Dundee has been named the UK's first City of Design by the United Nations. The title recognises the design innovations Dundee has contributed to the world, including aspirin, biomedical research which has led to hundreds of new cancer drugs, comics including the Beano and Dandy, orange marmalade, and video games including Lemmings and Grand Theft Auto.

 

The jewel in Dundee's new crown is Scotland's first design museum, the V&A which boasts two galleries, one charting Scotland's design past and another for temporary exhibitions. The breathtaking building, inspired by Scotland's cliffs is worth a visit alone set in the stunning waterfront setting.
