Aberdeen is a lively city any time of the year, with plenty of alluring museums and attractions open to visit. July and August will see the peak tourist traffic, but this is also among the warmest seasons. Generally, you'll find the period from May to September to be the most rewarding in terms of weather. Although the city itself sees year-round attractions, the surrounding castles and estates have reduced seasonal hours, particularly in winter. Christmas does see excellent attractions, theatre performances and illuminations, but remember to wrap up warm against the chilling maritime winds. The surrounding countryside and neighbouring Highlands become extremely beautiful in autumn, but weather can be fickle.
Aberdeen has much to offer all sorts of traveller. Many delightful restaurants are ideal for romantic nights in the city. You can also take peaceful strolls in the charming Duthie Park Winter Gardens and Johnston Gardens. For families, you’ll find a wealth of star attractions like the city’s leading Maritime Museum, as well as falconry and deer centres nearby. It's also worth looking up the city’s performance programme at His Majesty’s Theatre for fun nights out with friends and family. As for the nightlife, expect bustling pubs and vibrant bars, especially around Guild Street and Langstane Place. What's more, adventure seekers can explore the country's best hiking trails in the Highlands and Cairngorms.
