The West End

The West End is an area of the city of Dundee, Scotland. It is bordered to the south by the River Tay, to the north by Blackness and to the east by the city centre. The West End is primarily a residential area, which surrounds its main commercial thoroughfare, Perth Road, and the main campus of the University of Dundee.

Since 1998, the Dundee City Council has developed a "Cultural Quarter" at the boundary between the city centre and the West End which is now home to the Dundee Repertory Theatre, the Whitehall Theatre, the Sensation Science Centre and Dundee Contemporary Arts building as well as other commercial galleries and studios, and the university's Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design.
