CULTURAL HOTSPOT

Dundee was described as Britain’s “Coolest Little City” by GQ magazine. Traditionally famous for the three "Js" - jute, jam and journalism, today the city is a destination for culture, food, and art. V&A Dundee opened in 2018, and is Scotland’s first design museum and a ground-breaking centre for design innovation. It is the first building in Britain to be designed by Kengo Kuma, the renowned Japanese architect now designing the Tokyo 2020 Olympic stadium.
