The Dundee Dome provides a rare chance to admire a 360 view of the city
— and Art Night provides a unique opportunity to take in this epic vista at
night when you can watch the sun set and the city lights begin to twinkle. The
Dundee Dome is also home to GAIA by British artist Luke Jerram, giving visitors
a unique perspective on our precious planet.
Admission is free with a drink purchased from the bar before ascending to the
Dome. Booking is essential for all (except babes in arms under a year). Places are
limited to 12 people per 30-minute interval.

Plan your visit:
By road, Discovery Point is on Riverside Drive, just off the northbound slip road of the Tay Road Bridge. All other entry routes should follow signs for ‘city centre’, but Discovery Point is clearly signposted throughout the city. Enter postcode DD1 4XA in your sat nav.
By rail, Dundee is on the main East Coast line, and the railway station is directly opposite Discovery Point.
By bus, Most buses from Fife stop at Greenmarket, which is just at the side of the railway station, so only a few minutes walk to Discovery Point. If you are coming from Forfar, Discovery Point is a short walk from the High Street. All buses from Perth, Blairgowrie and Coupar Angus stop at Debenhams, outside the Overgate shopping centre. Discovery Point is just minutes away from any city centre bus stop. In the summer season, you can use the Dundee Explore tour bus to get dropped off directly at Discovery Point. See the Dundee Xplore bus route map for more information about local transport.
Car Parking There is a short-stay pay and display car park adjacent to Discovery Point. For other parking, you can use the Greenmarket multi-storey car park (sat nav DD1 4QB), or either the Gellatly street car park (sat nav DD1 3RB) or the Olympia car park (sat nav DD1 3JU) for the closest EV charging points see map here. By Bike, Just outside Discovery Point, you can find Embark Electric bike hire point and a regular bike rack.
