Keep teens entertained in Dundee

The City of Discovery is one of the coolest places in the world – if you don’t believe us, just ask National Geographic who named it on their Cool List 2019. That being said, it might be difficult to convince your teens that Dundee’s a cool place to hang out based on just that alone. We know that teenagers are notoriously hard to impress so we’ve put together our list of top things to do with them this summer. From exciting water sports to videogames, there’s so much to do in this coastal city that’ll impress all ages. Read on for the ultimate teens’ summer itinerary and book your dynamic stay in Dundee now.

V&A Videogames: Design/Play/Disrupt

Videogames: Design/Play/Disrupt is the coolest new exhibit to hit the V&A Dundee. As the name suggests, it explores the design behind videogames, how they’re played, and the disruption they cause. Being home to Grand Theft Auto and the world’s first degree in Computer Games Technology at Abertay University, Dundee knows a thing or two about videogames, so it was only fitting that this dynamic exhibit was brought to the city. The exhibition features modern designs as well as old-school arcade games you can actually play – the ‘no touching’ rule doesn’t apply in this museum exhibit! Videogames: Design/Play/Disrupt is interactive and brilliant and is a sure-fire way to keep teens amused this summer. Book our ‘Game on, Dundee‘ package now to get tickets to this exciting exhibit plus a dreamy overnight stay at our Apex City Quay Hotel & Spa.

Afternoon Tea at Apex City Quay Hotel

What better way to treat your teens than by spoiling them with a delicious afternoon tea at our Dundee hotel? Sure to impress even the fussiest of eaters, our afternoon tea is perfect for enjoying some light bites with the family before you embark on a day of adventure. Indulge in sandwiches, sweet treats and tea (of course). And if you join us during Wimbledon (1 – 14 July), we’re giving our Afternoon Tea a tennis inspired makeover, complete with strawberries and cream and fizz for the adults.

Camperdown Wildlife Centre

Just 15 minutes from Dundee, you can spend the day being at one with the animals at Camperdown Wildlife Centre. Camperdown is home to a variety of different animals including bears, birds and even horses. The wildlife centre states that the research they carry out is driven by their desire to gather knowledge that benefits the conservation of threatened species. Why not go along with the full family and see what new animals you can discover whilst aiding their research? We guarantee it’ll be a great day out for all ages.

Foxlake Dundee

Situated just outside our Dundee hotel, Foxlake Dundee offers a variety of fun water sports that teens will love! From wake boarding and paddle boarding to their inflatable obstacle course ‘Aqua Park’, teenagers (and adults) will have a blast at this adventure-filled summer hot spot. After you’ve tired yourself out with all the action, retreat to our Apex City Quay Hotel & Spa for a dreamy night’s sleep – you’ll need it after all that fun!

Dundee Science Centre

If you’ve got a teen that’s at all into science, you’ll want to pay a trip to Dundee Science Centre. Full of exciting exhibitions and science fun, they’ll be kept amused for hours in this dynamic museum. What’s more, their new show ‘Mars Odyssey’ opens on 1 July 2019 and is a must-see for any space enthusiasts out there. Find out more about the show here.

Avertical World

Avertical World Climbing Centre is an indoor climbing centre in Dundee that’s perfect for teenagers and adults alike. If you’ve got a particularly active teen, this is one activity that’s bound to tire them out and keep them entertained during the summer months. Get active as a family and challenge yourself to bouldering or roped climbing in the centre’s 10 metre tall climbing wall if you’re brave. It’s one activity your teens will be talking about until they go back to school.
