Out and About in Aberdeen

Are you in or planning a trip to Aberdeen and have no idea where to visit?
Following the success of Tech Fest the city has attracted much interest for visitors to Scotland.
Here we have searched around and listed 5 places to visit in Aberdeen.
Pitmedden Garden & Museum of Farming Life.
Admission to Pitmedden Garden is is £6 for an adult ticket, family ticket is £15.50, 1 Parent ticket is £10.50 and concession is just £5, which are very reasonable considering the size of the gardens. As the name suggests it’s a huge garden displaying a huge array of colours and smells. If you are into gardening then this place might be a great place to draw some inspiration for your own garden.
Continuing with the theme of gardens ‘Duthie Park Winter Gardens’ is the most visited place in Aberdeen by tourists. Unlike Pitmedden Gardens, these are covered and therefore are open throughout the year. Home to a huge amount of cacti (over 600 different species), they also houses bananas and ferns - exotic plants in an otherwise quite non-exotic location. Again, it’s a great place to visit if you want some inspiration for gardening. Unlike the ‘Pitmedden Garden & Museum of Farming Life’, Duthie is free all year round.
Keen on golf? Why not pay a visit to the ‘Royal Aberdeen Golf Club’. It is one of the oldest golf clubs in the world (coming in at sixth) and many famous golf players have played there. Please note, this course is not for the beginner, (its website claims it ‘tests the better golfer due to the ‘variable conditions the links can throw at you’). Visit their website for more information on whether the course is suitable for you. The prices are quite high with the cheapest courses starting at £60 a round.
His Majesty’s Theatre, Aberdeen
For the more cultured among you, our 4th recommendation is ‘His Majesty’s Theatre’.

With over 1400 seats it is the largest theatre in North-East Scotland with many very popular performances, including the Aberdeen International Youth Festival. Provided something good is on this is a worthy place to visit. Prices do vary based on performances but are usually quite reasonable.

Our final recommended place to visit is the ‘Aberdeen Maritime Museum’. From Industries such as the Fishing Industry (kick-started in the 20th Century) through to the present day oil industry, you’ll find a wealth of information the culture and industries that have turned Aberdeen into the place it is today. Entrance to this museum is completely free.
Explore the "Granite City" from the Park Inn Aberdeen Hotel
Enviably situated in the centre of the "Granite City," the newly opened Park Inn hotel in Aberdeen creates the perfect home base for exploring nearby attractions such as the Grampian Whisky and Castle Trail.
So, all in all there is a lot to do in Aberdeen and therefore regardless of your interests you will be able to find something to do in this great Scottish city.
