Head underground into an old street from 17th century Dundee and explore the vaults. Previously there has been limited access into one of the vaults, now we’ve had the area cleared out and added some safety features that let us visit five of these ancient vaults, hidden away below the streets for centuries.
We’ve added a few things for you to read and look at in the vaults too – so bring your reading glasses if you need them!
