Event Location

Famed for its sparkling architecture, Aberdeen is lined with classic granite buildings as well as an abundance of museums, galleries, parks, and gardens. The city is cosmopolitan with plenty of exciting festivals and events happening all year-round creating a distinct cultural offering.

With its own beach nestled only a stones through from the city centre, ships dock in the working harbour and regularly spotted are the dolphins that leap at the harbour mouth.

Becoming increasingly well known for its delectable food and drink offering, Aberdeen is a fantastic place to try local produce. From stylish to traditional bars, fine dining restaurants and bistros, there’s no shortage of places to sample local craft beers, fresh seafood, Aberdeen Angus Beef and of course, their famous whisky.
