Dundee's new V & A

Subrosa has posted today about the plans to build a branch of the V & A near to the Discovery in Dundee.

Dundee is a town with a very unfair reputation in some circles. In fact, it has one of Britain's finest theatre companies at the Rep, the McManus Gallery is well worth visiting, and there's the DCA. The view from the Law is fantastic, and Camperdown Park is a joy. It is home to musicians from The View to Michael Marra, let alone the friends of this blog's son - The Hazey Janes. Dundee has a fine collection of unspoilt pubs, and I recommend The Phoenix, The Speedwell (Mennie's), and The Fishermans Tavern as three of the finest pubs in Britain.

Dundee is great - go and see.

  1. Well done for promoting Dundee Richard. I have to admit it really does cover the arts with gusto and distinction.

    I don't know about the pubs though - I'll take your word for it!
