and visit whether you are looking for a family day out, want to visit one of the annual events, or want to learn more about the city's history with its monuments and landmarks, its maritime heritage, the arrival of jute or the city's new scientific and design excellence.  





Cox's Stack

Cox's Stack is an 85m (282 ft) high chimney in the Lochee area of the city and one of the remaining relics of Dundee's once buoyant jute industry. It was constructed in 1866 and formed part of the Cox Brothers' Camperdown Works, one of the largest jute factories of its time. Modelled on an Italian campanile, the Stack was designed by local architect James MacLaren.

The Magdalen Green Band Stand

The bandstand was built in 1890 and is an iconic Dundee image, immortalised by the paintings of James McIntosh Patrick (1907-1998).

You can just catch the Tay Rail Bridge to the left of the bandstand and the distant Fife skyline.

The ornate bandstand plays host to Sunday performances by brass bands during the summer months.
