Lonely Planet Guide
Welcome to one of the most dynamic, prosperous and beautiful regions of the UK. The city of Aberdeen truly has something for everyone - from the bustling city centre of Europe's energy capital to the superb countryside and coastline in an area rich in historic and natural interest.
Students describe Aberdeen as having an unrivalled social scene, which caters for all tastes in arts, culture, leisure and entertainment. Communication and travel links are excellent, which means getting around the rest of Scotland and the UK is easy.
The City of Aberdeen is an attractive, prosperous and friendly community of 250,000 people. Aberdeen is Scotland's third largest city and the cultural centre of the north-east of Scotland. Big enough for the "big city" experience, student friendly Aberdeen is compact enough to make it easy to find your way around and make friends. In addition, it is a clean, well-kept, safe and friendly place to live. Bustling by day and lively by night, Aberdeen is a centre for industry, research, learning and life.
