Travel & Accommodation

Getting to Dundee

Dundee is easily reached by public transport – rail, bus and air options are all available in reaching the city. The rail and bus stations are all located in the city centre and the airport is only a five to ten minute taxi ride from the city centre. The Caird Hall is a five minute walk from Dundee rail station and ten minutes from the bus station.

There are numerous public car parks available nearby, charges will be applicable – details at Please do not drink and drive. The Scottish drink drive limit is just 22 microgrammes in 100ml of breath (the rest of the UK is 35 microgrammes). Dundee’s Low Emission Zone (LEZ) enforcement doesn’t start until 30 May 2024.

Buses and Taxis

Stagecoach and xplore Dundee are the two main operators in Dundee with a good network for travelling around the city centre and surrounding towns. Please remember that only Scottish concession passes are valid for discounted travel. The closest bus stops to the Caird Hall are located on Nethergate and Crichton Street, just one minute’s walk away.

For members wishing to explore the wider area, Stagecoach buses offer a wide and reliable service leaving from the bus station. In addition, Scottish Citylink has services across Scotland, Ember Buses (electric buses) provide services to Stirling, Kinross, Edinburgh and Glasgow, and FlixBus also goes to Aberdeen in addition to Glasgow, Edinburgh and stops south of the border.

Dundee City Council’s Bus Service Information


The main taxi rank is outside the city churches on Nethergate, as well as one at the railway station. There are numerous operators available – search online for “Dundee Taxis” for a selection of them.


CAMRA is unable to recommend any particular booking site or accommodation and advises all members to check cancellation policies and reviews before booking.  

There are several hotels, within a 5-10 minute walk of the Caird Hall, or a short bus or taxi ride away.

One of the Weekend Sponsors, Wetherspoons, has a hotel in Broughty Ferry – as part of their sponsorship deal, we have the following information to share with attendees:

Jolly’s Hotel, Broughty Ferry

The jewel in Dundee’s crown – Broughty Ferry has always been linked closely with Dundee as a place and resort, later as a haven for the wealthy and later still as a residence for commuters. This hotel is ideal for those who like the city-centre vibe, Dundee being the fourth largest city in Scotland, as well as being close to the beach. Here at Jolly’s Hotel, all 25 en suite rooms have Freeview television, tea- and coffee-making facilities, unlimited free Wi-Fi and digital temperature control. A warm and inviting pub forms part of the hotel, making Jolly’s Hotel a perfect stay for families, leisure or business. The hotel is attached to a Wetherspoon pub, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, including club deals (such as Curry Club® and Steak Club®) and a range of hot, soft and alcoholic drinks, all conveniently located for hotel guests to enjoy during their stay with us.
