Trains to Dundee overlook the distant Kingdom of Fife and glide into the city along Scotland’s longest river, the River Tay, famous for its popular wildlife and watersports. Scotland’s fourth-largest city is equally as fascinating.

Built in 1878 as part of the Tay Rail Bridge project, Dundee station is located in the south end of Camperdown tunnel, which passes beneath the town's former dockyard. Visitors should take the time to visit the Discovery Point Visitor Centre over the river and marvel at Captain Scott’s famous Antarctic expedition ship, RRS Discovery, and dip into the city’s famous seafaring history. Also, a good choice for visitors is the glass-fronted Overgate shopping centre and Dundee Contemporary Arts Centre – both five minutes’ walk from the station.
