Groupon’s Guide To Aberdeen
Known as “The silver city” or “The flower of Scotland”, Aberdeen is the third most populous city in the country, with a population estimated as being over 200,000 large. Sitting on the coast of the North Sea, between the rivers Dee and Don, the city is a ten-time Britain In Bloom winner, an annual award gave by The Royal Horticulture Society.
Once in the city, travellers will have plenty of visiting opportunities, from the historic Royal Deeside, the holiday home of the Royal family since the Victorian era, to St. Machar’s Cathedral, which is believed to occupy the site of a chapel built hundreds of years before Christ. Outdoorsy types will get lots of strolling opportunities in Cruickshank Botanic Gardens, an 11-acre garden complex, boasting over 2,500 labelled plants. Though a peaceful and quiet place during the day, Aberdeen features plenty of nightclubs and bars, where holidaymakers may try out local ales and fine wines.
