Enjoy your next city break in Aberdeen, Scotland's third largest city. Aberdeen is a compact city with wide open spaces; in the morning walk along a mile long stretch of golden beach (you may even spot dolphins playing in the harbour mouth) and in the afternoon admire the sparkling granite architecture that we are so famous for. Step back in time in Aberdeen's old town as you visit the cobbled roads and historic buildings in Old Aberdeen, or stay in the heart of a bustling city with a vibrant foodie scene - including big names like Mackie's and BrewDog.
Please refer to the ‘Open for business’ icon at the top of listings to check which great visitor experiences are ready and waiting for you. And if you're heading outdoors, know the guidelines, do plan ahead, and be flexible if it's busy.
