Wednesday 7th September @ 5.45pm – Dark Dundee Walking Tour

CILIPS Tayside invite you to a waterfront walking tour, hosted by Dark Dundee! Sails, Tales & Whales tells the tales of the sailors and scallywags of Dundee’s once-bustling port. Dundee’s waterfront area used to be harbours and shipyards that were flooded with sailors seeking to set sail and make their fortunes – and even more seeking to make trouble. From fights between sailors and locals to spies and subterfuge, the docks of Dundee could be a very dangerous place to be….

Starting at Discovery Point at 5.45pm, the tour lasts around an hour and fifteen minutes and ends at City Quay. This is a private tour organised specially for CILIPS members and their colleagues and there are 20 spaces available – please contact CILIPS Tayside Secretary Neil Paterson on Neil.Paterson@leisureandculturedundee.com to book your place now.

As the tour ends at City Quay, participants are invited to head over to Taza for tea at 7pm – please indicate when booking if you would like to join for both walk and dinner or just walk, so we know how big a table to book!

PS remember to dress for the weather….
