Rais­ing city breaks stakes

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Uk World Today -

THINK city break and places such as Ber­lin, Prague and Paris prob­a­bly spring to mind (see page 10).

But new hol­i­day homes planned for the heart of Dundee could be just the sort of ac­com­mo­da­tion peo­ple from other parts of the UK and Europe are look­ing for when they de­cide they want to get away from it all for two or three days.

Pro­pos­als have been tabled to trans­form an of­fice block into apart­ments as part of the on­go­ing drive to lure peo­ple to the city.

The fin­ished build­ing would of­fer a rooftop ter­race with panoramic views over Slessor Gar­dens to the River Tay.

And it would be within easy walk­ing dis­tance of the new V&A, Discovery Point, a clutch of other at­trac­tions and the city cen­tre’s many bars and restau­rants.

It seems to have all the in­gre­di­ents to give the more ob­vi­ous short break des­ti­na­tions a proper run for their money.
