The Scottish city of flowers, nicknamed "the city of granite", is a real open-air museum. Whether you want to discover all the castles and ruins surrounding the city, or whether you want to take advantage of a natural and authentic destination to learn English during your language trips, this destination will satisfy you because it meets a maximum of criteria. Come to Aberdeen and discover its beautifully preserved Scottish heritage!
The city of Aberdeen is a port city located in the north-east of Scotland and borders the North Sea. It is the third largest city in Scotland and is the European offshore oil capital.
The city is nicknamed "the granite city" because of its unique architecture consisting of buildings made entirely of grey granite. The city is particularly well flowered and has been promoted more than ten times as the best flowered city by the horticultural company Britain In Bloom. This is your chance to stroll through the cobbled streets and beautiful gardens to recharge your batteries after a well-deserved day at an English school in Aberdeen.
During your English course in Aberdeen and after your English classes in the evenings or afternoons, you can visit the city's history museum called the Toolbooth. Or visit the Maritime Museum in Provost Ross's House, the oldest house in the city. Theatres and art galleries are also available at several locations around Aberdeen. And don't forget to admire the magnificent granite building of Marischall College, founded in 1593, which is the second largest granite building in the world!
If you don't have an English course at a language school in Aberdeen during weekends, you can take advantage of the opportunity to make some trips to the surrounding area called Aberdeenshire. The area is full of ancient ruins and castles, such as Dunnottar Castle, Crathes Castle, Sauchen Castle, Fraser Castle, Methlick Castle, Drum Castle and Kildrummy Castle. If you're a fan of history and legends, you're in for a treat!
Aberdeen's main street, Union Street, is home to almost all of the city's trendy bars, pubs and restaurants. The street is always packed with locals, tourists and students until late at night. You will be able to perfect and practice your English language skills and what you have learnt at the language school by talking to people during the day or in the evening!
Large golden sandy beaches border the city and are ideal for resting and revising your English courses at the end of the day. You can also swim in the sea if you are not cold!
If you don't know which city to go to for a language stay in Scotland, you're sure to make a perfect match with Aberdeen, which has something for everyone!
In order to get to the Scottish city and go on a language course in Aberdeen, you can fly from France for direct flights or with stopovers. This is the cheapest and quickest way to get there.
The airport is less than 10 kilometres from the city of Aberdeen. Buses provide the connection and transfer between the airport and Aberdeen in 45 minutes for less than 2 euros. Taxis and Uber are also available at the airport to make the trip, but are necessarily less economical.
During your stay in Aberdeen, you will need to get around! Whether it's in the morning to get to your English language school, at lunchtime, in the afternoon or in the evening after your English course.
You should know that like all ancient cities in Scotland, Aberdeen is not very big and, given its small size, you can easily walk around.
