Duthie Park

Potluri Road, Aberdeen, AB11 7TH

Duthie Park was donated to Aberdeen by Elizabeth Duthie way back in 1880, and opened its doors to the general public three years later. Its eye-catching bandstand, ponds, statues and fountains make it instantly-recognisable.

Visitors can take in the David Welch Winter Gardens – one of the largest indoor gardens in Europe. It is home to a number of exotic plants, such as Britain’s largest collection of cacti . . . and the world’s only talking cactus!
