Dundee offers an exceptional quality of life with the availability of good quality, affordable housing, excellent education and healthcare facilities, and access to a comprehensive range of sporting and leisure facilities. Dundee’s position offers an excellent gateway to the Angus & Perthshire glens, with excellent walking trails in the summer and snow sports in the winter. With an abundance of green space and blue flag beaches, Dundee can offer residents and visitors a city lifestyle with a relaxing country feel.
The cost of living in Dundee is 19.2% cheaper than the rest of the UK on average. The city benefits from an excellent business infrastructure, which is currently going through a period of significant economic growth as the city welcomes the new Dundee Waterfront development project, including the new V&A at Dundee.
Dundee’s artistic and cultural renaissance is progressing hand in hand with its economic regeneration. The city’s traditions in literature, drama and art have flourished with the advent of the hugely successful Dundee Contemporary Arts centre (DCA) and Dundee Rep Theatre. These institutions, and a thriving music scene, have contributed greatly to a renewed energy and vibrancy in the city’s cultural life. The city’s growing centre offers a range of eateries, boutique galleries and visitor attractions which reflect the international influence within the city, which houses over 58 nationalities in the life science industry alone.
