What are the best things to do in Aberdeen?

Take a stroll back in time in Old Aberdeen

The leafy suburbs of Old Aberdeen provide you with the perfect blast from the past taken straight out of a period drama. Wind your way through the stunning cobbled streets and admire some of the most incredible architecture on offer. Here you’ll find St Machar’s Cathedral, and you can also immerse yourself in the academia at the University of Aberdeen and Kings College.

Discover the meaning of ‘fine dining’ at Eat on the Green

If you’re looking for a fine-dining experience that is unlike any other, you may stumble upon Eat on the Green. Overlooking the immaculately kept lawns of Udny Green, this restaurant is popular among the stars and famous people who visit Scotland.

Lose yourself in the maze at Hazlehead Park

If you’re looking to nestle yourself in nature, there’s no place better than Hazlehead Park. There’s over 180 hectares of land and plenty of picnic spots to choose from. This is also the home of Scotland’s oldest hedge-lined maze, so why not see if you can navigate your way through it.

Transport yourself to the tropics at the Winter Gardens

Sticking with the theme of gardens, why not visit the Winter Gardens. This gigantic place is kept warm year-round and boasts some of the world’s most rare and exotic plants. You’ll find that this is the perfect spot to warm up and escape the winter cold.

Explore the old railway line by bike

The old railway has been transformed into a path that takes you out of the city. If you’re looking for something more active, then hop on a bike and head over to the picturesque village of Banchory. Be sure to enjoy the long rolling hills and woodlands that surround this pathway.
