Discovery Point

& RRS Discovery

Overview

Its stunning riverside location alone makes Discovery Point an ideal venue for conferences, meetings and seminars if you want to inspire your staff or clients. But there's more to Discovery Point than the views it commands over the River Tay. The keen sense of history throughout the venue contrasts and combines with the latest technology, to offer you the best of both worlds. The excellent facilities combined with high standards of customer care have seen Discovery Point build up a reputation as a focal point for enterprising businesses from all sectors of industry.

RRS Discovery, built in Dundee over 100 years ago specifically for scientific research into polar regions, took Captain Scott and his crew on his first expedition to Antarctica in 1901-1904 and stands proud today as an iconic corporate venue. Dundee Heritage Trust is the charity which manages Discovery Point & RRS Discovery and is responsible for the guardianship, preservation, and portrayal of Dundee's heritage in ways that educate, inspire and enlighten current and future generations.

Reviews

PDTSMS2
Paul Donaldson TISA Safe Maintenance Seminar 2012
January 2012

"On behalf of Tayside Integrated Safety Association and the Scottish Chamber of Safety, I would like to sincerely thank the staff at Discovery Point for what can only be described as excellent service. Our event changed shape several times, with the most significant change being to increase our numbers by 50%. The conference staff were always accommodating, ensuring our event went very well. All of our delegates remarked on the smooth running and the excellent food provided. I would highly recommend the venue and hope to return with our event next year."
