Dundee is famously known for the three J’s, Jute, Jam and Journalism. Today it is promoted as 'One City Many Discoveries”, in honour of the contributions that the University of Dundee and the University of Abertay have made to scientific developments. The name also reflects the amazing feats of Robert Falcon Scott’s Antarctic adventure in the ship called ‘RSS Discovery’. The RSS Discovery in now berthed in Dundee and not only acts as major tourist attraction but also as a venue for private functions.
Dundee is Scotland's only south facing city, giving it a claim to being Scotland's sunniest and warmest city.
Dundee’s city centre is a shopping sanctuary. The Overgate, a spectacular two storey curved glass wall wrapping itself around the City Churches creates one of the most enjoyable and relaxed shopping experiences you'll encounter. The Wellgate shopping centre has over 50 shops to choose and has everything you need, including affordable high street fashion. The centre even houses Dundee's Central Library. A more recent development, The City Quay, includes clothing stores, toy shops, a book shop and the Traesko furniture shop. It also houses Dominos Pizza and a Chinese Restaurant.
The tell tale signs of Dundee’s rich history are still visible from the Jute industry boom of the Victorian era. For those who are not familiar with Jute it is a strong plant fibre that is used in making ropes, sacks and cloth. Linen production gradually took over Dundee and the city was commonly known as the “juteopolis”. Jute production ceased due to high competition from overseas and Dundee suffered badly as a result. The Verdant Works is a restored 19th century jute mill and a living history museum Dundee’s long association with the Jute trade and is most definitely worth a visit. Jam, jelly or marmalade, whatever you want to call it we all love it. The story goes that it was Janet Keillor who discovered marmalade in the 1700’s when she was trying to find a use for bitter Seville oranges. Her recipe was developed by her son James Keilour who opened the now world famous Keillor factory for jams and marmalades. The third ‘J’ to Dundee’s history is ‘Journalism’. The publishing company D.C Thomspon is home of “The Beano”, “The Dandy” and “Dennis the Menace”. It was one of the largest employers in the city, second only to the public and leisure sector. It survived the recession despite having to make cuts to the workforce.
Dundee has become the hub of Scottish gaming industry with the University of Abertay international reputation for excellence in computer games education. Companies such as RealTimeWorlds, a games developer, developed titles such as Grand Theft Auto and Lemmings. The company recently went into administration and closure due to the recession.
