ABERDEEN TRAVEL GUIDE
Moving from London to Aberdeen was not easy for me; being used to pop in Chelsea for Saturday brunches with my girlfriends and get into a last minute flight from either London airport, were a few of the things that had me concerned.
They say never judge a gift by its wrapping and living 3 years now in Aberdeen I fully believe it. Aberdeen is now my home, I have a fabulous job, even more fabulous friends and have no regrets for moving.
I often get asked what are the things someone should see in Aberdeen so here is my Aberdeen Travel Guide (in no particular order). You’d be surprised how many things you can do!
What to see in Aberdeen:
I am blessed to work in these historic buildings and have lunch breaks in the famous Cruickshank Botanical gardens. Situated in Old Aberdeen, the campus is certainly a top destination when visiting the Granite City.
Some facts you should know about the University:
-It is the Scotland’s third oldest University and the fifth oldest University in the English speaking world!
-It is constantly ranked among the top 1% of the world’s top Universities.
-Aberdeen is the safests Scotland’s University city.
-The University library is in top 10 for “spell-binding University libraries in the world” as reported by The Independent.
A dream during a sunny day!

What to do:
If you are into the great outdoors and love a bit of adrenaline in your blood stream then Aberdeen is the place to be. Go Ape at Crathes castle and hiking the top of Mither Tap are a few of the things to do when in the area. Find out more here and get ready for some serious action!
To be completely fair Aberdeen is not everyone’s cup of tea, but if you give yourself the time to explore then you will see that it has a lot to offer. Having a car helps loads but public transportation is equally good if you want to travel in the countryside.
