I would not rush to visit Magdelen Green though the name has a really nice ring to it. It is just a basic little park but with good views of the Tay Rail Bridge, the Tay Estuary and Fife.

Always pop along to this, and sit on the bench and take the day in, it's so beautiful. Even in the middle of winter it's lovely all year long.

Magdalen Green is situated to the west of the city centre, with great views of The Tay Railway Bridge, an ideal place to watch the sun go down. The Bandstand is used in the summer and is also a favourite for wedding pictures.

Love this green. Grandchildren love it too. Overlooking the Tay with the bridge in sight. Quite breathtaking. Never noisy or crowded and just the place for an evening walk in the summer. Bandstand just right for wedding photos too.
