Where the Dee and Don rivers meet the North Sea, you will find the port city of Aberdeen. Sometimes referred to as the ‘Granite City’, this part of northeast Scotland it’s an eclectic, vibrant and inspiring place for a spa break getaway.
Much of Aberdeen’s heritage stems from its fishing and shipping industries, as well as its locally quarried granite stone. However, it also has a lively cultural scene and plenty of things to see and do. As the third largest city in Scotland, it has a buzzing nightlife and plenty of restaurants, bars and cafes to visit.
The Aberdeen Gin Distillery and Gin School are woven into the fabric of the city - located in a historic railway arch, and providing a fun (and informative) activity to enjoy with friends. The Johnston Gardens give you an award-winning taste of horticulture and Japanese culture. Or you can hop aboard a cruise from Aberdeen harbour for the chance to spot dolphins and minke whales basking off the coast. A stroll through the leafy pathways of Seaton Park is a good way to recharge your batteries, or explore the winding streets of Old Aberdeen for architectural inspiration and quaint coffee shops.
Spas in Aberdeen provide the perfect environment for weekend long stays or a little daytime pampering after a day of exploration. The contemporary Devona Spa is ideal for an afternoon of bliss, PURE Spa & Beauty at Union Square Aberdeen is perfect for preparing for an evening out, and Sandman Signature Aberdeen Hotel is a wonderful place to stay for a few days.
