Parks and gardens
Johnston gardens – This tranquil garden is probably more reminenist of a garden you would find in Japan, rather than the coast of Scotland. Filled with sparkling streams, waterfalls, and a rustic bridge, it is a charming place to explore.
Seaton park – North of the city centre, neighbouring the River Don and St Machar's Cathedral, this is one of the city's most popular parks. Its Cathedral Walk is always a splendid site, featuring delightful flower displays. If you follow the river bank from the park, you'll arrive at the famous medieval crossing, Brig o'Balgownie.
Duthie park and David Welch Winter gardens – Spread over 44 acres of land, Duthie Park is large enough for everyone to find their own patch of peace and quiet. Even if you're visiting the city during a chillier time of year, the indoor Winter Gardens will still be in bloom with a range of exotic plants.
His Majesty's Theatre – According to Billy Connolly, the theatre's auditorium is like “playing a gig inside a wedding cake!” A national treasure and architectural triumph, His Majesty's Theatre is one of only two so named in the world. The venue's design is as awe-inspiring as the West End shows, operas and ballets performed here.
Lemon Tree – An eclectic venue presenting a little bit of everything, from alternative music to experimental performance art. They support an up-and-coming range of young artists and house boundary-pushing Artist in Residence programmes.
The Tivoli Theatre – Built in 1872, closed in 1997 and restored through a £1.2 million renovation project, the historic theatre is an elegant and eye catching venue. It has hosted some of the world's best-known performers, like Charlie Chaplin and Stan Laurel, and is still following that same tradition.

Doric describes the dialect of language spoken in Aberdeen and North East Scotland, highlighting the distinct features of the regional speech, while echoing the way of life in the area.
The poet Allan Ramsay first used the term Doric as alternative name for the Scots language. It compared the Scots speech to the language of the ancient Grecian working class.
Though it is declining, and facing linguistic competition with Gaelic, efforts are being made in Aberdeenshire to preserve it.
